Default Suboxone treatment

Ive been going to suboxone treatment for sometime, about a month. They offer a counsler which I speak with weekly. Counsling seems to be going well. We take the session one at a time. Ive noticed all my emotions which lead me to use or want to use stem from my ex girlfriend, getting over her has been the hardest. I feel it shouldnt be that hard. If only i could make mends with her i wouldnt want to use, i have no choice but to recognize this isnt in my controll but hers. All I can do is hope for a hopeful future. Any comments feel free.

I think its great that you are using medication to help you stay clean. Many times people will judge you like you should be strong enough to go cold turkey but I dont know how effective cold turkey is or how successful you would be without the suboxone. Good for you!

Good for you for starting suboxone and getting off opiates - that's tough.

As for the grilfriend, I suspect she's a symptom of bigger /deeper issues. I'm not saying she's not a trigger - everyone's triggers are different, but if you were totally over her, if you are at all like me, you'd find some other emotion to want to numb. Give it time. Therapy takes time. And a month clean, while great, isn't that long - your brain's still adjusting to its new normal.

Iím very glad that suboxone is working for you and getting you clean. I think suboxone is a wonder drug and highlighting underused. A lot of the medical professionals still donít even know what it is . Not every doctor can prescribe it..
Itís great for detox but some docs use it also for chronic pain. Or a certain period of time or for however long it helps. Addiction sucks. No matter what the substance. Itís physical AND emotional. Watch for triggers. Learn what they are and try to avoid at all costs.
Best of luck to you.....
