Transitioning from Methadone to Suboxone

Has anyone had any experience going from methadone to suboxone? I've been on methadone for 12 years and haven't used or drank in that time. I'm at 15 mgs of methadone and I go into the hospital on Monday at 7:30am to go on Suboxone. I'm looking for what it feels like. Is there withdrawl symptoms once the Suboxone has been administered. After being on Suboxone, what is different as compared to methadone? Methadone takes the urge away to use. Suboxone is supposed to block opiates, but does it keep you from using like methadone?
