Suboxone is not the answer

by Dorothy
(Indiana)

My twin sons were addicted to heroin. I was addicted to opiates as well. It's genetic after all. Three years ago we thought we found a miracle an opiate blocker as they said that would help all of us get off of the opiates without the horrible withdraw symptoms that scares all of us addicts.

Well after being on it and well addicted to it the demons started coming out in the open. It is nothing more then a legal form of heroin. It started off as small groups and ended up running rampant in our town.

They started kicking everyone off the program because the DEA was onto them is what we heard through the grapevine. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever endured.

The withdraws were horrid and lasted for over two weeks. My one son went to prison for robbing someone for his heroin and tried the Suboxone twice before going back on the heroin. He is in there for three years.

Me and my other son helped each other through it, turns out it was the best thing that ever happened to us. We would have never gotten off of that program that was supposed to help.

So I am advocating against the Suboxone because it's just a control of an on going problem that will only prolong it.

My heart goes out to anyone coming off of it because the ones prescribing do not care, that is just my opinion so please beware if it sounds to good to be true it is.
