Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a reduced rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% exhibited abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased.

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction.

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
