Quoted From: https://equinoxclinics.com/Treatments.html#opiod

"Currently, the use of illicit opioids (heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, among others) have significantly increased the occurrence of overdose and death related to their use. For a patient addicted to opioids, we understand that is vitally important to address signs and symptoms of cravings and physical withdrawal. This is important so that the patient can return to feeling normal again, and not battling the constant cycle between stability and withdrawal syndrome. Once these symptoms are controlled, the patient can fully engage in the behavioral aspects (counseling, 12-step facilitation, group therapy) of treatment that are proven to save lives and help maintain longevity with recovery.Medications currently FDA-approved to treat opioid use disorder are: Suboxone, Subutex, Sublocade, Vivitrol, and Naltrexone."
