Can I switch from Methadone to Suboxone?

Yes. Patients looking to move from Methadone to buprenorphine treatment, such as Suboxone, can switch. At Brightside, we have a special program for this kind of conversion because of Methadone’s long lasting effects. Patients that switch from Methadone to Suboxone should expect a longer withdrawal time before starting Suboxone because Methadone takes longer to leave the system than other opiates.
