BL Says:


"NPs and PAs who complete the required training and seek to prescribe buprenorphine for up to 30 patients will be able to apply to do so beginning in early 2017. Previously, only physicians could prescribe buprenorphine. Once NP's and PA's receive their waiver they can begin prescribing buprenorphine immediately."

I saw that they are now able to do the training to be able to write for Buprenorphine. Where I live, we have the option of 2 or 3 Buprenorphine doctors that are all 30+ miles away. I live in a small town that is absolutely consumed with drugs, nearly everyone here is on some type of opiate and there simply aren't enough spots in the treatment facilities for all of these people. I wish some of our local PAs,NPs and DRs would become eligible to prescribe Buprenorphine, it's just outrageous.

AWV304 , it does not take a lot ot be able to prescribe. Someone being prescribed opiates does not mean they are addicts. It is rare for a person that is prescribed opiates for chronic pain to become psychologically addicted.
