    Submitted by NIDA on August 22, 2017 – While there is some abuse potential with Suboxone (buprenorphine-naloxone), it is less than other opioids, and research suggests those risks are outweighed by its great benefits in treating opioid use disorders. Data also suggest that most misuse is for controlling withdrawal and cravings, rather than obtaining euphoria. Research on the question of treatment need versus diversion risk for buprenorphine and methadone is summarized in our report Medications to Treat Opioid Addiction.
