Cant treat drugs with drugs. Trading one drug for another saboxi is as bad as heroin. Do away with it period.

It does not matter how much help you have if a person doesn't seek it or is not wholly committed to sobriety.

number one suboxone is a tool. It is used to ease withdrawl symptoms while the addict learn new behaviors,habits,while gaining new ways of learning how to live. Getting over the physical accute withdrawl symptoms is only the beginning of recovery. Yet it is what addicts will go through any length to avoid. If an addict can use suboxone as one tool with many other tools it can save lives. That way when an addict is stronger getting of suboxone is alot more easier. Addiction is a disease that sometimes needs medication to put the disease in remission. Four years ago suboxone saved my life. Gave my children a mother,and husband a wife. I used suboxone as prescribed by my doctor. When it was time to come off suboxone he gently eased my dose slowly down. One shoe does not fit all with any addict.

Thank you for explaining that. Good for you for seeing your problem and working to fix it. You should be proud. Hopefully someone, between their rants about their neighbors, will read this and gain some understanding. An addict, when he finally realizes he is in trouble, is at rock bottom. He is often malnourished and in poor health, and could not tolerate cold turkey withdrawal. In fact, it could kill him. Suboxone is a much cheaper alternative to hospitalization, alleviating the symptoms and allowing the addict to recharge and get healthy. Kicking drugs is a lifelong process. Just because you're clean doesn't make you any less an addict. It is a battle, and if you are not in a position to change your lifestyle, your friends and hangouts, and your entire life philosophy you will have difficulty staying sober.

Maybe if more people WANTED the help , they wouldn't have to turn into criminals. Maybe this person isn't addicted and is jumping on the band wagon with all the other Suboxone dealers who "claim" they need it. The help is there for those who want it. I'm sick and tired of the "poor them" "poor me" attitude. No one gets addicted you doesn't first chose to use drugs. There's enough education out there to know what can happen if you abuse drugs and alcohol. You don't wake up one day and are addicted. Don't start. Period.

Oh trust me I'm a addict. I have been in remission for 4 years. I never used street drugs. I broke my back and relieved the pills don't just make my back feel better but my depression that I been battling all my life. I figured pills that the doctor gave me cant be harmful,and I won't become addicted. I couldn't be more wrong.i figured that i survived rape, domestic violence, lost of a child that sure a little white pill couldn't take me down. I couldn't be more wrong. Like I said suboxone isn't for every addict. One shoe doesn't fit all for addicts. What help one addict won't work for another. I am not blaming my doctor either for my addiction. Just because I always did the right thing and always said no to drugs at parties or my peers wasn't full- proof. My brain was always wired to medicating myself. When I hurt myself and had to be on narcotics my brain activated itself to thinking I needed to medicate myself. Nobody wakes up addicted, but the personality traits like depression,and anxiety from low serotonin level in the brain I did just wake with.i would also like to add that things I did while on drugs I would hate it if somebody defined that as myself. I am most defiantly accountable for my actions I did while on drugs,but that wasn't the true person I am but the desperate,sick person I was.

Lori has no reason to steal. Just ask any of the guys who work there -they know all about Ralphie and his stealing!

A couple of years ago I was pricing batteries for my car. I checked out Sharlows and 2 days later I went back to buy a battery and the one I wanted was gone as well as several others.The attendant working told me Ralph took them,and didn't pay for them,that Ed had a lot of money and would just order some more.

We all know this is you Tammy and stop the bull. You need to grow up and stop your games. You say you love your father well wth, why would you type using your dads name if you love him so much? The only reason you use your dads name is because if he knew it was you he would give you shit. Lorie has not stolen from Ed and you know damn well she hasn't. The blame should go where it belongs he is your son, you have taught him well! If you were ay kind of mother you would stand on your own 2 feet instead of hiding behind daddy.

First of all Ralph don't steal tickets and how do you know anything about our family? Ralph is a good kid and he wouldn't hurt anyone. I AM HIS GRANDFATHER SO YOU NEED TO FIND SOMETHING ELESE TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE THAN SIT ON HERE AND TALK ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE. People need to learn not to judge others when they don't even know what they are talking about. Lets see you kick my ass. Why don't you go to church.
