Detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone will not be easy, and the withdrawal symptoms are much the same as what heroin will cause. Buprenorphine is given to help opioid addicts stop abusing opioids, yet buprenorphine has the same addictive properties as heroin. Too many addicts in Georgia become addicted to drugs such as buprenorphine. Unfortunately, this drug can be seen as an easy solution, but it does pose the risk of serious addiction. Buprenorphine is listed as a Schedule III narcotic, because of its addictive properties. When you need help with a buprenorphine or Suboxone addiction, you should be seeking out the proper treatment solutions such as medical detox and drug rehab. Medical detox programs in Georgia can help buprenorphine users overcome their addiction or dependency.
