One is an addictive opiate and another one is just as addictive an opiate. Yes, Suboxone
is an opiate and
is extremely addictive. People find it just as difficult to taper and
quit. One of the patients in our clinic, who we had to detox from Suboxone, was so addicted, that no matter how far down she titrated this drug she could not get off. At one point she was literally just licking the 1 mg strip, but she could not give it up. I find that most have the same problem with both of these drugs.
