im curious if you saw recently on the Dr Phil show where a man was on Sub for a year and got off because he said he was getting addicted? The addiction specialist/Dr said he shouldnt have gotten off. That the brain can take years to heal and as its healing you should take the sub to make sure you dont go back to opiates. And he thought the guy should go back on subs although he had weened off after a year of use! What do you think of this? Know wonder everyone is so confused there is so many opposite opinions of what to do!

there are more but these 2 came to mind because of how resent they where in my opinion
both sub and methadone are over prescribed and people wind up on them from being scared of the withdrawals your fare better off to get of you DOC then to go one ether one of these drugs.........Gnarly
