Can I be in a Suboxone treatment program when pregnant?

Yes, but the type of buprenorphine may be changed. Buprenorphine has been clinically proven to be safe during pregnancy, but the other ingredient (Naloxone) has not. It does not mean that it will be harmful during pregnancy, but that there has not been any research that says it will be harmful or not. Typically, women whom are part of our program and become pregnant will be switched to a mono-therapy of only buprenorphine without Naloxone. You and your Brightside physician will decide what is best for you.
