When was Suboxone released?

Suboxone was officially approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for opioid use disorder in 2002. The FDA is the governing body responsible for ensuring the safety and efficacy of all prescription drugs in the United States. 

Developed in the 1960s as a partial opioid, Suboxone was not used as a treatment for opioid use disorder for a long time after that. The FDA started studying Suboxone as a potential treatment for opioid use disorder in the early nineties.
