Buprenorphine is the medication ingredient in Suboxone, Subutex, Zubsolv, Bunavail, and Probuphine that specifically targets opioid withdrawal. Buprenorphine, or “Bup”, is the leading pharmaceutical treatment (alongside methadone) for addressing opioid addiction. Both medications are in widescale use throughout the world due to their efficacy in removing the persistent discomfort associated with withdrawal from opiates (ex. runny nose, body ache, anxiety, nausea, diarrhea and other symptoms).

The Drug Treatment Act of 2000 permitted doctors who meet certain training qualifications to prescribe buprenorphine in the treatment of heroin addiction and other opioid addictions. Buprenorphine physicians became able to assist opioid addicted patients in an office setting bypassing the restrictions that typically apply to patients receiving methadone. This treatment method maximized patient convenience and accessibility thus increasing the number of people who could access medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction.

Buprenorphine.US is a national directory of approved buprenorphine physicians many of which specifically utilize Suboxone. Suboxone is presently the most popular buprenorphine-based medication prescribed around the world. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, and comes available as a thin film that is placed under the tongue once per day where it is quickly dissolved and absorbed into the bloodstream.
