Hello-
I'm Dr. Kara Ayers and I lead a bi-weekly therapy group for people engaged in a local Suboxone program. I'm learning about the many different perspectives on the drug and bring my own unique perspective to the issue as well. I have a permanent disability that causes chronic pain. I've noticed that many people share a common experience as what may have started their path to opiates. In addition to my role as a therapist, I'm also a writer. I'm writing an article for New Mobility Magazine (a paper magazine that's also available online) and I need to find people who both use a wheelchair and take Suboxone to interview for the article. I know this is quite specific (and that many people with disabilities on Suboxone might not necessarily use a wheelchair most of the time) but the magazine has requested a very specific profile for interviews. Do you or someone you know meet this criteria and would you be willing to speak to me for a brief interview on your experience?
I feel like there are many more people with disabilities struggling with addiction than we even know...very few have even heard of Suboxone. I hope this article will bring awareness and give more people more choices. Please respond to this thread or feel free to email me at writekara at gmail dot com. Thank-you so much for your time and I'm happy to see such a supportive community exists.
