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.
