But Not The Answer To Ending Addiction
Clients who choose this are usually looking for the easy way out and doctors sell them suboxone as a quick fix because it’s a huge money maker. This point is proven by the number of doctors and clinics that are supporting this very addictive product. It allows patients to function somewhat in the outside world without going into a residential treatment center.
At the end of the day, suboxone is still a drug that people have to rely on daily. They become physically dependent on it. They become a “slave” to it, just like with their other drug/s of choice in terms of time spent, money spent, planning around having it with them for trips or at work. The temptation to go back to the drug of choice is too great for several reasons. Suboxone is expensive and people find out soon that they can make money off of it (selling it on the street) and use the money to buy less expensive heroin or pills.
At Bayshore Retreat, our natural, holistic approach helps clients rid themselves of the physical need and they feel empowered when we tell them they can do it without a crutch. It gives them control of their life and confidence again. by Stephanie Aldridge (Bayshore Retreat LMHC) Oct. 24, 2014
