The addiction to prescription opiates and opioids has turned into an epidemic in United States. National Survey on Drug Use and Health, conducted in 2014, revealed that over 1.9 million Americans were suffering from a prescription painkillers use disorder. Opioids are very potent painkillers which are frequently prescribed by the doctors to patients suffering from unbearable pain. Such as the patients of terminal cancer, accident victims etc are often prescribed opioid painkillers like hydrocodone. Just like illicit, strong opioids, for example heroin, prescription painkillers are habit forming. Once the dependence develops on these drugs, proper treatment plan is needed for recovery. A number of medications are used during the process including opioid antagonists i-e the drugs which work in a way essentially opposite to opioids. They help block the effects of opioids. Suboxone is one of these drugs. It is partial antagonist to opioids, the reason why it is used during the treatment process.
