“I have noted with great concern the explosion of prescription opiate drug abuse in south Florida and subsequently the number of addicted and disfunctional persons who suffer from this terrible disorder. My practice is oriented towards substitution of Suboxone for prescription opiates. You will receive careful monitoring and medical management with individual evaluation, urine screening, program and group referrals with a reasonable tapering of the Suboxone over a period of weeks or months in accordance with federal oversight guidelines.
