8 mg oral Naloxone (daily)
  2 mg oral Pharms - Buprenorphine (daily)
I was a opiate addict for ten years. Mostly vicodin at first, and eventually graduated to Heroin. I was using Heroin intravenously for 3 years before going to rehab. After rehab I started the Suboxone program. Taking 2 8mg pills daily. Being the addict I was I quickly realized I could shoot the Suboxone! This realization led to 5 years of Sub abuse! This behavior cost me Alot! I was kicked out of my parents house, lost my job, and lot of other terrible things all for my love of the needle.

Recently I was prescribed the Suboxone Film. I just wanted to say that it has freed me of the last chain to my past. Yes, I know that some people will still abuse this miracle drug but for me the transition has been life changing. I feel the effects as quickly as if I were shooting it and even more potently I believe. And the best part? No NEEDLE. No risk of infection, arrest, or other damage to my life and health.
