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 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).

Buprenorphine.US is an information resource for people in search of doctors who specialize in treating opioid addiction with buprenorphine. In recent years, individuals from all age groups and backgrounds have suffered with an unexpected opioid dependency that negatively affected their family relationships, job, finances, and self-esteem. Addiction is a relentless illness, and persistent opiate withdrawal is a particularly difficult medical dilemma. There are presently thousands of U.S. physicians seeking to assist patients ready to address their opioid addiction. Buprenorphine.US is a tool for connecting buprenorphine doctors with new prospective patients wanting specialized primary care for their addictive disorder.
