Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) is highly common for Suboxone and can last for months. The Nova Vitae Treatment Center carries effective treatment methods for detoxification from Suboxone. Accelerated Detox can be successful for patients who have even had large doses of the drug. This treatment can be performed over a week. After successful detoxification, a Naltrexone implant can be provided to assist in recovery.

Naltrexone implants influence the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce cravings and potential withdrawal symptoms. They last for six to twelve weeks, providing patients enough time to be permanently free from the use of Suboxone.
