Suboxone Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

Suboxone, the brand name for the drug buprenorphine and naloxone mixtures, is commonly used to treat for opioid addiction. Suboxone is a way to help people remove opioids from their body while blocking uncomfortable and potentially harmful withdrawal symptoms

Even with the numerous benefits of the drug, Suboxone use still can cause a substance use disorder to develop if a person takes a large enough dosage or over a consistent amount of time. The Recovery Village created an assessment to help identify potentially harmful Suboxone use by listing specific scenarios that align with a substance use disorder. While the results can be helpful and inspire people to seek addiction treatment, they cannot replace an official diagnosis of a substance use disorder.

Am I Addicted to Suboxone?

Using information from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, one of the main resources for identifying a substance use disorder, The Recovery Village created this quiz to help people identify whether their Suboxone use could be harmful. Please answer “yes” or “no” for each question regarding your Suboxone use in the past year, but do not respond based on the use of alcohol (instead, take this quiz to identify alcoholism).

Please answer “yes” or “no” based only on your Suboxone use. In the past 12 months:

Have you done anything illegal in order to obtain Suboxone?
Have you felt a strong urge or craving to use Suboxone after not taking the drug for an extended period of time?
Have you lied about addiction to opioids or opiates in order to receive Suboxone?
Have you experienced some of the common side effects of long-term use, such as hair loss, poor stress management, and a lack of control over emotions?
Have you taken any other substances in combination with Suboxone?
Have you experienced financial hardships due to your Suboxone use?
Have you attempted and failed to stop taking Suboxone or reduce dosage?
Has your Suboxone use caused a strain on any relationships with family members or friends?
Have you felt guilty about taking Suboxone?
Have you taken Suboxone for any reason other than as an opioid replacement?
