Nashville’s suboxone doctors are not very spread out. If you can visit one downtown but it does not work out well for you, chances are you can walk to any of the others.

Almost all of them are within a block of Charlotte Avenue. The one furthest west is at the intersection of Charlotte and 46th Avenue, but most are between I-440 and I-40. The Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital is surrounded by suboxone friendly doctors.

There are a couple north of the Tennessee State Capitol, between Jefferson Street and the First Tennessee Park.

About Opioid abuse and addiction

Opioid abuse can be a serious problem for too many people. Whether the addiction comes from prescribed painkillers or abusing recreational drugs such as heroine, quitting any opiate is a difficult task.

Thankfully, you no longer have to go to a federally controlled methadone clinic to seek assistance in cleansing yourself of an opioid addiction. This is good if you want to stay under the federal radar, or if you want to avoid the potentially harsh side effects of methadone.

The Drug Addiction Treatment Act in the year 2000 allowed physicians to prescribe narcotic drugs to help treat opioid addiction. Suboxone was the first such drug legalized, in 2002.

Suboxone is much more effective in relieving opioid dependency than trying to quit cold turkey and has friendlier side effects than methadone.

What is Suboxone?

The medication known as Suboxone is a combination of two drugs, buprenorphine and naloxone. The two drugs work together to alleviate the withdrawal symptoms commonly seen by opiate users and allow the user to wean themselves off dangerous drug use, while being designed to prevent abuse.

Without the assistance of a medication, only 25 percent of people addicted to opiates manage to go for a year without relapsing. By using Suboxone, the chances of success improve, potentially hitting 60%, provided the person in question is on board with fighting the addiction and trying to change their behavior and environment.

Suboxone is available as both a sublingual tablet and as a filmstrip. The first is held under the tongue while it dissolves into the blood vessels located there. The filmstrip is used in a similar fashion, but resembles a postage stamp that completely dissolves in your mouth.

The Role of Buprenorphine

The main workhorse of the drug, buprenorphine is an opioid. Specifically, it is a partial opioid agonist. Unlike full opioid agonists like morphine and oxycodone, it does not cause euphoria when taken according to directions, but some people report that it makes them feel normal.

It also has a partial painkiller effect on its own, so you can think of buprenorphine as an opioid drug with the nasty parts cut off.

Buprenorphine still triggers the part of the brain that thinks it is receiving an opioid dose, and in this way the drug prevents withdrawal symptoms from occurring. Because the medication stays attached to the opioid receptors for up to 24 hours, it blocks other opiate drugs from causing their high.

The Role of Naloxone

Naloxone is an opioid antagonist, so it clears out any drug currently attached to the opioid receptors. This drug is included in Suboxone to prevent abuse of the medication. When taken orally the naloxone has no effect. But when injected or snorted, naloxone removes the high instead of providing one.

This does have the effect of immediately kickstarting withdrawal symptoms, which further discourages abuse.

Conclusion

If you live near or in Nashville, Tennessee, and feel the need to escape from an opioid addiction, there is hope. Suboxone can provide the medical assistance necessary to wean yourself off opiates, and there are plenty of doctors to choose from.
