It's vital that your friend take the Clinical Opiate Withdrawal test. She needs to score a 26 in order to start the suboxone treatment. It's best to do this under the care of a doctor or specialist. If she takes it too soon, yes, she will go in to what is called precipitated withdrawals. It's worse than regular withdrawals. Methadone is long lasting and may take longer than other opiates to reach the 26 needed before starting the subs. You can google "clinical opiate withdrawal test" You should be able to find it this way. Good luck and hope you all have a wonderful new year!

janscares, since your support groups are private, I could not tell if you were in the opiate addiction group or not. If you aren't I would suggest you add it to get more, & better answers from the experts on here. Now being a Holliday Weekend you may not get too many answers, plus I believe they are doing an updaye also which usually kind of messes up the site somewhat. Hang in there until Tuesday the 6th, & add that group please if you haven't already. Best wishes,
