Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder in Kansas City

Opioid use disorders are notorious for being the harbingers of significant distress and impairment. As the opioid crisis in America continues to grow, many more opioid users suffer from opioid withdrawal syndrome. Withdrawal symptoms can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with, causing users to prioritize seeking and using the drug over their well-being, financial and social responsibilities, and ties with friends and family.

Opioids: Side Effects, Addiction, and Withdrawal

Opioids are a family of drugs derived from the opium poppy (codeine, morphine, heroin) or produced synthetically (hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, etc.) They act on the brain’s many opioid receptors and are used to treat severe acute pain. Possible side effects include decreased respiration rate, feelings of pleasure and euphoria, depression, nausea, and constipation.

However, long-term use can be highly addictive, and users develop tolerance over time, requiring progressively higher doses. Withdrawal from the drug is highly unpleasant, to the point that addicted individuals will do anything to avoid it, jeopardizing relationships, jobs, and even committing crimes. The combination of increasing tolerance and drug-seeking behavior increases users’ risk of death by accidental overdose.

We believe it’s important to treat addiction as a chronic disease and remove the stigma surrounding opiate users to get people the professional help they need to beat their addictions and live healthy, fulfilling lives free of drug abuse.

About Suboxone® Treatment in Kansas City

Suboxone® is an FDA-approved medication that has life-changing effects on opioid users. It is designed to help people who want to stop taking opioids safely. These include street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl and prescription pain medication such as codeine, morphine, Demerol, Dilaudid, OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin.

It acts by binding to opioid receptors in your brain but activating them in a way that does not produce a “high” while eliminating withdrawal symptoms and associated cravings. This allows your brain to focus on the healthy, routine pleasures of life rather than seeking another “hit.” Over time, Suboxone® treatment can successfully allow patients to regain control of their lives, health, and relationships with their loved ones.

Effective Suboxone® treatment involves a complete plan with controlled drug administration, counseling, psychological and social support. Since every individual is different, we work with you to design a successful plan for your needs.
