Imagine Nothing: Eagle HealthWorks Offers Taper Off Opioid Medication Option

Safely Taper Off Prescribed Opioid Treatment Medications for Those Seeking Abstinence

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (May 24, 2022) – Drug overdose is the leading cause of unintentional death in the United States, and prescription medications containing buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Sublocade, and the like) have played a huge role in decreasing these staggering numbers. While many have used medication assisted treatment to regain control of their lives, there are some who are ready to become free of all opioid-based medications but are not sure how to go about it. This is why Eagle HealthWorks created its Taper Off Opioids Medication option.

Licensed chemical dependency counselor, Dennis Eagleeye states, “Some people believe buprenorphine is a lifetime treatment, but that is untrue. This option helps motivated patients become free from all opioids and have more control of their lives”. Some patients choose abstinence whereas others may be legally or professionally mandated. Either way, a controlled taper is a very real and positive plan that can be done without the negative effects of withdrawal (What is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?).

Eagle HealthWorks also seeks to partner with local law enforcement agencies to help people comply with court orders and probation expectations while having the greatest opportunity for success. Together with regular counseling, drug screens, and post-taper naltrexone (Vivitrol), our Taper Off Opioid Medication option reduces medications safely over a 30-day period in an outpatient setting.

Eagle HealthWorks accepts Medicaid, Medicare, and self-pay, and most patients can start treatment the same day. We can be contacted at (740) 242.2300 in Thornville, (740) 685.0016 in Byesville, toll free at (888) 426.9536, text to (740) 685.0016, email at, website, or Facebook.
