Gradual taper: Suboxone clinics manage opiate dependence with Buprenorphine maintenance and taper therapy. Programs will start you on 16 mg per day (4 half-tablets) and taper the dosage over 2-3 years, depending on how strong your cravings are and how quickly you progress. Achieving long-term abstinence depends on several factors, including quitting smoking, never using opiates again, and avoiding triggers.

Suboxone: This is quite easy. Your doctor will wean you off slowly. Then after you have been off for one week he may do once a month vivatrol injections for a few months.
