I was in a bad car accident and had to take pain pills. I ended up getting addicted to them and want to stop using them as quickly as possible. I heard that Suboxone can be great for overcoming an addiction, but I thought Suboxone was an opiate. Is Suboxone considered to be an opiate and why woudl you take another opiate to recover from an addiction to opiates? It doesn't make any sense to me.
