The National Alliance of Advocates
for Buprenorphine Treatment

Buprenorphine (Suboxone®, Subutex®3, Zubsolv®4, Bunavail™5, Probuphine®6) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction in the privacy of a physician's office.1 Buprenorphine can be dispensed for take-home use, by prescription.1 This, in addition to the pharmacological and safety profile of buprenorphine, makes it an attractive treatment for patients addicted to opioids.2

About Us

DonateThe National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment is a non-profit organization charged with the mission to:

  • Educate the public about the disease of opioid addiction and the buprenorphine treatment option.
  • Help reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with patients with addiction disorders.

We incorporated as a non-profit corporation in Connecticut April 1, 2005. We have 501(c)3 tax exempt status with the IRS as a charitable organization. Any donations are tax deductible for the year in which the donation was made.

Voluntary Discloser:
Funding for this organization is provided by anonymous donors whose lives were touched by evidence-based addiction treatment and were willing to contribute to the cause. NAABT, Inc. has also asked for and received donations from pharmaceutical companies in the form of  “Unrestricted Educational Grants.” The grants were “unrestricted” so that there were no “strings” attached. NAABT, Inc. has complete control over how funds are used, there are no restrictions on the content or mission of this site. Donors have no control over the content of the site or NAABT’s activities, unless specifically noted. NAABT, Inc. is solely responsible for all of its activities. We provide a source for educational information, plus a tool for helping patients connect with physicians.

We will strive to remain a non biased, reputable, and accurate source for those seeking information on evidence-based addiction treatments. Buprenorphine is not a cure nor a miracle medication, but a new and effective tool in fighting opioid addiction. Medication is only a small part of a comprehensive recovery plan.

We at NAABT wish you and your loved ones the very best in treatment and in life. Let us know if we can help you further.
