Buprenorphine and Suboxone are commonly prescribed drugs to treat acute and chronic pain and treat opioid addiction. Unfortunately, many opioid addicts in Utah become caught up in a cycle of replacing one drug with another drug, and never truly become drug-free. Buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract and does have the same addictive power as heroin, but it is not as potent as heroin. The euphoric effect felt by buprenorphine is why it is used to treat opioid addiction, but you are replacing one drug with another drug. Buprenorphine is commonly abused, because of its addictive nature, and is listed as a Schedule III drug. Opioid addiction is not easy, and detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone can be difficult.
