Doctors currently require a special license (called a Suboxone “waiver”) to prescribe buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) (although this may change over time). Therefore, not all doctors can prescribe Suboxone. If you have a primary care doctor or a psychiatrist, ask them if they prescribe Suboxone, and if not, if they can help refer you to someone who does. Many hospital systems have a special department for addiction services where you can be connected to a doctor with experience prescribing Suboxone. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor about Suboxone - doctors are used to working with patients with substance use disorders. Even if your doctor does not personally prescribe Suboxone, they should still be able to help you find a doctor who does. It is part of our job to connect you to care!
