Can I get addicted to Suboxone?

Table of Contents

Addiction to a substance is a disabling chronic condition that has two components:

  • Physical dependence on the substance; and
  • Negative impact of uncontrolled substance use on one’s life.

Patients are physically dependent on taking buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) daily in order to feel normal and healthy—similar to patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, or depression who take daily medications to feel healthy. Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), when taken as prescribed by a medical provider, treats addiction and does not cause the negative impacts of uncontrolled substance use on one’s life, goals, and daily functioning. Buprenorphine/naloxone treatment is NOT replacing one addiction with another.
