Heroin is a drug that does not discriminate; it does not know the difference between a 12 year old or an 80 year old, it does not know white from black, it does not know male from female and it simply does not care about you. And this why we have buprenorphine addiction treatment, a drug that helps relax users out of the withdrawal phase that comes after quitting the drug. In fact, buprenorphine doctors are becoming increasingly available in various locations throughout the country which ensures easy availability of treatments for heroin addicts. The crisis is greater than a few people shooting up and overdosing, the problem extends to creation of massive numbers of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C patients due to sharing of used needles. In the USA alone, heroin has reached out to more than 13.5 million addicts.
But since the resurfacing of heroin in the 21st century, we have lost more than a million lives to this drug in the years 2003 to 2013 alone. Buprenorphine treatment has its benefits and is a 100 times better than the earlier preferred drug of choice, ‘Methadone’. Unlike ‘Methadone’ which was as addictive a drug as heroin, ‘Buprenorphine’ has completely different effects on the patient.
Buprenorphine treatment doctors use the drug extensively as it is a part opioid agonist, meaning that it can stimulate the brain into thinking that the user is pushing heroin when in fact, he or she is just administering buprenorphine. But it should also be noticed that like most anti-withdrawal drugs, this drug has a few side-effects too, but they’re never life threatening. So book your appointment with buprenorphine doctors today only at your nearest OpiateCare facility.
