Earlier this month we worked with a family from South Carolina at our Richmond Coleman Institute office. Accompanied by his parents and younger sister, Tim (not his real name), a 27-year-old college educated young man who works in the finance world, came to us for a Medically Assisted Withdrawal off Suboxone®.
Four years earlier, after struggling to stop using prescription Pain Pills (Roxicodone®, Percocet, and Opana), he easily found a doctor who was quick to prescribe Suboxone®. Indeed, with the buprenorphine and naloxone provided by the Suboxone®, his cravings for short-acting pain pills was gone. The doctor saw him each month and regularly prescribed him 30-60 8/2mg sublingual strips. He told him to use one or two a day, as needed.
