The current epidemic of opioid addiction is running rampant and unchecked across the country like a cancer. State and federal officials as well as treatment professionals, are scrambling to find ways to provide access to safe and effective treatment options for their constituencies. It’s been challenging to find viable medication options for people struggling with opioid addiction. It’s a double edged sword, given the possibility that an individual could easily become cross dependent on the substance that is intended to help them remain abstinent.
Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, has been the gold standard in the treatment of opioid addiction. In proper dosages, it can suppress symptoms of opioid withdrawal, decrease cravings, and block the effects of opioids. The main goal being to help clients to stay in recovery longer and greatly decrease the chance of relapse while they work to build the skills needed to live a clean and sober lifestyle.

Buprenorphine has previously been available in pill or sublingual film forms, but many have found issues that arise with these methods. Patients can forget to take their medication, or they end up taking too much or not enough, and there is always the possibility of loss or theft of the medication. The implant looks to mitigate these risks and will play an increasingly important role in the treatment of patients suffering from opioid addiction. Probuphine is an implant, and circumvents the usual shortcomings of other Buprenorphine delivery options, greatly reducing the risk of overdose, misuse and dependence.The new implant also gives hope for those searching for options to get off methadone or Vivitrol shots.
Probuphine is an implant, and therefore keeps the low-dose of medication constant and steady. There is no fluctuation, which greatly decreases the risk of overdose or dependence. The implant option also nulls the issue of the patient forgetting to take their medication daily, or the risk that it may be lost, or stolen. One implant session of Probuphine lasts for six months, making it convenient for patients who can tolerate and are already successfully on buprenorphine.
