What is a good drug for opiate addiction ?

Addiction Medicine: You need to work with your addiction medicine physician on this. I see you're already on subutex, which is an effective medication. This isn't the only option though -- Methadone and others are also possible. Discussing your entire medical situation with your own addiction medicine doctor can help you develop the most viable plan for you.
