Hey opana,
The question I have is are you ready the whole recovery thing..
Meaning what else are you doing for recovery?
Honestly, I'm not crazy about putting kids on this med unless all else has failed...
Everyone is different though.. It is the people you hang with, the places you go. All of that.
Are you in school,? Working? Anything that will help you move forward..
Subs great for stopping cravings, we all needed help with this. Hope it is working out for you.
How is it working for you??

Hey Opana,

I remember having the same thought when I wanted to get clean. If you're 19 then there aren't any age restrictions. I was 18 when I was prescribed Suboxone and from what I remember I think you can even be younger than that by a year or 2 (not a 100% about that part though).

If this is your first time trying to get clean you may not want to go on Suboxone just yet. There are a lot of other deciding factors beyond age like how long you've been using and how much.
