Expanding access to medication-assisted treatment with buprenorphine is a cornerstone of the opioid crisis response; yet, buprenorphine remains underutilized.

A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors.
