Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer Health.

Yes, most doctors who prescribe Suboxone are Psychiatrist with a specialty in Addictionology. They will evaluate your son and prescribe the medication if he is willing. The doctors are required to follow certain guidelines in order to be licensed to provide Suboxone, which are designed to help the patient learn coping skills to assist with addiction recovery.
