Suboxone clinic: It is very hard to say what will happen . Call and ask them. If they don't take the time to explain then that's a prob. They may want some extensive testing. 1st day you should be interviewed. Then asked to detox over 24 hours, be opiate free for 24 hours. Then given the medicine by someone in the office and observed for several hours . You should be fine at that point with a follow-up

Going on Suboxone: It is a true lifesaver for many, but remember that it is an opiate and once you get on it there is a probability you won't be able to get off and end up on maintenance. And that could be a good option depending on the circumstances.
