Suboxone Treatment for Co-occurring Conditions


Suboxone treatment can be a useful option for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression or anxiety, and opioid addiction. Here are some key points to consider:

  • Suboxone and Mental Health: Suboxone is a medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction that can help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. While it is not specifically designed to treat mental health disorders, research has shown that it can be effective for individuals with co-occurring conditions.
  • Benefits of Suboxone: Suboxone treatment can provide a number of benefits for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders, including improved mood and reduced anxiety, as well as better physical health outcomes and reduced risk of relapse.
  • Risks of Suboxone: Like any medication, suboxone carries potential risks and side effects and may not be appropriate for all individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders. It is important to work closely with a primary care provider in Maryland to determine if suboxone is a safe and appropriate treatment option.
  • Integrated Treatment: Suboxone treatment is often most effective when integrated with other forms of treatment, such as behavioral therapy and counseling, to address both the addiction and the mental health disorder. It can help individuals develop coping skills and strategies to manage both conditions simultaneously.
  • Monitoring and Support: Individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders and opioid addiction may require additional monitoring and support during suboxone treatment, including regular check-ins with a healthcare provider and ongoing management of any mental health symptoms that arise.

Individuals can improve their chances of achieving and maintaining long-term recovery by working closely with Dominion HealthCare Services, Inc. and developing a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses both conditions.
