Suboxone: Suboxone is medication approved for the treatment of opiate dependence. If you are addicted to opioids you are considered. First you start with subutex for a few days and continue with Suboxone for the maintenance phase. Subutex and Suboxone are the first narcotic drugs available under the drug abuse treatment act (data) of 2000 that can be prescribed in your physician office.
