BMT is an acronym for buprenorphine maintenance therapy which is a treatment for opioid addiction.
Two brands of buprenorphine have been approved for this treatment in America – Subutex and Suboxone. Buprenorphine affects the brain in the same way as opioids and so can produce the same dangers that heroin can.
However Buprenorphine has a “ceiling” effect where it stops being effective and so is safer than heroin and other drugs of abuse when it comes to addiction and overdose. BMT may be prescribed to people who have been diagnosed as being addicted to opiates and can be expected to comply with the addiction treatment programme prescribed by certified addiction treatment consultants in rehab.
