Inside Suboxone Addiction
Suboxone is a medication designed to ease the withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid addiction, whether from legal or controlled substances. Suboxone also acts as a painkiller to help ease the transition period for substance abusers, making it easier to prevent relapse.
This medication is now generally favored over medications like methadone, which can be habit-forming. Our Suboxone doctors in Charleston are cautious and prescribe just the right amount to help you on your journey to sobriety without causing new problems.

Once you stop taking a substance you’ve become addicted to, you typically undergo an unpleasant withdrawal period. Typically, the first week is the hardest, with the effects peaking around days 4 to 7. You might notice anxiety, sweating, muscle aches, chills, nausea, vomiting, trouble sleeping, and several other symptoms.
After the first week, the effects of withdrawal tend to decline and become easier to manage. You’ll usually experience the effects of withdrawal for around 1 month, but they can occur for several months depending on your usage. Suboxone acts as a painkiller and helps to reduce your chances of relapse by making the withdrawal timeline easier to cope with.
