Let Us Guide You in Your Journey Towards Recovery

CARE Clinic helps patients recover from substance abuse and become productive members of society. No matter what kind of opioid drug you are addicted to (pain pills, morphine, heroin, etc), we will help you. Call us now to start your journey towards recovery.

What Are Opioids?

Opioids include:

  • Heroin
  • Codeine (like Tylenol #3 and #4)
  • Hydrocodone (like Lortab, Vicodin)
  • Oxycodone  (like Percocet, Oxycontin)
  • Meperidine (Demerol)
  • Morphine (like MS Contin)
  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid)
  • Methadone
  • Fentanyl
  • Nalbuphine (Nubain)
  • Tramadol (Ultram)
  • Tapentadol (Nucynta)

Why is Opioid Use a Problem?

Opioids are very addictive substances which provide pain relief by acting on opioid receptors in the brain and body. People can legally get access to these medications by getting a prescription from their physician for pain or illegally get access to these drugs by buying pain pills off the streets or by using heroin. Because opioids are addictive, people can overdose on them and die. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), "over 81,000 drug overdose deaths in the 12 months ending in May 2020, the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded." At the same time, deaths from drug overdose in Mississippi rose by 26%, per the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting (01/25/2021). Not only do people addicted to opioids cause tremendous damage to their body/mind, but this addiction also has devastating effects on their family (including any unborn child), on their finances, and on their professional career. Many people will lose everything before they seek help.

How does CARE Clinic Treat Opioid Addiction?

We Use One of the Following Medications to Treat Opioid Addiction:

      • Suboxone (consists of Buprenorphine + Naloxone) is a tablet/film which dissolves underneath the tongue
      • Zubsolv (consists of Buprenorphine + Naloxone) comes in tablet form and dissolves underneath the tongue
      • Bunavail (consists of Buprenorphine + Naloxone) comes in film form and dissolves in the cheek area inside the mouth
      • Subutex (consists of Buprenorphine only) is a tablet/film which dissolves underneath the tongue. Generally, it is used in pregnant or breast-feeding patients
      • Sublocade (consists of Buprenorphine only) is injected once-a-month subcutaneously in the abdomen
      • Probuphine (consists of Buprenorphine only) is subdermally implanted into the arm once every 6 months
      • Vivitrol (consist of Naltrexone only) is injected once-a-month intramuscularly

If I am already on Methadone, can CARE Clinic start me on Buprenorphine (Suboxone)?

Even though Methadone has been the main treatment for opioid addiction since the 1960s, many Methadone patients dislike going to clinic every morning in order to get their daily Methadone dose. Also they cannot just stop taking Methadone because the withdrawal symptoms are severe and long-lasting. Life will therefore revolve around Methadone and many feel trapped. 

CARE Clinic has successfully taken patients off Methadone in an outpatient setting. This allows for a smooth transition to Suboxone where patients only have monthly clinic visits (NOT the daily Methadone visits) and can truly enjoy life while being treated for opioid addiction.

How Do Buprenorphine/Naloxone/Naltrexone Work and Can I Become Addicted to Any of Them?

Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist (i.e. activates opioid receptors but only partially, not fully like opioids). Naloxone/Naltrexone are opioid antagonists (i.e. block opioid receptors from being activated). Even though Buprenorphine works on the same receptors in the brain that are normally activated by opioids, it is a partial agonist so it does not create the euphoric high nor the withdrawal symptoms which are normally associated with opioids. As a result, people on Buprenorphine can live a normal, healthy life.

Will Buprenorphine (Suboxone) Show Up on a Drug Screen at my Job?

On a normal drug screen, Buprenorphine (Suboxone) will NOT be detected. In order to detect Buprenorphine (Suboxone), special tests will have to be done. If you are a patient at CARE Clinic and the drug screen at your job is positive for Buprenorphine (Suboxone), our clinic will provide documentation to your job (with your written permission) that you are in our licensed medication-assisted treatment program and under the care of our qualified medical physician.

We Use the Following Non-Medication Therapies to Treat Opioid Addiction:

We are currently setting up counseling sessions (both individual and group format) for psychological support at CARE Clinic. Currently, we provide all patients with a list of such programs which are available throughout Mississippi. If a patient prefers virtual counseling, we also provide a list for such services. We at CARE Clinic believe that counseling is paramount to changing the biopsychosocial aspects of addiction and we strongly encourage all patients to participate in such sessions.
