Some patients who have addiction issues also suffer from chronic pain. We can often treat patients with who combine the problems of chronic pain and a tendency toward abuse of medications with Suboxone. At The Helm Center, Suboxone is used for pain management and for the office-based treatment of opioid addiction. In some cases, we also use it as your regular pain medicine.
Suboxone, Subutex, and Zubsolv, amongst others, are exciting new drugs designed to aid in the outpatient detoxification from opioids. We are pleased to be able to offer this service. Suboxone, which contains both a painkiller and a medicine that counteracts the painkiller if it is injected, can stop a craving but cannot be abused. It provides a powerful tool for outpatient detoxification.
As a pain management clinic, The Helm Center can only, under federal law, have 275 patients at any one time who are being detoxified from opioids by Suboxone. Where the services of an addictionologist or for inpatient detoxification are required, we will gladly make the appropriate referrals to excellent specialists and facilities.
At The Helm Center, Dr. Helm and associates will use contemporary techniques in medication management and pain therapy to diagnose and treat your pain. If you live in the Laguna Hills or greater Orange County area, call today to schedule your consultation with one of our specialists.
