Suboxone has given me my life back after being addicted to heroin for over 2 years. I have been clean and on Suboxone now for 18 months and I'm finaly picking up the peices of my wrecked life. Next month I will start weaning off of Suboxone.

Heroin and other drugs had ruined my life. I tried to stop when I went to college in Orlando for Recording Arts and producing music but it only got worse. I was shooting up to 13 bags a day at that point and I had to drop out because my habit was too expensive and It took me a full day of stealing and scheming to get enough money. Back then Pawn shops and auto shops were like home to me. Thats all changed now with the help of Suboxone. It takes my cravings away and helps me to lead a normal life, well as normal as a life can get for addicts. It is expensive but not as expensive as jails, institutions, and death is.
