The Need For Suboxone Doctors in Wyoming

In 2017, according to DrugAbuse.gov, medical practices in the state of Wyoming wrote an average of 64.8 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons. That’s above the national average. This means that there are more opioids per person in Wyoming than in most states in the Union.
In 2017, the United States saw 47,600 opioid-related overdose deaths. Wyoming had an average of 12.2 overdose related deaths per 100,000 people.

Suboxone, also known by its generic names buprenorphine and naloxone, is the leading medical treatment for opioid addiction. Treatment for opioids is difficult. Withdrawal from opioids can pose serious medical risks and medications like suboxone help individuals ease their way off of harder opioids. We are proud to be able to prescribe Suboxone for individuals looking to incorporate this medication into their addiction recovery program. There is a major concern about Suboxone availability.
