This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely available through Suboxone doctors in Kodiak, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

This limited access to MAT for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still strict regulations for these doctors that limit treatment. This includes the number of patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
