"Suboxone is a prescription medication that is used to treat those suffering with opioid addiction. It contains a combination of two ingredients; Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Buprenorphine, an opioid agonist, blocks the opiate receptors and decreases a person"s urges, while Naloxone, an opioid antagonist, works to stop the effects of opioid medications that usually lead to opioid dependence. Together, these two ingredients work to reduce withdrawal symptoms and aid in a more manageable sobriety and recovery. Suboxone has recently become the most popular treatment medication for opioid addiction recovery, even above other popular drugs such as Methadone. Unlike some other medication treatments for substance abuse, Suboxone is available to be prescribed through a doctor or healthcare provider, rather than solely through a treatment facility. This makes it more easily accessible to those who require treatment."
