Dear Abiggervision,
Your Family doc can prescribe suboxone if they have completed the (I believe it is 15 hour) course.

Only if your doctor is certified to do so.  I know here in PA all doctors have to be certified in suboxone and there is a limit as to how many doctors can prescribe it.

Doctors need a special permit to perscibe it , but its worth asking...Usually your PCP does not have that ability but you never know...Check out the Suboxen website it has a link where you can find doctors who do in your area...Ive been on it for a year, AND IT SAVED MY LIFE!!!
