You have to be in moderate withdrawal, around 24 hours for most people.There is a sheet on this site called the COWS test, it is a set of questions and a way to rate your answers from 0 to 4 and you should come up at 26 on the test before you're ready for the suboxone. I have heard of some people taking longer than 24 hours, but, it won't be much longer than that.
