Why Choose a Residential Detox for Suboxone
Suboxone can be useful as a stepping stone between heroin addiction and recovery, but there are many people who wind up hooked on this drug and unable to move forward towards the better life they deserve. The knowledge that suboxone contains an incredibly powerful opiate (buprenorphine is 20 times stronger than morphine) also means that there is a high potential for abuse - not to mention accidental overdose. If you, or somebody you care about, is looking to make a clean break from suboxone, your best option is likely an inpatient detox.

Are You Addicted to Suboxone
Suboxone is taking over from methadone in many parts of the world as the drug of choice for heroin replacement therapy. The fact that this substance contains a powerful opiate means you can use it instead of heroin, and you won't experience any withdrawal symptoms. This medication also contains another ingredient called naloxone which prevents the euphoric effect that makes heroin such an attractive drug to abuse. The idea is that it is going to be easier for you taper off suboxone than heroin, and you will have a higher quality of life on this replacement drug. It also means you won't have to spend any time around drug dealers.
Moving from heroin to suboxone is basically swapping one addiction for another, and not everyone who chooses this treatment finds it easy to taper off. The fact that you are now hooked on this drug means you are still likely to experience some negative effects of addiction - although things should be better than they were before. People do have ways of abusing suboxone to get high, and this can be an incredibly dangerous thing to do.
If you switched from heroin to suboxone as a path to recovery, you may be disappointed at your lack of progress. Becoming a long-term user of this replacement drug is definitely not the ideal situation, and the best option for you now may be to make a clean break from all opiates. This could be difficult (and possibly dangerous) to do alone, and this is why entering a detox program might be your best option.
Do You Need a Residential Detox to Quit Suboxone
Withdrawal symptoms from suboxone are said to be slightly less severe than heroin withdrawal but they can still feel overwhelming. The most common symptoms include:
• Body aches
• Intense anxiety
• Stomach problems
• Loss of appetite
• Chest fluttering sensation
• Restless legs
• Nausea and vomiting
Users who try to inject suboxone will experience withdrawal symptoms immediately because the naloxone will block the effects of any opiate in your system. When people quit using suboxone, they will experience withdrawals once the drug has left their system, and these symptoms will last for about five days.
