Buprenorphine (or "Bupe") is a medication that treats addiction to opioids, including heroin and prescription painkillers.
Buprenorphine treatment is available at Brightpoint Health. Schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider to discuss if it is a good match for you.
Bupe stops withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This makes it easier for you to stop using or cut down, so you can focus on other things that are important to you. Suboxone® is a common brand name for Bupe.
Treatment for substance use with medication is often not enough on its own. We offer additional support for people struggling with their substance use through our primary care, behavioral health, and substance use staff. At your first appointment, we can assess what extra support you need and connect you to care.
