In brief: Hydrocodones

After you have identified the reasons why you're addicted to hydrocodone, then you can proceed with an outpatient program with suboxone.
This procedure to be done in the doctors office and he usually takes two hours . The decision has to be certified to do this procedure. Once the detox is complete then you you need to figure out what are the reasons that you took painkillers.

In brief: Taper

Can you taper then stop? It would be better to try to cut down and stop with assistance from family, social, and professional support.
Sober support groups would help. Buprenorphine should not be first line treatment because the withdrawal is much longer and intense than hydrocodone. However, it is helpful for some. See an addictinin professional.
