Suboxone Treatment Online: Office-Based Opioid Addiction Treatment Online

Office-Based Suboxone Doctors Are Providing Treatment Via Telemedicine

There has been a movement towards online telemedicine treatment of opioid addiction. This is because opioid addiction is such a serious problem and many patients live in rural areas. Even in urban areas, getting to a doctor’s office can be difficult and time consuming. If only it was easier to see a doctor for treatment, more patients would seek help. Telemedicine makes this possible.

Medication-Assisted Treatment Online Works.

Suboxone doctors have traditionally seen their patients in the office for monthly visits. This is a huge convenience over the daily visits required in methadone clinics. Suboxone film and similar buprenorphine-based meds have made the treatment of opioid dependence easier than ever. Yet, there is still a huge gap between the number of patients getting treatment and the patients who need addiction treatment. In areas where doctors have been able to set up telemedicine, or telehealth, Suboxone treatment programs, there has been a significant improvement in access to care. The dealers are making it easier to buy heroin and pills. They are providing door-to-door service and fast delivery. Suboxone should also be easily obtained by patients suffering from opiate addiction. Suboxone treatment online makes it possible to deliver this care directly to the patient in a safe and compliant manner.

How does buprenorphine work?

Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Suboxone, works by blocking the opioid receptor. While the drug is bound to the opioid receptor, blocking other opioids, it also partially activates the receptor. This unique mixed action is what makes buprenorphine so effective. In not only prevents withdrawal symptoms, it also blocks cravings for opioids. Because of its unique properties in blocking cravings and withdrawal symptoms, it is a highly effective drug for treating addiction to opiates and opioids.

Substance abuse is the mental health crisis of this century.

There is a greater need ever for medication-based treatment for addiction. FDA-approved buprenorphine has a high success rate compared to mental health therapy alone. The best treatment programs offer both medication and therapy. If a patient is addicted to an opioid, such as heroin or oxycodone, they should be educated that Suboxone is considered to be the gold standard of treatment in combination with behavioral therapy. If a patient takes Suboxone sublingual film or tablets as prescribed by a doctor, they are considered to be clean and in recovery.

Barriers to prescribing Suboxone by telemedicine.

Unfortunately, online pharmacies in the past have made a bad name for internet-based health care. Because of this, states have strict laws regarding the limits of telehealth. Because of this, there are some limits to providing telemedicine online Suboxone care. Additionally, doctors must be careful in treating patients to prevent diversion and regularly monitor patients to ensure that they are staying clean from drugs. In spite of these limitations, Suboxone treatment online is possible and is already being done in many areas. I am confident that lawmakers will continue to work on reducing existing barriers. Doctors and experts in the tech industry will also do their part to improve systems to provide quality telemedicine medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone.

How do I get my prescription from an online Suboxone doctor?

When a doctor prescribes Suboxone treatment in-person in an office-based medication-assisted treatment program, the patient is often handed a paper prescription to bring to the pharmacy. How is this done over a video call with a doctor? This is easy to do. The doctor may either use e-prescribing, or they may simply call in the prescription to a local pharmacy. For patients who are unable to travel to the pharmacy, some pharmacies are willing to deliver medications directly to the patient’s door. This includes special compounding pharmacies that can create customized buprenorphine products individually adjusted to help the patient gradually taper their dosage down over time.

The future of substance abuse treatment is here today.

Online Suboxone treatment via telemedicine is already here. Now, it is just a matter of making it more available in more areas. If we educate treatment providers and patients on the benefits of telehealth, we can work towards a future where Suboxone treatment with telemedicine is commonplace.
