It kinda depends on what opiates you are trying to get off of and how much you are taking, however, most people need to be off lortabs, vicodin, oxy, perks, for around 24 to 36 hours and be in moderate withdrawal with a COWS score of at least 26. The COWS score is the Clinical Opiate Withdrawal Scale and measures each withdrawal symptom on a scale of 0 to 4. If you are on methadone, then it is a totally different ballgame and you need to ask the doctor who will be prescribing the subutex. You will likely start feeling relief of the withdrawal in as little as 15 minutes with complete relief in around 45 minutes and nirvana ( not really, but you'll feel like calling it that after the withdrawals ) in around the 2 hour mark.
