    Aside from taking this medication to treat drug addiction, counseling will further help in the recovery process. Eventually, everything will be alright with the moral support obtained by patients.

    Good article, although medication assisted therapy is a great aid, It is not the total answer and I agree that counseling, family therapy and 12 step groups, group therapy are needed as well!

    My hubby has been on Suboxone for 9 years. This sucks and it has ruined our life and marriage. Legal government drug dealing and Big Pharma SUCKS!!!

      There is nothing wrong with staying on Suboxone forever if it is what stops your husband from abusing drugs and possibly overdosing and dying or going to jail. I have been on it 10 years. I take a small dose once a day. I have a life, a job and a family including a wife and two children. I live my life just like everyone else does, except I take a strip once a day. What’s the big deal unless your husband is still abusing other drugs? We don’t expect people who are diabetic to go without their insulin for their chronic condition. Why do you expect differently from your husband, who also had a chronic condition?
