Step 1: Communicate the injection date to the specialty pharmacy

The specialty pharmacy will work with the office staff to coordinate shipment of SUBLOCADE in conjunction with the patient's appointment.

Once SUBLOCADE is acquired, store the medication according to regulatory and labeling requirements.

SUBLOCADE is a federal Class III controlled substance and requires special handling and storage.

The product arrived damaged. What should my office staff do?

If the product was damaged during shipment, it should not be administered to the patient. The HCP should notify the specialty pharmacy/specialty distributor immediately and arrange for a new shipment.

What happens if a patient does not show up for the scheduled injection appointment?

Your practice should follow established missed appointment protocols for patients who have been prescribed SUBLOCADE.
