Default Buprenorphrine and Acamprosate

Do you feel that drugs such as Buprenorphrine (an opioid) and Acamprosate (Camprol) should be used in the treatments of opioid addiction and alcoholism? I have always wondered if they actually help more than they hinder a person's recovery process.

there are concerns about this. For many years methadone has been given as a cure for heroin treatment, but most got addicted to methadone. If you are under the care of a specialist then it should not be a problem.

I agree. These interventions are some way to help you manage the withdrawal symptoms you may encounter. With the proper supervision from a rehab professional, you should be okay.

I am concerned that you are just replacing one addiction with another. Hopefully your replacement addiction would be far easier to treat than your original one.
