About Us

Thank you for your interest in Emerald City Suboxone Clinic, Washington State’s premier stop in treating opioid addiction. Opioid abuse and addiction is unfortunately on the rise in the United States. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), more 12 million Americans used prescription painkillers (opioids) in 2010 for non-medically related conditions. In the year 2000, half of all visits to a physician’s office were for pain related medications. This amounts to 164 million office visits just for pain.

Our intent is to treat opioid addiction through the use of Subtex or Suboxone (buprenorphine), which are the first narcotic drugs available under the Drug Abuse Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000 for the treatment of opiate dependence that can be prescribed in a doctor’s office. In order to prescribe this medication, special added qualification is needed for which both Dr. Randhawa and Dr. Yang have attained. Suboxone is heavily regulated by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), and only a limited number of patients can be treated with Suboxone per provider. As such, if you are interested, we encourage you to contact us for further information, as space is limited.
