Just wanted to introduce myself, I've been reading Dr,Junig's STZ blog for a while now, and just recently discovered the forum. I should mention some things about myself, I have never been addicted to opiates, never have been on Suboxone, or really have struggled with any substance abuse problems. I have (and still do at times) struggle with depression and anxiety issues. The main reason I have joined this forum is that I am currently pursuing doctorate degree to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and substance dependence is one of the areas that interests me the most. I have been working as a healthcare professional for a couple of years now and work with patient's who suffer from a variety of mental illnesses and addiction to several different substances. Unfortunately, I cannot give you guys any info from personal experience, but I will try to chime in once 'n a while with knowledge I learn through school and experiences I have with patient's on Sub. Looking forward to speaking with you all!

Welcome to the forum! You are welcome to chime in anytime. I hope we can be as informative to you as you are to us!

You may be surprised to discover that there are a few people here who take sub for depression. If you search under the heading "Suboxone and Mood" you could find some interesting anecdotes.

Welcome!

I am always impressed when I see medical professionals with no history of addiction taking the initiative to join our forum and learn how to better understand our issues. It shows a great compassion and desire to help on your part. A great big welcome from me!
