Suboxone – miracle cure?

Will it work? Will I get my son back from the claws of heroin?

My son has been in the Psychiatric Assessment Unit for 3 days. Heavily sedated to help him with withdrawal. Seraquil. Adivin. Acetominophin.

Today the psychiatrist assessed him. Apparently after weighing pros and cons, suboxone is the recommendation. He’s to start his first dose today. He phoned me to say how this will solve all his problems because it’s an opiate for his physical pain, his depression and anxiety, and it’s provided through medical.

No more lying. No more conning and thieving. No more depression. No more stomach pain.

Sounds too good to be true.

  1. Suboxone gets you high. I speak from experience. I took it when I was in active addiction to chase the opiate high. Suboxone for THIS addict is not a solution. The only thing that has worked for me is the program of Narcotics Anonymous and the 12 steps of NA. Grateful for NA today and I currently have 2 years, 8 months and 23 days clean with COMPLETE abstinence from all mind and mood altering chemicals. Hate to hear your son is having to go through this. Hope everything works out.

  2. My son used this only in a tight pinch. It gets people high but the after affects are hard to come out of due to the problems with brain chemistry caused by it. Also, it is really expensive, and once hooked the person has to have it. I would look into it more and then discuss what you find with your son before going ahead.

    1. Hi Matt’s mom. Now I cry for your loss. Thanks for your thoughts and ideas. He is on suboxone but it is on our medical plan here in Canada so it is provided to him at no cost – $$. But I anticipate other costs… such as more addiction issues. But at least he’s not stealing for his next hit of H.
