ReVIDA Recovery Explains What Happens After a Suboxone Missed Dose
October 21, 2022 at 21:19
ReVIDA Recovery® Duffield, an addiction treatment center in Duffield, VA, has released a blog post that explains what happens when a patient living with an addiction misses one dose of Suboxone® (buprenorphine). The article assures those who have missed one dose of Suboxone® (buprenorphine) that it is unlikely to have any significant side effects. It is alright to go ahead and take the dose once the patient remembers missing a single dose, or if it is almost time for the next dose, to simply wait and take the next dose.
Patients are advised not to panic when they suddenly remember missing a dose and to not take any extra doses to make up for the missed one. It is important to note that no one should ever double up on doses of Suboxone® (buprenorphine) without a doctor’s recommendation when one dose is missed. Taking more will not make up for the missed dose because it has a ceiling effect, which means that after a certain dosage is reached, taking more will not increase its effects.
However, when several doses of Suboxone® (buprenorphine) are missed, this will likely result in serious withdrawal symptoms. Those who missed several doses are advised to start taking Suboxone® (buprenorphine) regularly as prescribed once they remember.
They want to point out that at ReVIDA Recovery®, they understand the difficulty of recovering from an opioid use disorder. They provide Suboxone® (buprenorphine) addiction treatment and tailor-fitted programming and ensure that individuals living with a substance use disorder have hope for a life of recovery.
A spokesperson for ReVIDA Recovery® says, “If you’ve been using opioid drugs including heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, oxycontin, Percocet, Lortab, Roxicodone, or fentanyl and you can’t go on using or can’t seem to stop, we can help. With decades of experience and understanding of substance use and the lifestyle, we look at each life as a unique opportunity to restore family, friends, health, and joy. If you have substance use disorder or know someone who does, we offer an effective range of professional and committed resources.”
The ReVIDA Recovery® outpatient program has been designed to offer a flexible and structured evidence-based treatment. The program includes education classes, individual and group therapy, and 12-step meetings. They will also help the patient connect with valuable resources and community partners who have joined together to serve as an extended support team for people struggling with an addiction.
They provide a medically supervised Suboxone® (buprenorphine) program that is designed to calm the patient’s mind and prepare the body for getting treatment and support for long-term opioid addiction. It is important to note that Suboxone® (buprenorphine) is one of the most proven and most effective therapies for decreasing the patient’s cravings for opioids. And unlike Methadone, this particular drug can be prescribed in a doctor’s office and allows their staff to prepare the patient for one-on-one therapy and various techniques for daily recovery.
Their Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is supervised by physicians, certified counselors, care coordinators, peer recovery specialists, and licensed therapists. They will oversee each individualized program at every step of the way.
Founded in 2018, ReVIDA Recovery serves as a comprehensive behavioral healthcare company that integrates MAT into the treatment they provide for opioid use disorder. They aim to empower every patient to allow them to get back the life they once had, or improve their lives for their future. The ReVIDA Recovery® team is always ready to stand with the patient to help reclaim their quality of life. As such, the goals, health, and support for the patients are their first priority.
