Recovering From Opioid Addiction
The road to recovery from addiction can be difficult. If you or someone you love suffers from addiction problems, Master Center for Addiction Medicine offers multiple treatment centers throughout Virginia. With our medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs, we can help those addicted to opioids and alcohol start their journey toward sober living. We provide comprehensive programs of medication-assisted and therapy-based treatments.
After using opioids like heroin or prescription pain relievers for a while, your brain starts to change. These changes can lead to withdrawal symptoms and make it hard to quit using opioids. Opioid withdrawals are often intense and even dangerous, bringing symptoms such as:
- Intense cravings for opioids
- Muscle aches and pains
- Nausea and vomiting
- Problems sleeping
Using a professional detoxification center like Master Center can help you safely detox from opioids and begin your road to recovery. Medical professionals can safely monitor withdrawal symptoms to maximize safety and comfort.
Suboxone Treatment for Opioid Withdrawals
Suboxone treatment is a common method of detox from opioid addiction. Suboxone is a prescription medication made of buprenorphine and naloxone that blocks the difficult side effects of withdrawal from opioids like heroin, oxycodone, and fentanyl.
In a detox setting, the buprenorphine in the drug can minimize the adverse side effects of cutting out substance abuse. Our programs also involve professional monitoring during the detox period to ensure the patient’s safety. MAT stops users from being in danger when they cease using opioids as a holistic approach.
It’s important to know that medication-assisted treatment is not merely replacing one addictive substance with another. Instead, the MAT program treats the effects of addiction comprehensively, dealing effectively with the physical difficulties of overcoming drug dependence through medication in tandem with other therapies. We believe that by removing the physical and mental side effects caused by opioid withdrawal, patients can make better progress and maintain sobriety. When combined with counseling and therapy, treatment with Suboxone substantially increases the likelihood that patients will overcome their addiction for the long run.

Our Approach To Suboxone Treatment
Our holistic approach to Suboxone treatment sets us apart from other centers in Virginia. Using small doses of Suboxone through MAT allows the body and mind to overcome opioid addiction and heal over a more extended time.
Over the course of their treatment, patients will make their way through the MAT program that we have created. We begin with an initial exam and counseling to get to know a patient and ensure we offer the best Suboxone treatment options for them.
After abstaining from opioids for at least 16 hours, we can begin the induction phase of Suboxone treatment. A doctor at one of our Virginia clinics will administer a patient’s first dose of Suboxone to ease withdrawal symptoms with the help of buprenorphine. The patient will need to return to the clinic for three days to monitor progress.
After three days, the patient will enter the stabilization phase, where they will begin working toward their recovery goals while still receiving Suboxone treatment. This phase includes one-on-one counseling, group sessions, and other services.
After significant progress in MAT, the patient will move into the maintenance phase. During this time, patients work with a medical doctor who may continue administering medication as needed.
