About Cousins Island, ME Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat people in Cousins Island, ME who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Cousins Island, ME who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to patients addicted to opioids and are seeking help.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most frequently used medication used for opioid addiction management, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still many rules and 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.
