for someone who has just started suboxone in a treatment facility, today being day 1, when will withdrawal happen?

It already has: You have to be in withdrawal already when starting Suboxone and then it quickly relieves many symptoms. Depending on the opiate usually 12-24 hours is recommended from last use to starting suboxone, degree of relief depends on factors such as amount and type of opiate used and amount of Suboxone given.

I've heard of inpatient units where patients were given 8 mgs of Suboxone when they first walked on the unit and without withdrawal checks.
