I was a research scientist, but I must say I am having trouble getting some basic info on suboxone and how used. As of not it looks like there is a short use that basically steps in when one quits for good a long standng oxy habit and is at zero. to help for 14 days to a month.

And then there sees to be the conversion to another drug to maintain one in a state better than w/d or pain. Obviouusly some people have been taking some form of bup for years and have different opinions.

I want to know more about help in a short term program after years of oxy and now a step-down with lots of pain - and can find nothing clear. this should not be this hard.

I'm sorry, but I'm not understanding what information it is that you're looking for. Perhaps you could clarify - are you still in active addiction and considering suboxone? Like I said, it's just not clear.

Doctor's used to prescribe suboxone mostly for detox purposes and short term use but more and more they are prescribing for long term maintenance because the relapse rates are near 100% for short term use.

With that being said, I don't know if you were "addicted" to your oxycontin or if you were merely "dependent" on it. There is a difference. Those who are merely "dependent" probably have a much greater chance of being successful with short term detox. Those who are addicted, statistically do better with long term maintenance.

What else are you wanting to know?
