  1. Once you get out of the menu, you will see all the places that prescribe Suboxone. Sometimes, the information on this website is wrong. You need to call each place and make sure they do these things.

8. Ask these questions when you call the Suboxone Clinic

  1. Is this an outpatient facility? (An outpatient facility means that you go there, then you go home. You do not stay overnight. Inpatient is where you stay overnight.)
  2. Is Suboxone prescribed here?
  3. Do you accept patients Medicaid for Suboxone?
  4. How much will this cost? I have Medicaid.
  5. When is your soonest availability?
  6. Is there anything else I should know before my visit?

9. Conclusion and Free Help

Suboxone can be hard to get. The government runs a hotline that you can call any day at any time. Their phone number is 800-662-4357. They can help you find a treatment center. It is free, confidential, and available 24/7. If you need help right now, you can call them.
