It is with great pleasure that I announce the creation of The Suboxone Help Spot. This Suboxone support forum was created with the intention of providing a place for anyone associated with Suboxone to find the information and the support that they need.
So who is “anyone associated with Suboxone”? This would include active addicts who are contemplating beginning Suboxone treatment, those recovering addicts who are currently in Suboxone treatment, Methadone patients who are trying to make the switch over to Suboxone treatment, and also those who have loved ones that are on a Suboxone treatment program.
So, why would someone who did not utilize Suboxone in their own recovery from opioid addiction choose to create a Suboxone support forum for others? Hmmm. It all started with a little post I did about the media dubbing Suboxone a miracle pill. In this post I mostly talked about the downside to Suboxone. I brought up the fact that I myself had bought Suboxone on the street when still in my active addiction days and just how common a scenario that is.
Mostly the article was about how important I think it is to be taking Suboxone in conjunction with a very strong recovery program. I got some really great responses to this article which included both sides of the issue. Those who were taking Suboxone along with being involved in a recovery program (either on their own or affiliated with a twelve step program) and those who were just kind of taking the Suboxone and hoping for the best.
Instead of just pointing out the problem, I wanted to be part of the solution. The Suboxone Help Spot was created in an effort to provide a place of support for those who are using Suboxone as part of their recovery program.
The Suboxone Help Spot is a place where those who have opted for a medically assisted recovery program can come and be completely open and honest about their recovery without the fear of being judged by those who do not agree with this type of recovery approach.
It is my firm belief that any good addiction recovery program is based on sharing and identifying with others that know what it is you are going through. I’m hoping that The Suboxone Help Spot can aid in that aspect of recovery for those who need it.
I would also like to take this time to thank those like TDA who has helped out by mentioning (and linking to) The Suboxone Help Spot in a great article he wrote about Alcohol and Substance Abuse Advocacy. There was also an excellent mention of The Suboxone Help Spot courtesy of PainPainGoAway who is doing some really great vlog posts about Suboxone.
It’s kind of tough in the beginning to get a new website on the map so help like this is much appreciated (hint, hint, to anyone with a site). So far The Suboxone Help Spot has 11 members…woohoo! I am constantly looking for ways to increase membership and any help anyone can give is much appreciated.
