Dr. fortune is certified to prescribe soboxone and supervise recovery from drug dependence. Suboxone is an effective treatment for those addicted to oxycontin, vicodin, xanax, or other prescription drugs as well as addictions to marijuana, opiates, cocaine, crack, crystal meth, hallucinogens, and heroin. Suboxone decreases cravings for opioids , and suppresses symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
The main active ingredient in SUBOXONE is buprenorphine, and also NALAXONE which is an opioid antagonist. Dr. fortune specializes in detox programs that are discrete as he will visit the patient personally in their homes while recovering from substance addiction to monitor progress, as well as to introduce lifestyle changes to help patients recover permanently.
How Suboxone works:
When opioids attach to the mu receptors, dopamine is released, causing pleasurable feelings to be produced.1,22.
As opioids leave the receptors, pleasurable feelings fade and withdrawal symptoms (and possibly cravings) begin.13.
Opioids continue leaving the mu receptors until the person is in a mild-to-moderate state of withdrawal. At this point, SUBOXONE therapy can begin.4.
The primary active ingredient in SUBOXONE—buprenorphine—attaches to the empty opioid receptors, suppressing withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings.1 As a partial opioid agonist, SUBOXONE works by controlling withdrawal symptoms and cravings and produces a limited euphoria or “high.”
Buprenorphine attaches firmly to the receptors. At adequate maintenance doses, buprenorphine fills most receptors and blocks other opioids from attaching. Buprenorphine has a long duration of action, so its effects do not wear off quickly.
