Every day this blog gets hits from people interested in Suboxone, which is a drug made from buprenorphine and naloxone that is used to treat opioid dependence. It’s ridiculous in a way, because I’ve previously only posted *one* item on Suboxone and it was nothing but a link to a news story about the difficulties involved in finding Suboxone treatment. In other words, I should not be showing up high on search engines, because the info on this blog is neither detailed nor particularly useful when it comes to Suboxone.
More importantly, I don’t plan on writing a whole lot more about Suboxone because there isn’t much of a legal controversy around it. Here, therefore, are some other websites that will be more useful on this subject:
The National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment, and in particular its discussion board. That website also has a ton of info that can be useful for physicicans who are interested in offering Suboxone treatment to individuals.
Erowid has a number of first-hand accounts from users of buprenorphine and Suboxone — both people who have screwed their lives using opioids recreationally and people who have used Suboxone to get their lives back in control again.
And as mundane as it may seem, suboxone.com from Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturers of Suboxone, has quite a bit of good background information as well.
