Am I just switching one addiction for another?

No– With successful buprenorphine detoxification and counseling the patient can put the addictive behavior in remission. At Alpha Healing Center, buprenorphine is only used short-term (7 -28 days) for withdrawal. The dose of buprenorphine is reduced over time and eventually discontinued during this period. Physical dependence is unlikely to be established during this short term use of buprenorphine.
