After Using Suboxone, Will I Relapse?

According to the NIH, 75% of Suboxone users will not relapse when treated under a medically-assisted (MAT) program. Relapse is dependent on several factors, including the length of treatment and whether you’ve had counseling to help you overcome the physiological dependence on other opioids.


The road to an opioid-free life seems so distant. You’ve heard the rumors that you’ll relapse once you stop therapy or you’ve tried yourself and failed. So, is Suboxone going to help you or will you relapse once you stop using it?

Suboxone is an FDA-approved drug that has a high success rate, up to 75% according to the NIH, for opioid addiction recoveries. As Suboxone is only a partial opiate agonist, it can be used for longer periods without being misused or abused. This is what makes it one of the most effective solutions for opioid addiction recovery and what contributes to the low relapse rate.

While Suboxone has a high success rate, it must be coupled with a supervised medically-assisted therapy program along with physical and physiological counseling for the greatest chance of avoiding relapse issues.

For many, following advice from your doctor, maintaining the proper dosing, weaning off of Suboxone as recommended by your doctor, and maintaining an open line of communication with your counselor should be enough to avoid relapse.
