Buprenorphine (Suboxone)

From the 1960s until the year 2000, methadone was the primary option for people seeking narcotic replacement therapy to minimize withdrawal symptoms. In 2000, buprenorphine became the first narcotic drug that could be prescribed by certified physicians for the treatment of opioid dependence under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act. Unlike methadone, which is classified as a Schedule II substance under the Controlled Substances Act, buprenorphine is classified as a Schedule III substance, which means that its potential for abuse is lower than methadone.
