Now accepting Medicare! Please call today for more information.

24/7 Appointment Scheduling

Proudly serving the Ann Arbor, Michigan community, our subutex clinic provides adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from heroin, oxycodone, Percocet, and other opiates.

How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Subutex is a U.S Food and Drug Administration-approved medication that has helped countless individuals who are struggling with addictions to opioids. Subutex is clinically proven to be a safe medication for individuals who are addicted to heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers. When taken within a medication assisted treatment program, Subutex provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Individuals who are interested in incorporating Subutex into their treatment plan should first consult with their physician to determine if Subutex is the appropriate medication based on their specific treatment requirements.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Subutex includes buprenorphine as its main active ingredient, which does carry addictive properties along with its use. However, when taken as prescribed and under the guidance of a trained medical professional, the risk for addiction to Subutex is extremely low.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

Subutex will not cause patients to test positive on a drug screen, as a specific test is required in order to detect the presence of buprenorphine within a person’s system. However, patients who abuse other substances, such as opioids, during the course of treatment will test positive on a drug screen panel.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

The length of time that a patient remains on Subutex for will be dependent upon his or her individual treatment needs. By working closely with your team of medical providers, you will be able to determine how long Subutex will benefit you for based upon your unique needs and requirements.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Because Subutex can negatively interact with different medications, prescriptions, and substances, patients are advised to openly discuss the use of other drugs with their physician prior to incorporating Subutex into their treatment regimen. Your physician will be able to provide you with more specific information regarding side effects that may take place depending on the specific medication(s) that you are prescribed. Patients who are taking Subutex should refrain from using alcohol and other opioids during the course of treatment due to the extremely dangerous side effects that can take place.

What if I no longer wish to take Subutex? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Patients who no longer wish to take Subutex should work closely with their treatment provider in order to safely taper off of their medication. Because symptoms of withdrawal can arise if the use of Subutex suddenly ceases, patients are advised to follow the guidelines set in place by their medical team. Many patients will begin treatment by being prescribed Subutex and later transition onto Suboxone for long-term maintenance. By working with your physician and counselor, you will be able to determine if you should continue taking Subutex or transition onto a different medication.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

The treatment provided by Ann Arbor Comprehensive Treatment Center is highly customized based upon the requirements of each individual patient. Because treatment plans vary patient to patient, the final cost of care will also differ between patients as well. To learn more about the treatment options that we offer as well as the cost of care at our center, please contact our intake team today. We look forward to helping you take the first steps towards lasting recovery.
