In brief: For a while

If you used Suboxone 8/2mg daily for 10 years it is nearly impossible to just quit it, You will go through significant withdraws for weeks.
Suboxone treatment depend on your commitment and depends almost solely on you, Suboxone dose should be redused gradually over good period of time , somewhere from 6 months to several years. Even if you are on 2 mgs daily its hard to just quit.
