First things first. The "blocker" that you are speaking of is actually the active ingredient which is buprenorphine. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist. That drug, and that drug alone is responsible for filling up the brains opiate receptors and by doing this takes away withdrawal symptoms and does not allow other opiates you may take to attach to the receptors. The other ingredient is naloxone. When used properly (sublingually) the naloxone has no effect. It is in there to discourage intravenous use and if used intravenously can cause precipitated withdrawal.

The only way to use Suboxone is as directed. It is most effective when used under the tongue. Please do not crush, snort or inject it. Once a person starts abusing maintenance medications, there is nowhere else to go!

Suboxone (as well as methadone) can be wonderful tools for addiction, but they are tools only! You also need to get counseling, address any mental health issues, find support groups etc. You need a comprehensive recovery plan...Suboxone (or methadone) can not be the only thing you do to address your addiction, but as prt of a full recovery plan they can be very helpful!
