What is Suboxone®?
Suboxone® is a drug-dependency medication that helps wean patients off of opioids and is approved for treatment in an office-based setting. CAT’s Suboxone® program is an outpatient program through which the medication is dispensed for take-home use, just like any other prescription. The treatment not only helps with withdrawal symptoms but controls cravings. The treatment is paired with one-on-one counseling to increase opportunities for success.
However, unlike most Suboxone® treatment programs, CAT offers multiple levels of care – from pretreatment to detoxification to aftercare. We are able to tend to most chemical dependency treatment needs right here. Our patients do not move from doctor to doctor or from one treatment center to another, so they are able to quickly grow comfortable with our staff and facility. All this translates to a more effective treatment program.
