Back to Suboxone FAQs

Is it legal to get a Suboxone prescription online?

Yes, it is legal to access medication-assisted treatment (MAT) via an authorized telemedicine addictions treatment organization, like Bicycle Health. There are numerous telemedicine laws that regulate virtual/online treatment, particularly as it applies to controlled substances like buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone).

Telemedicine treatment for opioid use disorder requires regular videoconferencing visits with medical providers, as well as health coaching, online support groups, and urine drug screen requirements. Telemedicine benefits include the opportunity for patients to track their symptoms and how they’re feeling throughout each day, with that information then instantly sent to their medical providers, allowing clinicians to provide the highest level of support to patients in-the-moment. 

And further, this type of ongoing tracking and surveying throughout each day allows providers more insight into what might trigger a patient’s cravings, thereby allowing for a more specialized treatment plan. Virtual health also provides patients the opportunity to attend online support groups, which adds an extra layer of accountability and community support.
