The first opioid treatment medication approved for this use, buprenorphine can be prescribed by a medical provider and filled at any pharmacy offering flexibility and freedom from daily program visits.


A long acting medication, a once daily dose prevents cravings and withdrawals for 24 hours or more.

As patients stabilize, physicians may reduce the dosing to every other day.
Overdose on Suboxone is unlikely if patients take the medication as prescribed, following all safety precautions and drug interaction warnings. Suboxone compounds with naloxone act as effective deterrents to misuse.
