Is it common for doctors to prescribe Suboxone for mild to sometimes very moderate chronic back pain. I'm not an opiate addict. Are they peddling it?

Suboxone. That depends on the doctors specialty, their level of comfort , and their experience with the medication.
Suboxone. That is a very aggressive approach.... Try anti-inflammatories first, ortramadol (ultram) or so... Not sure what the motivation was....
