How long will it take to complete the Suboxone treatment?

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) treatment duration exceeds 1-6 months. Addiction is a chronic condition, and because of that, we recommend long-term use of buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone). Research shows that patients who stay on buprenorphine long-term are more likely to be opioid-free. 


Conversely, studies demonstrate that within one month of stopping buprenorphine treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use. Our program at Bicycle Health is a long-term, continuous program that supports patients over months-to-years. One-month or otherwise short-term Suboxone treatment is not something we do or support.
