You haven't really been on the Subutex long enough to "heal" the brain. My doctor recommends being on this for at least 3 to 6 months before stopping. If you jump to soon you will go into withdrawals from the previous opiate use.
To taper from the subutex when it is time can be done with little if any withdrawals if done slow enough. To read about the use of Subutex, try the following link:
Scroll down and it also covers how to taper from this drug.
There are other members here that can help you. One such member is pattishan61. You can search her name from your "friends" page and read her profile. It describes her taper from Suboxone (similar to Subutex).
