At Freedom Healthcare Services, we believe that the process of recovery can be aided with the use of Suboxone®, an FDA approved medication used for the treatment of opioid dependency. Suboxone® contains the medications Buprenorphine and Naloxone.
Suboxone® allows Freedom Healthcare Services to treat patients in a private, confidential, and safe environment. Suboxone® allows our medical and clinical teams to customize a course of treatment for the patient. Suboxone® can be taken daily in the privacy of your home. Patients do not need hospitalization, daily visits to the facility, or residential care. Suboxone® suppresses symptoms of withdrawal, reduces cravings for illicit opioids or prescription medications, blocks the effects of opioids if taken, and helps a patient focus on treatment and the recovery process. Suboxone® allows a patient more time for work, family, and other daily activities.
The FHS medical and clinical teams focus on assisting the patient to develop a plan to achieve a drug-free lifestyle. Patients can address the issues that may have contributed to the addiction, such as depression, anxiety, or other psychiatric conditions.
The length of therapy with Suboxone is determined by the patient and the FHS treatment team. When a patient is ready, Suboxone can be safely decreased or tapered slowly until the medication is no longer necessary. Patients requesting a reduction in medication work in conjunction with our medical and clinical teams to determine the proper course of action.
To be prescribed Suboxone, a patient can arrange an appointment with FHS. FHS will ask the patient to arrive in a state of mild-to-moderate withdraw. FHS will perform a full medical and clinical evaluation to determine the proper level of medication and explain the counseling requirements for the program.
By combining Suboxone® with our counseling program, patients have effectively been treated and achieved a drug-free lifestyle. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 412-221-1091 to speak with an intake coordinator who can assist you.
