If, for whatever reason, you have developed an opiate dependency problem, this may be an excellent time for you to quit. Suboxone is gaining popularity as a medical, office-based opioid dependency treatment program.
Fewer than 3% of US physicians are certified to prescribe Suboxone. Most of those certified are psychiatrists. In our area, very few internists, like myself, are Suboxone-certified.
You can find Suboxone-certified physicians at http://www.suboxone.com/, and you can try to match up with one by email at http://www.treatmentmatch.org/local/.
