Yes. Suboxone is an opiate, and all opiates are extremely physically addictive.

BUT-if you have a choice between taking opiates and taking Suboxone (synthetic opiate) take the Suboxone. No withdrawals, no cravings, no chasing drugs. It has helped me tremendously. I have been taking it for 5 months and don't even want to take any other opiate anymore. I used for 25 years--morphine, vicodin, etc.

You need to find a psychiatrist who is licensed to write a prescription, but there are many now. Some take insurance, some don't. It is more affordable than street drugs. I have blue cross and pay $30.00 for a co-payment for a month's supply (i take 12mg a day)--actually, insurance is weird would have that co-pay on any amount prescribed--10-100--I thank God for this drug.

What drug causes a physical and psychological yearn?

Both alcohol and opiates (opium, heroin, morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, fentanyl, Suboxone, etc.) are physically addictive. As far as I know, they are the only drugs that are physically addictive. Amphetamines, methamphetamines and cocaine are extremely psychologically addictive, as well as chemically addictive, but not physically addictive. Ecstasy also has a fairly high potential for psychological and chemical addiction, but it is not as addictive as speed, meth, or coke. Hallucinogens (LSD, marijuana, salvia, peyote, mescaline) are neither chemically addictive nor physically addictive. They can be psychologically addictive, though.

Addiction to suboxone...Is it true?

Buprenorphine is an opioid, and can produce the same withdrawal symptoms as any other opioids such as Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet), Methodone, and Fentanyl). It can be physicaly and mentaly addictive just as the substances above can. Buprenorphine is the component of Suboxone that produces this effect. Suboxone however, is commonly used to treat opiate dependence in an outpatient setting.

How do you use suboxone?

Suboxone is a sublingual pill (meaning it goes under the tongue and disolves). It can't be taken until the withdrawal symptoms start, usually about 3 days after stopping the opiates. It is a much better alternative to methadone because it is not addictive and it is only taken for a short time.

How long do you stay high on suboxone?

Well, Suboxone does not get you "high." The effects of Suboxone last up to about 36 hours. If you just take it out of the blue you won't get high but you will be in a little bit better of a mood and will notice you have a lot more energy. You should never take any drugs for recreational purposes. Suboxone is also very addictive itself and has very serious withdrawal if you suddenly stop taking it after prolonged use. well i am a methadone addict i don't just use recreationally. i am trying to quit. I disagree....Suboxone got me very high. And it lasted a LONG time. I remember going to a wedding, I took the Suboxone in the afternoon and was still high at midnight. The above post is right, it is addictive and the withdrawals suck. Well, you do feel a little something with suboxone, I pesonally would not categorize it has feeling high , cause if you have ever shot up heroin then you can't really say that suboxone gets you high. It certainly makes you feel better. But if you just take it out of the blue you will a slight buzz but nothing to write home about.
