Do you test for buprenorphine or suboxone?
Yes, we test for buprenorphine and suboxone. Urine testing is a highly valuable means of detecting illicit drug use, whether a relapse or the start of alternate substance abuse. Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic. Naloxone is a special narcotic drug that reverses the effects of other narcotic medicines. Suboxone is used to treat narcotic (opiate) addiction. It is not for use as a pain medication.
Suboxone is often sold by addicts so they can buy heroin. These are both highly addictive dangerous drugs.
