Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

The first step to overcoming a suboxone addiction is to visit a hospital for detox. You will go through a controlled withdrawal with symptom relief provided by medications. After that, you will need inpatient rehab. Following that, you can seek treatment for depression with an antidepressant and/or therapy. You can maintain sobriety by going to regular meetings of AA or NA.
