 Post subject: Methadone vs abstinence - an insightful video from the 80's
PostPosted: Sun Dec 03, 2017 8:35 am 
Here's a video featuring Dr Judianne Jensen Gerber, the controversial NY psychiatrist who started Odyssey House, debating with a proponent of methadone maintenance.

What strikes me about this debate and feature, focusing on heroin addiction treatment modalities, is how little has changed from the 1980's to present. The ONLY new treatment that's come about since then is the advent of buprenorphine treatment, which is really not much different to methadone in the aim of treatment, ...

 Post subject: Suboxone no longer helping for Lyme Disease pain
PostPosted: Fri Jul 08, 2016 5:37 pm 
I want to start off by saying I did not start Suboxone because I was an opiate addict. However, I was a coke/weed/alcoholic, and so my dr thought that it would be the best way to treat my pain while also preventing me from addiction (I should have never told him) :x

I am on 12 mg Suboxone (4 mg, three times) a day and it just ...

 Post subject: Would Methadone be a better choice for me???
PostPosted: Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:06 pm 
I have been on Suboxone for two years. The first year I would go on 3 day vacations every month, got to be less but I still did it. Then I started taking benzos & Gabapentin with it because I DO suffer from anxiety(bad) and it gave Subs what it was missing to(me always wanting to go and shoot up some Oxy, Dillies, Morphine or eat handfulls of Norcos or Percocets) Now, I've got to ...

 Post subject: Switching from Methadone to Suboxone using Heroin; Possible?
PostPosted: Wed Dec 17, 2014 1:27 am 
Hello everyone. i am a long time silent observer (since 2012) of this forum.

So like thousands of other opiate addicts, i was quickly ushered down the road to a cheaper, better fix to my Oxy withdrawals... HEROIN! It ...
