I worked with the Indian Health Service in Tuba City, AZ from 1986 through 1990. On Navajo, the substance abuse services were "outsourced " to the tribe to manage and run. I'm not sure what the sentiment would be to try to provide Buprenorphine services, but probably they would be worthwhile to Native Americans as with any other population. Beureaucratic delay and red tape would be your likely challenges to overcome. Mike
