My teenage son is dealing with drug addiction. His doctor wants to put him on suboxone. I was hoping someone on here can tell me how long a person should take suboxone for withdrawal? I don't want him to get addicted to this drug too.

I'm thinking it's six months to a year that some people stay on this suboxone stuff. It can take a while, so you should probably be talking about it with your son's doctor and not here.
Hello, I hope your son will get through his recovery okay. I researched this for one of my term papers last year. I think some can be on this medicine for six months to a year. But I also know others can be on it a lot longer, especially if they don't abuse it.
Most people who are using suboxone need a longer period to recover and remain clean afterward. This means some patients might stay on suboxone for as long as six months to a year. Sometimes people stay on it for longer than that if they need to. Talk about it with your son's doctor to make sure he's using it properly.
