Buprenorphine

Medication-assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) with Buprenorphine

Opioid addiction has emerged as a severe challenge for our society. But fortunately, treatment of opioid use disorder or OUD is now possible with the help f modern medical developments. In fact, Buprenorphine is known to be an effective treatment solution for OUD.


Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid that acts as an alternative to actual opioid and stimulates the opioid receptor cells, thus preventing actual opioid abuse. The administration of Buprenorphine falls under the advanced medication-assisted treatment of Recovery Connection and is prescribed only under strict guidelines. Using Buprenorphine in treating OUD is a part of the opioid substitution treatment methodology and is often implemented in conjunction with an integrated recovery plan.

How does Buprenorphine treatment work?

Since the administration of Buprenorphine requires strict guidelines & prescriptions, it is controlled only by certified doctors to prevent misuse & side effects. However, depending on the severity and individual conditions, the medication can be prescribed in multiple ways, including injections, skin patches, or implants. A more common way of ingesting Buprenorphine is placing it under the tongue or in the cheek and keeping it there until it dissolves.
