Sublocade is a subcutaneous injection administered in the abdominal region. It is injected as a liquid. After the injection, Sublocade changes to a solid form called a depot which will slowly release the medication.
Patients who are currently being treated for opioid addiction with oral Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Subutex) are eligible. As part of a comprehensive Pharmacotherapy Program, Sublocade patients will be required to regularly attend Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and submit to routine oral fluid toxicology tests during each office visit.
