I think if it's something that concerns you, it would be a good idea. I keep the ID card that I got from my doctor in my wallet, just in case. But other than that it doesn't cross my mind too much. Others have mentioned getting ID bracelet's or necklaces made. Anything that would give you peace of mind is a good thing in my book. We sure don't need anything else to worry about!

That's a really fine idea! For the reply above, did you just ask your Dr for an ID card? I see mine tomorrow and would just like to know. Thanks!

Yes Goat,

He gave me the card on the first day of treatment inside the welcome package. But I'll bet your doctor has them if they didn't give you one already. Just ask for one. If not, they can probably get one with no problems.

If you have yet to get an ID card, or for anybody else interested, I ordered mine, for free!, from NAABT website. It came with a couple brochures which are very handy for explaining to somebody how suboxone works, why addiction is a disease and suboxone treats it. Don't recall if I ordered the brochures separate but all that stuff, and other info can be found on their website, in addition to the ID notification cards for emergency and healthcare workers. Out your name and emergency contact info, as well as doctors name on it, and on one side it contains info about what suboxone is ands its relevance to an emergency situation or emergency treatment. I think anybody on maintenance therapy should consider getting one, you know, in case of emergency. I keep mine in my wallet, right by my license/ID in case.

Link to the free resource kit, with ID card:
