Dangers of Suboxone Abuse
Addiction is a very complicated condition that involves a kind of rewiring of the brain. The brain creates a reward system associated with using the substance, so that certain triggers or perceived need instigates the urge to use as a perceived solution. While happens to some degree with all habits, it gets wildly out of hand when it happens with drugs or alcohol.
The reward system associated with the drug will begin to supersede other genuine concerns and interests of the person who is suffering from addiction. In this way, addiction hijacks a person’s decision making and prioritization abilities. Opposed to what many people believe, this does not happen solely with illicit drugs; it can happen with a prescription medication like Suboxone even if the person has been prescribed it.
Many people who abuse Suboxone begin to do so because they think it is good for them, as it helps them stay away from Heroin, Meth and other drugs. If used correctly, Suboxone can be a great medication to help with withdrawal symptoms, but there are various health risks that come with abusing it.
