and its Benefits During Detox
Sublocade detox reduce
cravings and physical withdrawal symptoms
The comfort of Sublocade is its once a monthly delivery making it different from Suboxone. Our medical staff at La Jolla Recovery can prescribe and offer this medically assisted treatment. Once received, the buprenorphine fully attaches to all the opiate receptors in the brain, reducing cravings and withdrawal. In opiate presence, buprenorphine blocks those receptors and won’t allow any other opiates to attach. This makes it possible not to be high, reducing the chances of “just one more time” incidents turning into full-blown use again. Also, the saturated receptors with the medicine mitigate the discomfort of early detox and want to use. At La Jolla Recovery, we are proud to provide science-based approaches that increase the success of detox from opiates and heroin.
Sublocade is used as part of a complete treatment program for heroin and opiates here in San Diego that includes counseling and psychosocial support. Sublocade is more convenient, has more consistent effects, and can not be abused or diverted because we administer it with safety and control. Other medication-assisted treatments for drug and alcohol rehab include suboxone, buprenorphine, naloxone, Vivitrol, Subutex, and ketamine, among other evidence-based therapies. Recovery can now be embraced with more significant results from science and support for the devastating effects of opiates, including fentanyl, in our society. Looking for a twelve-step program that embraces medication-assisted treatment such as sublocade? Let La Jolla Recovery offer a unique and tailored rehabilitation program that meets you where you are at, regardless of affinity to 12 steps or needing alternative approaches for your cultural needs.
