My son was addicted to painkillers for 4 yrs. Last July he started Methadone at a clinic and has been on that ever since. Today he called me and said he went to the dr yesterday and went on Suboxone. Why can't he just quit taking any meds for his addiction? After taking Methadone for a yr, shouldn't he be able to just quit. He no longer takes any pain pills and doesn't even drink alcohol anymore, but when or will he be able to take nothing at all? What is the difference between Methadone and Suboxone? Don't mean to sound stupid, but I would really like to understand. I think maybe I nag him too much due to my lack of understanding an addiction.
