Opioids attach to the receptor sites of the brain and these receptors bind endorphins that are released by neurons when you experience trauma, rewarding behaviors, and more. Endorphine pathways are for elevating your mood, reducing the sense of pain, and having an impact on urine production, immune functions, and intestinal motility, and more.

When you have greater opioid stimuli than your tolerance, the opioid tone is increased. The opioid tone is a certain baseline activity for the endorphin pathways. But when one experiences a decrease in opioid stimulation, you will experience withdrawal symptoms.

The recovery process aims at bringing back the normal opioid tolerance. Some people take many methods to get rid of opioid dependence. But you need a doctor for your treatment. When you are taking medicine alone, there is a high chance that you get back to the addiction.

Products designed for opioid detox have a lower impact on the substance you take. Sometimes, these medicines can increase the clearance rate, causing higher withdrawal symptoms for your health.

When you take opioids for a prolonged period, it brings changes in the opioid receptor. If you are dependent on opioids, it takes 2-3 months for the recovery.

When you reduce the buprenorphine dose, it also reduces the amount of buprenorphine at the receptor sites. In this case, the opioid tone goes down below the normal level. It takes nearly 2 to 3 months to stabilize the situation.

If you discontinue buprenorphine sudden, it drops down at a very low level and it causes serious and severe withdrawal symptoms. Our doctors decrease the dose level slowly so that the changes will occur at a slower pace.
