In October of 1989 I was involved in a bad accident which led to cornea transplants, two neck surgeries, left rotator cuff surgery and eight lipthotrispy treatments for kidney stones. Going through this journey I was on pain medication the whole time for several years. I went to rehab three times which only worked a short time. I was at my wits end when suboxone was approved for opiate recovery treatment. I have been on suboxone for a while and really enjoying being sober. So for anyone out there that thinks there are no options there are options. Suboxone and Subutex works very well

Its very effective and potent drug. But it should be taken only if prescribed by health practitioner.
Take care
