Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to compare overall patient preference for either Suboxone® sublingual film 8/2 or Zubsolv® sublingual tablets 5.7/1.4. Suboxone sublingual film 8/2 contains 8mg buprenorphine and 2mg naloxone. Zubsolv sublingual tablets contain 5.7 mg buprenorphine and 1.4 mg naloxone. Both interventions act as a substitute for opiate drugs like heroin, morphine or oxycodone and help withdrawal from opiate drugs over a period of time.

Drug: Zubsolv sublingual tablets
A single Zubsolv sublingual tablet containing 5.7mg buprenorphine and 1.4mg naloxone taken sublingually on either Day 0 or Day 1, depending on randomized treatment arm assignment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Intervention Preference As Assessed by Participants [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    At the conclusion of Study Day 1, participants completed a study exit product comparison questionnaire. This outcome summarizes the percentage of participant answers to the question: When thinking about the two medications you evaluated over the last two days, which medication type did you prefer?


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Participant Preference With Regard to Overall Taste of Interventions [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    At the conclusion of Study Day 1, participants completed a study exit product comparison questionnaire. This outcome summarizes the percentage of participant answers to the question: Which one did you prefer in regards to overall taste?

  2. Participant Assessments With Regard to Ease of Dissolution of Interventions [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]
    At the conclusion of Study Day 1, participants completed a study exit product comparison questionnaire. This outcome summarizes the percentage of participant answers to the question: Which one did you think dissolve easier in your mouth?

  3. Percentage of Participant Favorable and Unfavorable Response to the Question: How Easy or Difficult Was it to Open the Package? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Responses were captured on a 5-point scale with the 5 representing the most favorable response, 3 representing a neutral response and 1 representing a negative response. 'Favorable' responses include assessments 5 and 4, while 'Unfavorable' responses include assessments 3, 2 and 1.

  4. Percentage of Participant Favorable and Unfavorable Response to the Question: How Easy or Difficult Were the Package Instructions to Follow? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Responses were captured on a 5-point scale with the 5 representing the most favorable response, 3 representing a neutral response and 1 representing a negative response. 'Favorable' responses include assessments 5 and 4, while 'Unfavorable' responses include assessments 3, 2 and 1.

  5. Percentage of Participant Favorable and Unfavorable Response to the Question: How Comfortable Did It Feel In Your Mouth? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Responses were captured on a 5-point scale with the 5 representing the most favorable response, 3 representing a neutral response and 1 representing a negative response. 'Favorable' responses include assessments 5 and 4, while 'Unfavorable' responses include assessments 3, 2 and 1.

  6. Percentage of Participant Favorable and Unfavorable Response to the Question: How Easily Did the Medication Dissolve in Your Mouth? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Responses were captured on a 5-point scale with the 5 representing the most favorable response, 3 representing a neutral response and 1 representing a negative response. 'Favorable' responses include assessments 5 and 4, while 'Unfavorable' responses include assessments 3, 2 and 1.

  7. Percentage of Participant Response to the Question: Did You Experience Any Uncomfortable Effects of Burning or Stinging? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Participant responses were captured on a 10-point scale with 0 = None and 9= Extreme.

  8. Percentage of Participant Response to the Question: Did You Experience Any Uncomfortable Effects of Skin Irritation or Blisters? [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Participant responses were captured on a 10-point scale with 0 = None and 9= Extreme.

  9. Percentage of Participant Response to the Request: Please Rate the Medication You Received Today in Terms of the Drug's Ability to Product a 'High' [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Participant responses were captured on a 10-point scale with 0 = No high and 9= Extremely strong high.

  10. Percentage of Participant Response to the Request: When Thinking About the Medication You Used Today, Indicate on the Line Below Your Ability to Abuse This Medication [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    Participant responses were captured on a 10-point scale with 0 = No desire to abuse and 9= Extremely high desire to abuse.

  11. Percentage of Participant Response to the Question: If You Did Want to Abuse This Medication, Would You Prefer to...... [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]

    Choices to the question above are:

    • Crush and snort
    • Liquefy and inject
    • Not able to abuse this formulation

  12. Percentage of Participant Response to the Question: Compared to the Medication That You Are Currently Using for Treatment of Opioid Dependence, The Study Medication You Just Used Was..... [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]

    Choices to the question above are:

    • More effective as a treatment for opioid dependence
    • Equally effective as a treatment for opioid dependence
    • Less effective as a treatment for opioid dependence
    • The same medication that I normally use

  13. Dissolution Time of Intervention as Recorded by a Trained Observer [ Time Frame: Days 0-1 ]
    The subject was observed and times documented for time of administration and time dissolution (recorded in minutes and seconds) was completed by designated qualified study personnel at the site.

  14. Change From Baseline in Subject Opiate Withdrawal Scale (SOWS) [ Time Frame: Day 0 prior to dosing, end of Day 0 (post dose), end of Day 1 (post dose) ]

    Participants completed the Subject Opiate Withdrawal Scale (SOWS) at baseline, and the end of each day of treatment.

    SOWS is a validated scale when used as defined. The research site did not use SOWS as defined. The sponsor made the decision to not report this data since it was not captured in a validated format.
