Suboxone is prescribed for the treatment of opiate withdrawal symptoms and addictive cravings. Suboxone is used in a tapered dose, so recovering addicts may gradually return to a sober equilibrium. More people are using Suboxone for non-medical purposes than ever before in the United States, as means to satisfy their opiate addictions.
