Sublocade (Buprenorphine extended-release) is a prescription medication used to treat individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD). Sublocade is given once monthly by injection and must be administered by a trained licensed medical professional. Sublocade contains Buprenorphine which is known as a partial opioid agonist, which means it allows for activation of the opioid receptors in the brain but less strongly than the opioid itself. Prior to starting the Sublocade injection, one must begin treatment with an oral form of Buprenorphine such as Suboxone or Subutex. At Harmony Bay Wellness, Sublocade is prescribed, monitored, and administered by a licensed medical professional. Sublocade assisted treatment, in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapy services in NJ, can greatly reduce relapse and improve sustained recovery.
