I have always understood that buprenorphine per se is very difficult to obtain in the U.S., and that "buprenorphine" clinics are actually dispensing Suboxone, which is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. The drug reactions are immensely different depending on mode of ingestion. Suboxone has reduced opioid effect when injected iv, because it is counterbalanced by the naloxone. For this reason it is absolutely necessary to specify both the actual drug used, and the mode of ingestion.

If, in fact, the original article discussed these issues, then it is incumbant on BasisOnline to modify its discussion.
