The opioid crisis is evident across the nation and has proven that addiction doesn't discriminate. People of all ages, incomes, education levels and backgrounds can become dependent on opioids, whether they were introduced to the drug illicitly or prescribed as a painkiller.

At Axcel Treatment and Recovery Clinic with locations in Greenville, Dallas, San Antonio, and Denison, TX, we can help you on your road to recovery. We offer judgment-free care by helping ease the symptoms and potentially harmful side effects of drug withdrawal. One treatment method offered at our clinics is suboxone, which can help make withdrawal less difficult so you are less likely to fall back into opioid abuse.

What is suboxone?

Suboxone is a prescription medication that consists of naloxone, an opioid antagonist, and buprenorphine, a partial opioid antagonist. The medication, which mimics the sensation of opioids but to a lesser extent, can help wean you off fentanyl gradually to reduce the severeness of withdrawal symptoms.

The specialists at our Greenville, Dallas, San Antonio, and Denison, TX, offices will monitor you throughout the course of treatment, as withdrawal can cause symptoms ranging from moderate, such as vomiting, mood swings, or insomnia, to severe or potentially fatal, including seizures or respiratory failure.

Is suboxone dangerous?

Suboxone should only be used under the supervision of a medical professional, and when done so it is safe and effective. Because the medication is a partial opioid antagonist and is less likely to slow breathing, it would be very difficult to overdose on suboxone alone. There is no distinct timeline of how long suboxone treatment should last and it is important to use only the dosage prescribed by your doctor and for the advised length of time.

At Axcel Treatment and Recovery Clinic, we are here to help you on the road to recovery every step of the way. Make an appointment at our clinics in Denison, Greenville, Dallas, or San Antonio, TX, by calling 866-662-8282 today.

At Axcel Treatment and Recovery Clinic in Denison, Greenville, San Antonio, and Dallas, TX, your recovery specialist—Dr. Sullivan Bryant—sees clients succeed with methadone drug treatment programs. Helping people conquer their different addictions, methadone stops the compulsion of seeking and using drugs, thus allowing for a stable and lasting recovery.

FAQs about methadone

What is methadone?

It's a synthetic opioid useful in treating chronic pain and in helping people recover from drug addiction.

How does it work?

While methadone also is a painkiller, it does not cause the substantial highs which other opioids are known for. As such, it helps people address the mental, emotional, and psychosocial behaviors associated with addiction without the horrible physical effects and cravings that withdrawal can cause.

How do I use it?

Dr. Bryant will review your drug treatment program with you, including how to use your methadone. It's critical to take your methadone tablet or liquid precisely as prescribed. Additionally, you should not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice throughout the course of your treatment with methadone.

Will I have to take this drug for the rest of my life?

No, you won't. When you take methadone as prescribed and comply with your other therapies, you will be weaned off the drug as your addictive symptoms subside. However, this gradual tapering of doses must be supervised by a physician at one of our locations in Denison, Greenville, San Antonio, or Dallas, TX. Never stop methadone by yourself as you may experience severe withdrawal symptoms.

Quality care which works

At Axcel Treatment and Recovery Clinic, you can succeed in your addiction recovery. Drug treatment with methadone is just part of what we do. We are open Monday through Saturday mornings and have locations in Denison, Greenville, San Antonio, and Dallas, TX.
