Suboxone/Zubsolv (Buprenorphine) is a medication that is used to treat opioid addiction. Approved by the FDA in 2002, Suboxone became the first drug to treat opioid addiction in an office setting and represents the latest advance in medication-assisted treatment. Suboxone can be dispensed for home use by prescription (pill or film form). It is becoming the preferred method to treat opioid addiction because of its pharmacological and safety profile. Suboxone is different than other opioids. As a partial “opioid agonist,” it leads to less euphoria and physical dependence, lower potential for misuse, and has a ceiling effect which prevents overdose. It also has a milder withdrawal profile. Suboxone is a part of a complete treatment program that also includes counseling and behavioral health services.
