Excellent resource for patients new to Suboxone and friends and family of addicts using this new drug. It's very frustrating trying to explain to those unfamiliar with MAT, (medication-assisted treatment) which is almost everyone, including doctors, who are unfamiliar with it. I've been on it for several years, and due to chronic medical conditions, will probably be on it the rest of my life. It's difficult to explain to my family that it's like taking insulin for diabetes or high-blood pressure medication; that it is a long-term treatment for a lifetime condition. There is such a stigma, especially in the abstinence-only treatment community and the medical community outside the few doctors familiar with MAT, associated with long-term use of medications like Suboxone and methadone, that it's almost like, even though one has been in recovery for years, that we have a dirty little secret. Books like this help to dispel that stigma, and anything that can show the larger world that medication-assisted recovery is "REAL" recovery is a wonderful thing.

Good information but I don't believe in using suboxone to get off drugs, even if it's supposed to be a medium to save ones life while trying to get clean. Don't know what the answer is, but don't think this is it because you can become addicted to suboxone too.

This book is very helpful and easy to read. It gives hope to those struggling, and provides clarification about how suboxone helps people get their lives back. I highly recommend this book to people struggling themselves, or for those who are supporting someone in their journey

I've had many friends use suboxone but i never really understood the mechanisms by which it works. Great first read on this subject.
