Most people are not able to just walk away from opioid addiction. They need help to change their thinking, behavior, and environment. Quitting “cold turkey” has a poor success rate, unfortunately, as fewer than 25 percent of patients are able to remain abstinent for a full year.
Dr. White provides medication-assisted treatment options like Suboxone (buprenorphine) and Naltrexone which benefits patients in staying sober while reducing the side effects of withdrawal and curbing cravings which can lead to relapse. Suboxone is utilized to complement the education, counseling and other support measures that focus on behavioral aspects of opioid addiction.
