The team at Lynx Healthcare can treat your addiction to opioids, including heroin, oxycodone, or hydrocodone, with an individualized program. They encourage you to stop using for at least 12 hours before starting treatment with Suboxone®, a medication that blocks the effects of opioids within your system.
Within 45 minutes of taking Suboxone, your symptoms of withdrawal diminish. From there, you can place more focus on your treatment and other important parts of your life.
Treatment programs for other addictions like methamphetamines, alcohol, marijuana, and tobacco do not involve Suboxone but are equally individualized. They also address health concerns commonly associated with addiction.
Every week during your program, the Lynx Healthcare team:
- Evaluates your medication dose
- Performs urinalysis for drug screening
- Evaluates any side effects you get from the medication
- Provides counseling
After the first week, your cravings for the substance should dwindle significantly. For the best chance at success during your program, you should try your best to avoid other substances that aren’t the target of your addiction program too.
