Can my family doctor prescribe Suboxone?

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO; the licensing authority for all medical doctors in Ontario) has made recommendations for which doctors should prescribe Suboxone. The CPSO recommends that to prescribe Suboxone a doctor should:

  • have taken a specific Suboxone training course,

  • have experience in treating opiate addiction,

  • take continuing medial education in the treatment of opiate addiction, and

  • in most cases should probably be methadone prescribers so that patients may be offered a choice

The doctors at BMC meet all these requirements for Suboxone treatment.
