This medication is used to treat opiate addiction, I would suggest you check this out (http://suboxforum.com/viewforum.php?f=10) if you don't know anything about this drug.

Although used to treat opiate addiction, suboxone can produce a high for someone who does not use it regularly. It is, after all, an opiate itself.

Fiona, this is serious stuff. Suboxone is a drug that is reserved for people who are in life threatening states of addiction, just like methadone.

For someone to take it when they don't need it can be incredibly dangerous. My first thought is the potential it could induce opiate dependence, that could lead on to other opiates, namely Oxycodone, morphine or heroin. Suboxone has been proven to be a gateway drug to other opiates when used illicitly by opiate-naive-(often young) people. Your child does have some kind of illicit connection in order to get the Suboxone so may be able to get other opiates, and he/she clearly has an interest in exploring drugs.

You have reason for concern, but not alarmed. If I were you, I would jump on the situation with some kind of intervention. Really explore the reasons why your child is curious about drugs. Are they happy? Why are they unhappy? Did something happen to make them want to use drugs?

But be careful not to be confrontational. I had an intervention once, and I just walked out!
