San Clemente, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/25/2016 --Sovereign Health has released a new article focused on the ongoing debate about Probuphine, a subdermal implant for the treatment of opioid addiction. As noted in the piece, "Political debate leaves opioid implant hanging in the balance," Braeburn Pharmaceuticals – the creator of Probuphine – announced that it's still moving forward and investing $20 million to plant a research and development manufacturing site in Durham, North Carolina.

"This editorial series takes a look at the current state of opioid addiction treatment in the U.S. and the continued debate surrounding the implant," said Rachael Mattice, managing editor for the Sovereign Health Group.

Sovereign Health Group will follow this story as it unfolds so we can continue to report on the latest behavioral health news for our readers."

This article is the third of a three-part series on the opioid implant.
