In brief: Suboxone Might Be

Try to find a suboxone prescriber through naabt.
Org. Suboxone is approved for the outpatient treatment of opioid(narcotic) addiction. Combined with appropriate counseling, you have an excellent chance of getting off of the vicodin.

In brief: That depends

Factors to take into account in an evaluation would include: reasons why taking vicodin, how many per day, how long, other addictions, other med/psych problems, etc.
Generally, getting off the medications is the easy part, either by tapering down or by using Buprenorphine (under supervision). Addiction treatment typically requires a long-term, 12-step program or something similar &/or a therapist.
