Detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone is not always easy, because these drugs can cause dangerous addictions. Opioid addicts who are prescribed buprenorphine or Suboxone in Kentucky will have the risk of becoming addicted to this drug. Buprenorphine is listed as a Schedule III drug and does have the same addictive properties as heroin. The withdrawal effects caused by buprenorphine and Suboxone will also be similar to heroin and should be managed by medical detox centers in the state of Kentucky.

Can Suboxone be used for chronic pain?

Suboxone has many uses, but as with other drugs that are used for chronic pain, if the patient is not taking the drug as prescribed, it can become quite habit-forming and a person will become physically dependent on them. Detox can be more difficult the longer a person takes these types of drugs, and most Suboxone users will require detox to help them withdraw from the drug.
