A lot of addicts learned about Suboxone from a drug dealer, rather than a medical professional. Withdrawal from opiate addiction is very difficult, and to quit without help is also very difficult. But they asked the dealer, rather than the health care provider if there was anything that could help them quit.
In your Withdrawal and Recovery process, it is necessary to NOT try to keep up with the same people you used to hang out with -they will tempt you towards past bad habits. Medications like buprenorphine (Suboxone) or methadone (another popular drug to help you get off pain pills or heroin) will help you control the addiction cravings you used to have.
