and its Benefits During Detox
Sublocade detox reduce
cravings and physical withdrawal symptoms
The comfort of Sublocade is its once a month delivery making it different from Suboxone. Our medical staff at La Jolla Recovery can prescribe and offer this medical assisted treatment. Once received, the buprenorphine fully attaches to all the opiate receptors in the brain, reducing cravings and withdrawal. In case of opiate presence, burprenorphine blocks those receptors and won’t allow any other opiates to attach. This makes it possible to not be high, reducing the chances of “just one more time” incident turning into full blown use again. Also, the saturated receptors with the medicine reduce the discomfort of early detox and wanting to use. At La Jolla Recovery, we are proud to provide science based approaches that increase the success of detox from opiates and heroin.
