Buprenorphine Should Be Taken In Conjunction With A Program of Recovery
Updated: Mar 23
Many people make the mistake of thinking they can take Buprenorphine (Suboxone or Subutex), kick back, and recover from opioid addiction. Simply put, this is wrong thinking. We sincerely hope that one day, modern scientists will come up with the ever elusive “magic pill” that will allow people to be instantly cured of addiction. We really do. But, as of 2020, it just doesn’t exist yet – or, if it does, we’ve never heard of it.
Taking Buprenorphine should be part of a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) plan. Medication Assisted Treatment includes medication and therapy. This means if you have had a problem with opioid drugs, and you are taking Buprenorphine, you are going to have to do more than just take your medication. You are going to have to get actively involved in your recovery and take aggressive measures to recover from the disease of addiction. This happens through counseling, behavioral therapy, rehabilitation, and the process of 12-step recovery.
If you want to break the bondage of addiction, you simply must work through the issues that caused you to become addicted in the first place. Maybe you experienced trauma as a child. Maybe you have a co-occurring disorder. Whatever your individual circumstances are, you are going to need to stay steadfast in your commitment to remain abstinent from all mood and mind-altering substances. We also recommend that you pursue alternative methods to treat your addiction; like art therapy, yoga, meditation – or whatever you can find that will help you in recovery.
