Sounds like you're addicted to oxycontin, that you're taking suboxone to alleviate symptoms of withdrawal in an effort to detox on your own. Detoxing on your own is a highly unlikely proposition. A principle of sound clinical practice is that in order to ensure a favorable prognosis, it's best to detox under medical supervision and continue in on-going treatment thereafter. It is possbile to do so in a hospital based setting (in-patient), in most residential treatment programs as well on an outpatient basis. Referrals can be provided if requested. You could always look up detoxing and treatment of opiate addiction, in-patient, outpatient, etc.
