Background: Dependency to opium is a worldwide problem. Objective: To merit the competency of a single high dose of buprenorphine in opium detoxification.
Results: Administration of 100 mg of buprenorphine as a single dose is very effective in the opium detoxification.
Discussion: Our study suggests that administration of 100 mg of sublingual buprenorphine as a high single dose is quite practical in opium detoxification. Hence, this experience could be a factual addition to the literature.
Conclusions: We infer that a single high dose of buprenorphine efficaciously treats opium withdrawal symptoms.
