Spent 5k to walk into a rehab out of state. Rehab took my money and booted me after the 1st week due to insurance not wanting to pay. So here I was with no insurance to cover these meds, and I had to turn to the street for them. The first drug rehab tried me on made me have horrible hallucinations (subutex?) but the day they put me on Suboxone was the day I got my life back. I used Suboxone for 2 weeks straight to get off the drug and now I only use 1/4 piece of strip as maintenance when I crave every so often. While Suboxone doesn't make me high, I can't take it at night because it keeps me up all night. This drug is a life saver for those who use it properly and who are determined to get clean. You can get strips on the street for $10-15 each where I live and even though it isn't right to purchase the meds off the street, it's better than a $260 a day habit on Roxi ($30 street value per pill) that I had before taking Suboxone.
I almost lost everything due to my addiction but now I am proud to say that after 14 months of remaining clean and sober, I finally have money in the bank and a much better relationship with myself and family than ever before.
I am a 40 year old female, two children, married and a grandson.
