Yes if suboxone abuse is present, then addiction is present. It takes about 24 hours sometimes less for suboxone withdrawal to make itself known. As answered
it also talks about how going cold turkey with using maintenance drugs like suboxone could land you in relapse and how important it is to talk with your doctor about lowering your dosage until the withdrawals wont be so bad. Anytime you stop taking a drug after years of use you will undoubtably suffer some sort of withdrawal symptoms.

From my opinion, suboxone is not as addictive as heroin and its not as addictive as the other alternative- methadone. If you are a 'hope to die heroin addict' like I am then the suboxone program may do you a lot of good but only if your completely serious about getting clean and staying that way.

I heard about the suboxone side effects, like mouth pain, headaches, dizziness, numbness, sleep problems, stomach pain vomiting, and the consitpation. geez it seemed to me to be to big of a risk to take that stuff. Im glad I chose an alternative treatment.

Suboxone can be addictive however it is unfortunate that you have been led to believe that suboxone is just as addictive as heroin, because this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
