NIMBY DISCOVERS BUPRENORPHINE:

From Johnson City Press (Tenn.), 16 April, a report of community outrage over a "clinic" where buprenorphine is prescribed for opiate dependence. The article notes that City Code restrictions have long governed establishment and operation of programs treating patients with methadone, but "Suboxone is an especially difficult narcotic for municipalities to regulate, as any licensed physician may prescribe it." Obviously, the fear and loathing that NIMBY reflects are directed at the patients receiving care; the particular medication that's provided is irrelevant!

True, any doctor can perscribe it but it is not approved by the FDA for pain meds, I beleive, and the dr. needs a special liscense to treat patients for addiction. I have been on it for awhile and would recommend it to anyone, whether for addiction or pain, as my case. Too bad this med is making its way to the streets VIA clinical trials and prescriptions.
