Abstract

Problem: Patients on Suboxone (buprenorphine-naloxone) therapy break compliance by taking higher Suboxone doses, by supplementing with Suboxone purchased illicitly (“off the street”), or by taking other opiates and illicit drugs (cocaine), excluding marijuana. Need: Physicians and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) counselors would benefit from an approach to counseling and treating their patients that would better address the specific vulnerabilities that Suboxone patients face that threaten their compliance.
