Suboxone is addictive. Lots of medications which are prescribed for legit purposes are addictive. Benzodiazepines and Opiates are addictive and prescribed every day to all ages and classes of people. Is anyone arguing that Suboxone is addictive? The difference is that when someone gets a prescription for Suboxone it is a legal, legitimate prescription. They don't risk meeting people in parking lots, going to different doctors and faking ailments, or god forbid stealing from people to get money for their next fix. They can get their legal, legit prescription and take it as prescribed while they lead normal, law abiding lifestyles. It's intended to be tapered off of, but even if it's used for maintenance, isn't that a better option than abusing opiates? Addiction doesn't discriminate. There are a lot of good, respected people who are struggling with addiction...teachers, doctors, religious leaders, etc., and if Suboxone helps them to manage their addiction in a less risky manner then so be it. It's none of your business.

I kinda feel sorry for you. You sound like a bitter old bitch with daddy issues or something did you get picked on as a child? Usually those are the ones that like to bully people and try to make people feel less then them. Get the stick out of your ass and stop judging people because I'm sure if you were once an addict you made A LOT of bad decisions to. Some people chose to quit cold turkey others prefer the Suboxone method or methadone. Who the hell are you to criticize anyone. atleast she chose to seek help before getting pregnant instead of continuing to abuse drugs. Your attitude is shitty. PLAIN & SIMPLE!!

Suboxone is a good thing, helping people! Yeah right

In the driver seat was Brandy Watts and the passengers were her 4 children who, according to the report, "were very upset." The officer asked Watts to perform a field sobriety which she failed. Watts allegedly told the officer she had taken a Suboxone.

According to the report, her children told the officer they were scared, "Mommy almost hit a house and was falling asleep while driving".

I really hope for your sake that your not as ugly on the outside as you seem to be on the inside because if that's the case then all I can say is bless your heart. Makes perfect since though. As they say misery loves company. You belittle people & try your best to make them feel worthless because you yourself feel inferior. So sad. I suggest you worry less about bashing me & other recovering addicts like me who are simply trying to get their life back & better their selves in the best way that works for them & focus more on yourself....just sayin

If this is true then I can guarantee you that she either lied hoping that because she has a prescription they would let her go & not take her kids or she was abusing it & taking a lot more then prescribed. As I stated in an earlier post their are some people who have no desire to get clean an abuse Suboxone searching for a high or to keep from being sick until they can hustle up their next hit but their are also many people who want their life back an have the desire to better their selves & take it as prescribed. Their is a difference & to place all Suboxone users in the same category & label us all based upon the actions of those who chose to abuse it is simply absurd.

Straight from WJHL

GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL)-
A mother was arrested over the weekend for allegedly driving under the influence with her kids in the car.

Saturday around 6:30 pm, a Greene County sheriff's deputy was called to check the area of Mt. Pleasant Park. A witness said she saw a green Chevy Cavalier driven by a woman who was passing out at the wheel with four children inside.

The responding officer noted in a report, as the Cavalier was heading in his direction down Knoxville Highway, the car was approaching his lane of travel. The officer said he "got off the road so it could pass". The officer then turned around and stopped the car at the intersection of Hal Henard Road.

In the driver seat was Brandy Watts and the passengers were her 4 children who, according to the report, "were very upset." The officer asked Watts to perform a field sobriety which she failed. Watts allegedly told the officer she had taken a Suboxone.

According to the report, her children told the officer they were scared, "Mommy almost hit a house and was falling asleep while driving".

Watts was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and four counts of reckless endangerment. The officer also wrote tickets for no insurance, no seat belt, child safety restraints and driving left of center.

The children were released to their grandparents. A bond for Watts has been set at $6,000. The car was towed from the scene at the owner's request.

Serious question, cause I don't know.

Why go to a clinic and get a drug that's highly addictive to get off of another drug that was highly addictive?

Point is they're selling Suboxone in parking lots now, hell best friends are stealing it from each other, they're shooting up, might as well just give them Roxies, no different. And you got to remember all drugs had to have a prescription written to get them. It's not like Roxies are made in back bedroom.

What percentage would you say used Suboxone to get off of Opiates and then got off Suboxone and is now leading a clean life? Just guessing here, I'd say 1% maybe.

Suboxone is a scam all the way from the drug companies, to the pharmacies, the doctors and user.

Yea I have heard that chronic pain excuse till I could puke. There are reasons pain medications are on the market. The ones that have a clue know they are addictive and will do their best to not become an addict. I do know the difference. I have a close family member who stays in a lot of pain and takes the lowest dose possible and I cam assure you they will never be using subs. However, I have another loved one whose minor/temporary pains have been a great excuse to get on prescription pain medication and oh goodness poor them they are now addicted and just won't stop so now let's run to the sub clinic cuz they are out of reasons or ways to get more pain meds. I have seen this destroy many lives and although I live in the middle of the results of this addiction, it is not myself that is the addict. Every time I have ever had pain medication I knew the consequences of addiction and so does every bull headed addict that let themselves get that far without doing something to prevent it or stop. I'm not clueless and never have been. I have seen this crap from every side and I have no sympathy for pill head addicts that tear apart their lives and everyone around them. I think it's sick and selfish to purposely have a baby while addicted to subs, just like it was selfish to let yourself become an addict to the point you couldn't function.

@clueless don't worry about them. U know who u are and what u accomplished. People are always trying to act like they know everything. Truth is everyone is different. How would they know how u feel. I heard ppl in the medical field are the biggest pill heads anyway.

Someone really needs to knock you down a couple notches so you can wake the hell up an realize that regardless of mine or any other recovering addicts mistakes I guarantee that you made plenty of stupid decisions when you were young maybe not the same exact decisions but just as bad I'm sure & if you say you didn't your full of shit. The only difference is yours wasn't as hard to correct so stop acting all high & mighty like your shit don't stink cause guess wat bitch it sure the fuk does!! You ain't nothing but a bitter judgmental coward bashing people anonymously. You should be so proud!!

I never said I was perfect. I certainly have made my share of mistakes and by no means am I afraid to admit it. On that note, are you now admitting that having a baby addicted to subs is wrong? I do believe you were proudly defending that earlier. As for being an anonymous coward, pretty sure I'm not the only anonymous poster on here and I have only used this name. If I knew you and you knew me then yes I would speak my opinions, not judgements, to your face. If you think it is necessary to name names and conjure up altercations, then you are by far wasting your time because I have a life that has no room for petty drama from strangers. Yes I am bitter towards addiction. My family has suffered greatly from it. I do not think I am better than you. I have never thought I was better than anyone. I still love the addict in my family. I won't defend their actions though. I don't condone their switch to subs either. It was still a trade off, just easier and more convenient. You can call me names and use all the defense tactics you want but I too know what this does to a person and their families and it really is heartbreaking. Oh and by the way, I am very proud that I am not the addict on here defending my addiction. I will never defend my mistakes and I would never be able to overcome them and make better choices if I couldn't admit I was wrong. I hope you shake your habit and you have a healthy prosperous life, you and your child.

Clueless....One more time...YOU ARE NOT A RECOVERING ADDICT! Recovering addicts do NOT use dope. Suboxone is dope, replacement therapy, maintenance drug...take your pick of names but it is still a drug. You are a junkie still using dope. A coward who would subject an innocent child to the horrors of withdrawal. Grow up, get off the dope and do something about your problem which is you.
