Learn How To Get Free Suboxone, Free Doctor Visit, Free Therapy.
Free Suboxone is available everywhere if you need it. The company that makes Suboxone, Indivior, previously had an assistance program. Each doctor could have up to three patients enrolled. While the Indivior program no longer exists, Orexo, the maker of ZubSolv, continues to offer a similar patient assistance program. Orexo also has a voucher program that allows patients to get up to 30 free tablets without applying for patient assistance. Here is an article about how to get free opioid addiction treatment medication. But what if you can’t afford the doctor?
Pilot programs are leading the way.
While you will not find these one-stop-shops everywhere yet, I believe that they will soon spread quickly. We need more of these programs because it is so important that everyone has access to treatment. New pilot programs are leading the way in showing us that it is possible.
It starts in the ER.
At Yale-New Haven Hospital, there is a program that provides complete care, including Suboxone, to patients, regardless of income. The key is to start treatment in the hospital emergency room. NPR has featured this new trend of ER initiated addiction treatment. Furthermore, a randomized clinical trial, published in JAMA, has demonstrated that patients do better when treatment starts in the ER.
Where else can I find free treatment?
The Palm Beach Post has featured a program in Palm Beach County based on the Yale-New Haven Hospital program. Patients presenting to the JFK Medical Center ER who need opiate or opioid addiction treatment can start treatment right away. The addiction treatment program for heroin and other opioids provides complete treatment, including free Suboxone, doctor visits, and psychotherapy.
Are there any other programs?
There is another program at Singing River Services in Gautier, Mississippi, serving residents of that region. Singing River provides free doctor visits, free Suboxone, and therapy as well.

Here, I have listed three free programs in Florida, Mississippi, and Connecticut. So, what about the rest of the country? If you know of similar pilot programs in other cities or counties, please let us know! We will make this information available here and on our map-linked state-by-state listings.
