Can any doctor prescribe Suboxone?

Until recently, Suboxone could only be prescribed by a doctor who had completed a “waiver training.” However, the government has long been receiving a lot of pressure to make Suboxone more readily available for those that need treatment, which means expanding access to the number of providers that can prescribe Suboxone without additional licensing or training.

In January of 2021, the Department of Health and Human Services eliminated the waiver for Suboxone, meaning that all prescribers that currently prescribe controlled Substances can now prescribe Suboxone as well. However, certain providers may or may not feel comfortable doing so if they are new to Suboxone prescribing.
