About Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is a medication used to treat Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) as part of medication-assisted treatment (MAT). It is a partial opioid agonist, which means that it activates the same receptors in the brain as opioids like heroin or fentanyl, but it does so to a lesser degree. This reduces the risk of overdose and withdrawal symptoms compared to full agonists like these drugs. This medication helps people to quit or reduce the use of illicit opiates such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl, and other pain relievers like morphine, oxycodone, etc. The Buprenorphine (Suboxone) medication can be prescribed by medical providers after an in-person or telemedicine appointment.

About Naltrexone

Naltrexone medication is used with therapy to help stabilize people that are struggling with alcohol and opioid abuse. The medication can be prescribed during the first visit per the medical provider’s consideration based on your health history. Naltrexone comes in a form of tablets or in a long-release formulation, Vivitrol. Naltrexone is not a narcotic, doesn’t build new dependence, and helps reduce cravings and block alcohol and opioid effects on the brain.

About opioid addiction

Are you or your loved one affected by unhealthy opioid use? Call 888-999-2041

New Horizons Medical helps people to overcome substance addiction with medication assisted recovery programs.

In the United States, millions of people struggle with opioid addiction. When an individual is unable to stop using a substance despite recognizing all the negative consequences of such use, it is known as substance use disorder. Addictive drugs such as heroin, opioids, morphine, opiates, meth, and other depressants can change the brain’s chemical levels making it harder to achieve a euphoric feeling. Over time, the tolerance to such drugs increases, and an even higher quantity is needed to feel something. Without these substances, a person can develop withdrawal symptoms caused by substance cravings.
