Easy : Take it under the tongue. Your addiction to opiates and irrational action of shooting up suboxone, suggests significant impulse control and behavioral issues. Will likely benefit most from intensive 3 month + rehab. Suggest your find yourself an addiction psychiatrist for life.

Ongoing addiction counseling is also needed. There are techniques that addiction specialists can offer that will help reduce cravings and associated behaviors that lead to drug usage.
