What to say?: Can take the Suboxone as prescribed, but the real question is why use Cocaine on or off suboxone. The purpose is being defeated. Counseling, CBT, group therapy, they all help.

There's no point in taking the Suboxone if you aren't going to abstain from other drugs. The whole point of Suboxone is to stabilize your withdrawal symptoms and give your brain time to heal. If you are using other drugs your brain won't heal.
