What is our success rate with patients who taper off Suboxone and stay clean?

Table of Contents

Medication for addiction treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine or methadone is critical to prevent overdose and death. Research shows that with MAT, 75% of patients will still be in recovery one year later. Conversely, studies demonstrate that more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use within one month of stopping buprenorphine treatment. 

Thus, we do not recommend patients stop taking buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), as it is a key component to addiction treatment. If you do decide to wean off buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), though, our providers at Bicycle Health can work with you to develop a treatment plan that best meets your goals for recovery.
