What should I do in case of emergency, for those maintained on buprenorphine?

We never know what could happen. What if there is an emergency and you need to be treated for pain? Worse yet what if you are unconscious? A potential problem is you could be unnecessarily under-treated for pain. Since many doctors out there are still unfamiliar with buprenorphine, Alpha Healing Center will provide you with a buprenorphine card that lists the name and phone number of the prescribing doctor and a patient information brochure. Keep this in a wallet or folder just in case of emergency. Hopefully it will never be needed.
