Which pharmacy can I use?


You can choose any pharmacy that accepts electronic prescriptions.

What is Sublocade?


Sublocade is an alternative way to receive buprenorphine. It’s given in a once-monthly injection to those with mild to moderate addiction. By releasing medications slowly over the course of multiple weeks, patients can avoid the need for daily oral medications.

Why the name Aegis Medical?


We chose the name Aegis Medical because of its meaning.
