Suboxone is a medication used to treat long-term addiction to opiates and opioids. It is even effective for treating long-term heroin addiction. It has been proven to be more effective and less addictive than Methadone. Suboxone is used to help patients break their addiction to Methadone.
Many doctors prefer using Suboxone to treat addiction. Suboxone can not be broken down and used to get high. Suboxone stops withdrawal symptoms almost immediately. Patients do not have to be on Suboxone for as long as other medications used for addictions to narcotics and other pain killers. Only doctors who specially trained and licensed can treat addiction using Suboxone.
