I agree that the approach that Breezy suggested is a good one. I also think that this doctor could have handled the situation with a bit more regard for the possibility that you were being honest. However, I find that a great many people come into their first few sessions with less than a full commi...

Slipper- I think this comes through in some of the other posts, but most likely the benzos are not helping you sleep at all, and potentially making it worse. The research on sleep is pretty strong, and we know that benzos definitely impact how much time is spent in deep sleep, causing cycles of depr...

I get what he is saying. Now this is just my take on what he is trying to say and i could have misinterpreted it. I think he is saying that addicts have delusions about there use, what it is really doing to their lives, etc. I do think when in active addiction we do not live in reality. We become o...

I see that a lot of people have said some variation of this, but I feel it is worth repeating. One of the primary components of addiction is the nearly psychotic thinking that goes along with it. In fact, I think it is THE primary component. Regardless of the substance or behavior, once someone cro...

Taking the sub is by far a better option than relapsing, atleast to me. I want to prevent relapse at all cost. I agree, and that is the idea behind maintenance dosing. I guess I am saying you could not take the subs and relapse, take it and not relapse, but you could also not take it and not relaps...

Re: My mom took my suboxone, wont give it back, fear of relapse

Hi- Your question got me wondering exactly how the subs might help or hurt you at this point.
