Smile Anyone use suboxone to get off of methadone?

Anyone gone from methadone to suboxone? This is my third time on methadone and I am completely clean and sober. The first time i got an involuntary detox and the second time my ride went to jail and it really sucked both times. I also started using both times. This time I am doing great. At some point I would like to stop the methadone and I've heard that you can use suboxone to get off methadone. Has anyone tried this or heard of it. I don't want to stop the methadone for at least a couple months but I want to see if this way works. I used suboxone a few times but I used it more as a bandaid than quitting opiates. If I didn't have pills/dope one day I would keep a few suboxens on hand and they did help me get through the day.
