Addicts and relationships

Taking medication for addiction seems like pouring gasoline on a fire.
Say someone was taking Suboxone, Valium, Clonidine.

Aren't these medicines as abusive as any others?
These can be abused just like any other drugs.

Also, how does a person get off of these things? Clonodine is what Dr.'s use to take people off of opiate and benzodiazepine abuse.

They also tear relationships apart, any opinions?
