Welcome to our Forum

SuboxForum provides buprenorphine and Suboxone information, and is a place for addicts and those who love them to discuss opioid, pain pill, heroin, and other addictions. Join us to discuss your personal reasons to taper off Suboxone or your reasons to stay on Suboxone. Recognizing that opiate dependence is a potentially fatal disease, we respect all effective treatments for opiate dependence, whether or not the treatment includes buprenorphine or Suboxone. We recognize that Suboxone is the first iteration of a new approach to opioid dependence, and we use the forum to stay informed about the latest forms of buprenorphine and other opiate analogs.


Active threads include discussions about Suboxone withdrawal, buprenorphine side effects, tapering Suboxone or buprenorphine, and issues related to Suboxone induction. We also invite discussion of methadone maintenance and abstinence-based recovery. We invite new members to share their personal stories about addiction, including insights gained during their struggles. One of the site's founders, Jeffrey T Junig MD PhD, has an active psychiatric practice that includes treating opioid dependence with or without the use of buprenorphine. He provides a medical perspective and discusses the newest findings related to addiction and buprenorphine. Subscriber members, visitors, and even trolls must remember that the forum is NOT your doctor, and does NOT give official medical advice. The forum is intended to promote discussion with your OWN physician.


If you are not yet a member of the forum, please sign up and join us in our discussions. Membership is absolutely free. We only ask that you remember the following rules of this forum:

  • This forum is for people who have made their treatment choice whether it be Suboxone, Methadone, or meetings and no medication. We recognize that some readers are not yet at the end of the choosing process, and we ask that they read with an open mind, and make their decisions without encouraging debate on the forum.
  • Do not get into debating which is better-- such debates never change minds, and often introduce false information that clouds intelligent decision-making.
  • Show respect for the decisions of others and avoid personal attacks.

We put this forum together to raise awareness of the current epidemic of opioid dependence, to foster open discussion about the disease of addiction, and to further education about the proper use of buprenorphine. We receive no compensation from pharmaceutical companies, including Reckitt-Benckiser, the maker of Suboxone and Subutex. We receive no government funding or grant monies. We have no interest in furthering ANY agenda, other than a general goal of reducing the number of deaths from addiction. If you are interested in supporting this site through donations or advertising, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] Any relationship with advertisers will be disclosed here. All advertising at this time is with Google Adsense. If you are a billionaire, hate addiction and want to buy everyone a super-charged forum, we would be willing to struggle with the moral issues caused by accepting your generous gift.

Whether it is toward my youtube videos, this forum, my practice... the anti-sub folks call me a 'greedy pusher' without knowing anything about me! I'm sure many of you have done battle as well.

Family Stories

It is important to realize that our own perceptions well be altered by addiction; the road to true self-awareness requires listening what is said by others who know us, particularly if the also hope for the best for us. With that in mind, please post if you have family members or other close friends with addictions.

Bupe for Life

NO arguments about stopping vs. staying, no taper questions. For people who use buprenorphine as the mainstay of their life-long recovery program, with no CURRENT interest in stop dates. We believe addiction is a life-long illness that deserves life-long treatment. For people on buprenorphine and for people who love them- who feel the same way.

The pharmacist eyes you suspiciously, and suddenly you wished you had shaved earlier this morning... your second-grade teacher is in line behind you, talking to your girlfriends mother... as the pharmacist yells for all to hear, 'I'm sick of YOU PEOPLE-- and I'm not filling this for you anymore!' Or your doctor, after increasing your pain meds for years, suddenly treats you like a criminal...
