At the Lakehouse Recovery Center, we are dedicated to providing the safety and support people need, in order to achieve sobriety from substances once and for all, and gain freedom that will allow them to live happy, healthy lives. We provide a wide array of drug and alcohol recovery programs, including suboxone detox treatment as the first stage in a person’s recovery plan.
Here, we have years of experience of helping people to navigate the challenges and symptoms of suboxone detox, in order to experience the joy and freedom of sobriety in their lives.
Suboxone Detox Withdrawal Symptoms
Suboxone is a prescription medication often used in aiding people to recovery from opioid dependence. However, while it can be effective in this capacity, it is also highly addictive and lead to instances of abuse.
When people are taking steps to end this addiction, there can be significant negative withdrawal symptoms, if people quit suddenly or “cold turkey.” Many believe that withdrawal is rather uncommon due to the nature of this drug.
In reality, these withdrawal symptoms are common to other withdrawal symptoms commonly seen. Just because it is a prescription drug does not lessen the chance of addiction or the feelings of withdrawal.
Some of the symptoms people may experience include things such as:
- Stomach aches
- Muscle aches
- Strong cravings
While these symptoms tend to be strongest during the first 72 hours of detoxing from suboxone, the likelihood of depression actually increases in the second week and symptoms can linger for a month.
Because of the combination of symptoms that detox from suboxone can include, it’s important for people to have professional support and oversight, as they take this empowering first step toward sobriety. During our suboxone detox program, we provide people with full-service support they need to be successful, including addressing and minimizing any physical discomfort they might be experiencing.
The Importance of Support
Due to the symptoms of depression, it’s important for people to have support in place to help them not only to fend off symptoms but to also have guidance and support, so they can process their thoughts and feelings, through this time.
This support is not only incredibly important to make sure people are safe, but to also ensure that they are successful in recovery and don’t relapse, because of challenges or cravings.
We find that the combination of services and support we provide to clients not only ensures they safely and successfully detox from Suboxone, but also supports them to feel energized and clear-headed, as they enter the therapeutic aspects of their Suboxone treatment process.
