In the last year of my IM residency, we received training to apply for a buprenorphine waiver. It's my understanding that there's good evidence that better and faster access to opioid-agonist therapy helps with treatment retention and preventing harms. However, I personally still feel very hesitant to prescribe Suboxone. I wonder if the experts could comment on what we can do to make this a safe and more widespread practice to help patients. Unfortunately, even during my short experience as a resident PCP, I had a patient relapse while waiting for his first appointment with an addiction specialist to start Suboxone.
