Frequently Asked Questions

Is buprenorphine treatment just replacing one addiction for another?

No. FDA-approved buprenorphine medications, like Suboxone, Zubsolv, and Sublocade, are combined with naloxone, which decreases the potential for dependency and misuse. When recommended and integrated with behavioral counseling and available support programs, buprenorphine will relieve opioid cravings and reduce the likelihood of relapse.

What are common buprenorphine side effects?

The common side effects include, but are not limited to, headache, mild dizziness, difficulty concentrating, stomach pain, digestive issues, insomnia or drowsiness, numbness or tingling, or vomiting.

How does medical cannabis alleviate pain?

Cannabis, when properly recommended and used, can ease pain without causing deleterious effects on the body. The analgesic properties of cannabis are experienced by patients with debilitating conditions, such as fibromyalgia, cancer, AIDS, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.

What role does nutrition play in treating chronic pain or addiction?

People suffering from chronic pain and addiction can experience nutritional deficiencies. Proper nutrition is medically beneficial and helps improve one’s health and well-being.
