Life Line Services is one of the few addiction treatment centers offering Micro-dose Initiation. This is the newest, state of the the art method of Suboxone initiation. Using a micro-dosing technique for starting Suboxone offers several advantages. Micro-dosing allows for a more gradual and controlled transition from full opioid agonists, such as Fentanyl or Oxycontin, to Suboxone. This method involves starting with very small doses of Suboxone and gradually increasing the dosage over several days while the patient continues taking their usual dose of opioids. After five to seven days, the patients’ opioid receptors will be fully occupied by the Suboxone. At that point, the patient’s usual opioid can be discontinued, usually without causing any symptoms of withdrawal. Unlike the traditional method of Suboxone Initiation used by most clinics, Micro-dose Initiation eliminates the need to be in withdrawal prior to starting the Suboxone. It also reduces the risk of precipitated withdrawal, a sudden and intense withdrawal syndrome that can occur when Suboxone is administered too soon or at too high of a dose.
Micro-dosing provides a smoother and more comfortable initiation process. It allows individuals to adjust to the effects of Suboxone gradually, reducing the intensity of potential side effects and withdrawal symptoms. This improves overall tolerability and decreases the chance the patient will abandon treatment and go back to using.
We at Life Line Services a personalized approach to treatment. Each individual may have a unique sensitivity to Suboxone and varying levels of opioid dependence. Micro-dose Initiation allows for individualized adjustments, maximizing the benefits while minimizing the potential for side effects.
Micro-Dose Initiation involves administering very low doses of Suboxone during the initiation phase, which can help prevent withdrawal symptoms and provide a smoother initiation process. With Micro-Dose Initiation, the dose of Suboxone is gradually increase over a 5-7 day period while the patient usual opioid is continued. By the seventh day they will be off their usual opioid and on full therapeutic doses of Suboxone, with minimal to no withdrawal. This approach aims to achieve similar benefits as standard treatment but with fewer withdrawal symptoms and a more gradual transition towards full daily doses of Suboxone.
Some benefits of Micro-Dose Induction include reduced withdrawal symptoms, minimized cravings, and a more gradual weaning off the medication. It can also help individuals maintain a clearer mental state and continue with daily activities while working towards recovery.
Micro-Dose Initiation is often recommended for individuals with opioid use disorder who are motivated to overcome their addiction but want to avoid having to experience withdrawal prior to starting Suboxone. A healthcare provider will assess your medical history and addiction severity to determine if Micro-Dose Induction is a suitable option for you.
Micro-Dose Initiation typically takes 5 to 7 days. The treatment plan is personalized for each patient and the initiation phase may take longer in certain patients.
Micro-Dose Initiation is generally considered better for most individuals because it gradually eliminates withdrawal symptoms. This helps reduce the risk of relapse or dropping out of treatment while still providing effective support during the initiation process.
