What is Sublocade?
Fort Lauderdale Sublocade doctors are learning the value of this new and important treatment for opioid addiction. Sublocade is a new medication that is given as a monthly injection. And, as reported in this New Start Recovery article, it provides a new hope for those who are addicted to opiates and opioids and their loved ones.
What makes Sublocade different?
Sublocade contains the same active ingredient found in Suboxone, Subutex and ZubSolv. It is buprenorphine. The difference is that when you take one of those older brands, you must place your medication under your tongue to dissolve every day. However, Sublocade is a monthly injection, given just under the skin. There is no need to think about it between monthly visits to the doctor.
Fort Lauderdale Sublocade doctors are now offering this treatment.
While Sublocade has been available since March of 2018, it has taken some time to work out the process of getting it approved by insurance companies and shipped from specialty pharmacies. Now, doctors in the Broward County area are ready to provide Sublocade treatment.
Peace of mind.
One significant benefit of a monthly injection is peace of mind. Hence, family members can rest assured that the medicine is working. There is no need to be concerned that their loved one is missing doses or not taking it correctly.
