This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is solely available through Suboxone doctors in Chatanika, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to individuals addicted to opioids and are seeking help.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to medication managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still strict regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to the number of patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
