Drug of Abuse: Buprenorphine


Buprenorphine is a Schedule III controlled substance, it is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from thebaine, a component of opium. It has a longer duration of action than morphine when used for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It can also be used for treating opioid dependence. Buprenorphine carries a lower risk of abuse and addiction compared to a full opioid. However, it has also been shown that buprenorphine does have abuse potential and may itself cause dependency.
