HARM REDUCTION & OPIOIDS
Methadone & Suboxone is used to treat addiction to other opioids, for example codeine, oxycodone, hydromorphone, fentanyl, morphine and heroin. It is not useful in treating an addiction to cocaine or crack, methamphetamine (speed), MDMA (ecstasy), benzodiazepines (valium and others), marijuana or alcohol.
Methadone is very effective in reducing the symptoms of opiate withdrawal and therefore also the craving to use opiates. Methadone is a synthetic opioid drug developed in Germany in WWII as an analgesic (pain killer). Today it is most commonly used to treat dependence (addiction) of other opiates.
SUBOXONE & SOCIETY
Suboxone can be effective whether you typically inject, snort or swallow opiates. Several scientific studies have proven that those with addiction on an opioid maintenance program are less likely to have legal or medical problems and are more likely to hold down a job, stay in school and keep their family together.
The evidence is overwhelming – the patient benefits but so do their family and society.
Naloxone is a safe, highly effective rescue medicine for opioid overdose, a leading cause of death worldwide.
Naloxone attaches to the same parts of the brain that receive heroin and other opioids, and it blocks the opioids for 30-90 minutes to reverse the respiratory depression that would otherwise lead to death from overdose.
