In brief: Absolutely!

Suboxone is used a great deal for Percocet (oxycodone + tylenol) addiction.
It can help prevent the physical and mental withdrawal symptoms when a person stops using medications like percocet. Remember, suboxone is meant to be a maintenance medication, not for detox.

In brief: Yes

The drug contained in suboxone is called Buprenorphine (bupe).
Bupe is by itself an opiate and can be addictive. Bupe is used as opiate replacement therapy and is part of the harm reduction model as opposed to the abstinence model. Percocet contains oxycodone which is also an opiate and can be very addictive. Bupe is used as a replacement for the oxycodone. Bupe is not a cure but does save lives.
