Currently been on Suboxone for about 2 months and this miracle medicine has SAVED MY LIFE. I could go on for days with the positive changes I have been able to make since taking it! Seriously, from shooting dope and losing it ALL to having everything I could ever want and knowing in my heart I am an awesome mother now, this stuff is a true life saver.
Anyway, has anyone else been through this therapy that would be willing to share thier experience with me? We can email if that is more comfortable.
I know ALOT of GREAT people in this town are also afflicted by opiate addiction, but if yoou are truley ready for a change, this medication WILL help make it happen. Spread the word. If you have a loved one plagued by addiction, tell them to look into Suboxone treatment.
Again, I am very curious as to other peoples experience with this. Let me know. If it has helped you, post it! Lets spead the word and just maybe, help save someone else's life and clean this beautiful town up!
Peace

There is nothing "amazing" about suboxone. It's just another narcotic to help you get off a different narcotic. I know people that are on that garbage, and get just as messed up as they were when they were snorting percocets. You seem high right now as a matter of fact. Don't spread disinformation dummy.

Dummy? Inform yourself, kay? Suboxone is a partial opiod agonist, whitch if you knew anything about medication, is NOT an opiod but attaches to the brains opiod receptors, not allowing a true narcotic to attach. If one is "high" on it, the dose is too high. At proper dosing and after 24 hours, any psycologist or addictionist (my doc is both) will tell you it is impossible to get "high" on. Educate before u blast sobriety, in whatever form it may be.
I sound high? Is it not possible to be happy and have a positve outlook on life without being high?
This is the last I'll respond to your ignorance, I only surround myself with positivity now! Have a blessed day!

I am here to attest to the lifesaving drug, Suboxone. I was formerly addicted to oxycodone or 30s, as everyone seems to call it. I am a college graduate, have an amazing job, but addiction found me at the most vulnerable moment in my life. I found myself thinking that I could not get through the day, or be productive, or live up to everyone's expectations of me, unless I had pills. At the height of my addiction, I was spending every dime that I had to purchase them. It completely ruined my life. It destroyed my relationship with my family, and I pushed all of my friends away. I remember praying everynight, begging God to help me get off of them. Oxycodone is a powerful drug and has a very powerful mental and physical hold on people. It is the devil and if something is not done about the problem, then I believe oxycodone related deaths are going to be an epidemic.
Now on to Suboxone. Suboxone consists of 2 drugs. The first is buprenorphine (agonist) and the other is naloxone (antagonist). The way this drug works is: the buprenophine attaches to the opiod mu receptors in the brain to alleviate withdrawl symptoms because it is an opiod (derivitate of thebaine) and the naloxone covers those receptors once the buprenorphine is attached. By covering the receptors, the naloxone prevents anyone from getting high and, an amazing trait, it prevents the user from getting high from taking any other oxycodone pills. Of course, there is a way to make it somewhat recreational, but the people who do that are not serious about getting sober.
I started in the Suboxone program through my psychiatrist a while ago. I was drug tested at every appointment and randomly drug tested at the doctors disgression. At first, I still thought about getting pills and how I could manipulate the system. But I stuck with the program. And after i saw my life change dramatically for the better, I did not even have the urge to do pills. You can not use Suboxone if you are not incredibly serious about making a lifestyle change. So it will not work for the people who do not want to change, but for the people who are desperate to kill the oxycodone demon, like me, it is a life saver. I would without a doubt recommend Suboxone to any person who wants to lead a better life than oxycodone addiction. Suboxone can and does work and I am a living testament to that! I pray for everyone that is suffering from opiate addiction to someday decide that life can be so much better and take an incredibly huge step by enrolling in a Suboxone program. God bless.

Suboxone can work wonders if used the right way..the problem arises when you crush them and people start snorting them...which in case will make you die and probably kill you. People start crushing them, and then using opiates on top. Im glad to hear you are doing well, and continue with your sobriety.

I am also an addict. I have been 100% clean for 15 months now. I feel you all have made amazing strides in taking the steps you have towards freedom. It does concern me, that you have replaced a pill with a pill. I did not snort suboxine or abuse it, yet I felt high and sometimes better on it than with my percs or zanax. Maybe my dosage was too high, I am not here to down anyone about trying to better theirselves. This is a hard road to take. But is there a point when you can stop taking the suboxone? A point where pills simply aren't part of your life? Or are you essentially just hooked on another drug now? If these issues aren't a problem then maybe its working for you. But for me, I have a hard time taking tylenol, I won't even take a birth control pill everyday. I just can't have the habit, the temptation, whatever you want to call it, in my life. Its how I stay clean. Regardless of how its done, Good luck to all. And I pray for all us addicts each time I lay down my head

Sounds like some doc looking to get new patients here. The Subox clinics are very very lucrative for them. They usually require cash upfront.

I have a friend that used the suboxone clinic and as he started doing better they kept lowering and lowering the dosage until he didn't need them anymore!! Hang in there and stay clean!! Not sure who you are but I can say I am proud of you!! Very hard habit to keep away from!!

My program is through my psychiatrist office and all i have to pay is my copay, so I am very lucky in that aspect. As for the suboxone clinics, usually you would have to pay 300 up front. Yes this is a lot, but think of how much you were spending a month on pills, way more than $300 i bet.

As for the amount of time I plan to be on Suboxone, once my psychiatrist feels that my life has been completely stabilized he will start tapering me off the suboxone until eventually i will be off of them..:)

Everyone who is trying to tackle the beast of getting sober...my heart goes out to you and I pray that it works out for you the way it has for me!

Thank you =) Its a fantastic feeling to have. I share that same pride, for your friend. I don't have to know anyone personally to know what a struggle it is and each step along the way deserves to be celebrated. Its a war within that us addicts will fight everyday of our lives, but if we're winning one day at a time, then Praise God <3

To skeptical and believer and all other positive posts: Thanks for the support! We recovering addicts Always need it. Btw, I am on strips, not pills, I don't see how these could be snorted or abused at all, so thats a great improvement on the company's part. My doc also agrees that ONLY when i am 100% stable will he begin to work me down and taper off the drug. Yes, its $400 a month, but thats not even a drop in the bucket to what I was spending on 30's.
Believer- how long before you were able to completley go off the sub? My doc is saying maybe even longer than a year (I am the most extreme case he's treated so far.) Also, CONGRATS to you!
Lol, I'm not a peddeling doctor, I am a very real recovering addict who has found a new way of life. I totally agree that one must be dead serious about sobriety for this to work.
I will keep all of you in my prayers, just as I do all addicts.
Again, THANK YOU for all the support AND don't forget to let loved ones know there is help if they are ready!
Have a blessed day
