Should Buprenorphine Be Deregulated?
Nearly all physicians are allowed to prescribe opioids, but in order to prescribe buprenorphine, they must undergo 8 hours of training. In the past, buprenorphine has been highly regulated due to fears that it may be misused, but a group of public health directors, physicians, and a member of Congress are pushing to deregulate the drug in an effort to increase access to addiction care. Are you for or against deregulating buprenorphine?
