Detox from buprenorphine is similar to, how it would be to detox off of heroin. Buprenorphine and Suboxone are not as potent as heroin but do still create the same euphoric effects, which is why the drug does become addictive. For many opioid addicts living in Nebraska, they will turn to buprenorphine or Suboxone because of how easy the access is to the drug. However, this drug can cause a physical or psychological addiction when the opioid addict remains on it longer than required. Buprenorphine and Suboxone are not meant for long-term use, but some opioid addicts do remain on the drugs for lengthy periods of time. When you are struggling with opioid addiction, it can be difficult to stop taking the drug. Medical detox will help, and it will help you detox from buprenorphine. After medical detox, you should be attending some form of inpatient drug rehab. What does make an opioid addiction difficult to stop is the endless cycle of going from one drug to another drug.

Why is Suboxone prescribed?

Suboxone is prescribed to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, and suppress cravings for opiates. Unfortunately, Suboxone can be habit-forming, and users can develop a physical dependency on this drug, which may require a Suboxone detox. When this drug is prescribed, it is important for the patient to follow the doctor's instructions exactly.
