Thank you, Dee and everyone one else out there.

I'm actually a Dad of 2 boys 19 & 21 who both got hooked on Oxy, everything went down hill from there. Both have been in and out of detoxe only to relapse, time after time. They just started a suboxone and counseling program and have different side effects which I'm reading about on here. Thank you.

A nephew of mine has been on the program for 6 months now and is having very good luck with it. (I still wonder how's it going to end?)

I was against the suboxone program for a few reasons, the main one is where's it end? Isn't like being addicted from 1 drug to another? Plus all the councilors and friends giving me all types of advise. "tough Love" "rock bottom" "6 month's in rehab" talk about being confused and I'm supposedly the straight one..lol.
Then I took a different approach and looked at it like depression disorder, which unfortunately I know a little about. My mom was bi-polar. They called it maniac depressant back in her day.

Its really hard for me, my girl friend, my ex wife, with all the lying, steeling, different attitudes, running up high credit cards, up all night, sleeping all day.

I get frustrated, aggravated to the point where I say thats it, I'm all done. Let'em live on the street. But after a good night sleep and a day of thinking that feeling goes away. I still feel when I talk to them I'm talking to a drug and not my children. They lost my trust, but not my love.... Now I'm ready for counseling.

On a differant subject, 7 years ago I had a young employee who served 4 years of his apprenticeship with us. He was a really good, smart kid then it happened he got hooked on oxy. Unfortunitly he's no longer with us which is sad and leads me the following.

I thought Oxycodine was designed for cancer patents but feel very strongly its way too addicting for anyone. Just wish the pharmaceutical companies could make it less addicting? Is this all about money and not people's live's?????

Good luck and keep the peace

Don

Hello Don,

Boy, you have had it from all sides! It's true about society and the whole world of scientists don't have a decent way of detoxing a person once they have been addicted. I was put in a hospitol once and given 20 milligrams of Methadone and tapered down five milligrams a day till I wasn't given anything. This was for a person who was doing five 80 milligrams of Oxycontin a day. Needless to say, I left the hospitol and chewed up some Oxycontin on the way home. No brag...just couldn't help myself. I read years ago Heroin was used to detox from Morphine.

By the way, I'm Barbara one of the moderators. I've been on Suboxone for going on three years and down to 4 milligrams a day. There is a window of opportunity when tapering down from Suboxone. It's written on our forum by our Administrator, Deborah. Some people can taper off successfully and some of us have done so much damage to our system, we are on for life. I'd like to think I can taper off for good soon.

Please do stay with us for as long as you can. You make a lot of sense and would like to get your input for the sake of us trying to find relief. You're a good person to be helpful to so many people.

Yours in the struggle,
Barbara

Hi don,
You will hear a lot of advice on how you should talk to and treat an addict. Many people out there still believe addiction is a "Moral Issue" but through years of research it has been discovered that Addiction is a disease. It is a disease of the brain.
Is Suboxone just trading one drug for another? No.
With Suboxone you are managing a disease.
Just as with insulin you are managing Diabetes. Last year I suffered two heart attacks and discovered that I suffer from heat disease. I take medication to manage that. I also take thyroid medication to manage hypothyroidism.

I am glad that you have decided to join us.
If you ever have any questions or doubts, please post and let us know.
Education, is the key to a successful recovery. Education for not only the recovering addict but the family and friends as well.
Please read out websites. Both of them. They are both HonCode Certified, the information that you will find there is the most accurate information that you can find.
Once again.... Welcome
Yours In Recovery,
Dee

Thanks Barbara ,
3 years on suboxine. How you feeling, physically and mentally?
I feel my families on a long road for recovery.

Hi Don,

I'm in hopes you haven't left yet...most days I'm okay. I do have spirts of depression when things pile up. I can be around my Mother when she's being negative and have a panic attack. I still have ups and downs. You'll hear this many times...everybody is different in their recovery.

Good luck to you and your family.

Have a safe Memorial Day
Yours in the struggle,
Barbara
