I am a particular person in long-expression restoration from drug dependence opiates. I am also a entertainer singer, songwriter that has committed my daily life to try out to get rid of the stigma related with “the illness of dependancy” and to present that men and women can and do recovery and can guide a constructive and effective existence and can be a contributing member of there community and culture. I am one particular person among thousands and thousands who are successfully dwelling as optimistic, contributing customers in communities across the country.
There is a new “Wonder Pill” known as Suboxone (buprenorphine) now obtainable to us that has been proven effective in treating opiate dependency. It is the initial medication to be authorized by the Fda to treat opiate dependency in over twenty years.
In the mid 90’s I became addicted to Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Loritab). As time went by my dependancy grew to the stage that I was performing unlawful things to feed my behavior. I experimented with a number of ways to get over and kick this dependancy, although my daily life and my partnership with household and profession was rapidly likely down the drain.
Admitting that I experienced a problem and my daily life now out of my management I wanted my lifestyle again and to be cost-free of this habit, so I turned to Methadone treatment method. Even though I was in methadone treatment I felt like I was chained to a clinic (which I was) and although I wasn’t undertaking unlawful items to deal with my Disease of Addiction to Opiates my lifestyle was like on maintain. I was not performing everything for myself or my family or my career besides current. My lifestyle consisted of making sure I had the funds to go to the clinic and that I could get there “Every Day” for the duration of the 3 several hours they ended up open! Having a holiday or likely out of town for the weekend was not achievable simply because I was chained to the clinic.
My life was no longer “My Life” it was so controlled that I lived everyday for my excursion the clinic and my job in the Tunes Business was just a memory.
In late 2004 I experienced listened to about Suboxone (Buprenorphine) by way of other sufferers at the methadone clinic. Following hearing rumors via the clinic about this new found drugs I was ready for a change.
In Jan. 2005 I found a Physician who had just commenced a Suboxone treatment method system. I was the 2nd affected person to join. I was so fired up about this possible “New” therapy obtainable, and the hope of perhaps receiving back again management of my daily life and becoming free of Methadone or obtaining to go to a Methadone clinic everyday sounded also excellent to be accurate!
January 2005 I started the Suboxone (Buprenorphine) Treatment method. Soon after likely 3 times without methadone I was unwell and wanted my methadone again.
My first working day on Suboxone, (Buprenorphine) I felt some aid but I was still ill and seeking my methadone back. On the next working day just before I took my 2nd dose of Buprenorphine I had confident myself I needed to remain on methadone (I was still not experience well) but I hung in there.
Soon after that third day on Suboxone, methadone never ever entered my mind, besides remembering all the time I had lost although in methadone treatment (five a long time).
Inside two month’s of being free of charge of methadone and now having this “miracle capsule”, Suboxone I was back to my outdated self and pursuing my music profession like by no means ahead of, my family members life was back like prior to and within two month’s I experienced a recording contract and was now in song variety for my “New CD”, “Livin’ Like A Millionaire (ain’t received a dime” with Grammy Award Winning Producer, Larry Butler (Kenny Rogers, Johnny Funds, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, to title just a number of).
Right after ending what was to be Recovery and reflecting on how my life experienced changed in such a brief time for me (thanks to Buprenorphine) I went back again in the studio and recorded a song, “Very first Hand” and I have fully commited a hundred% of this music to drug rehabilitation plans.
I would like to see Suboxone (Buprenorphine) a family name and readily accessible to any person needing it.
I am and will be permanently grateful for Suboxone (Buprenorphine).
For the record, with Suboxone YOU ARE NOT Trading One particular Higher FOR An additional!
