There are ongoing efforts to eliminate the cap on treating people for opioid dependence with buprenorphine or Suboxone. I don’t know what the odds of success are, but the efforts would benefit from public demand. If you have had difficulty finding a doctor with room under the cap, write a letter or email that explains just how important the issue is to you, and send it to the address(es) below.
The change requires an Act of Congress, or perhaps an executive order from someone high-placed in the Dept of Health and Human Services. Consider sending a ‘cc’ to your elected representatives in the Senate or House of Representatives. I am not excited about using NAABT.org, since they tend to be patsies for Reckitt-Benckiser (I’ve asked to have a link to this blog, or to our 6000-member forum on their web page, but they won’t– but they link to an R-B – supported forum instead– draw your own conclusions). But this issue is too important even for my own righteous anger to get in the way!
