to get help from withdrawal symptoms. My wife was on suboxone
for about a year. It did indeed help her with withdrawal and
her long term cravings. I think it's better than methadone for many reasons- Not going to a clinic everyday, less exposure to addicts at the clinic (which can trigger and help you follow through with a relapse), you are more closely monitored for abusing drugs than a methadone clinic, less bad "stigma", etc.
