Buprenorphine and Suboxone listed as Schedule III drugs because of their addictive properties. Buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract, used to treat opioid addiction. However, this drug does have addictive qualities, and opioid addicts in Arizona, who are dependent on it, will need a detox from buprenorphine. This form of detox will often be done through medical detox because the withdrawal symptoms are similar to what heroin will cause. Yet, some former addicts have said the withdrawal pains are milder but are still uncomfortable. This is a common problem with many opioid users, being placed on drugs such as buprenorphine. Opioids are not easy to stop taking, and the treatment process is difficult, and because of this, buprenorphine and Suboxone become an easy solution. It also becomes a solution for opioid addicts because of the lack of treatment options, or not being able to afford private drug rehab. Detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone is important and will help an addict make a transition into treatment.

Why is Suboxone prescribed?

Suboxone is prescribed to help prevent an opiate user from returning to the drugs they were taking. For example, a heroin addict or an OxyContin© user can take this drug as part of a maintenance program to help with the remainder of the drug they were abusing before. The drug is made up of two different drugs, Buprenorphine and Naloxone, which helps block opiate receptors in the brain, alleviate withdrawal symptoms, and manages cravings.
