I started using opiates actually in my late 20’s while in grad school for basically “energy” while working, going to school and helping with our son. Pretty sad I let it get so bad but I’ve been on a positive path to recovery. The Suboxone therapy in general has been the only way I’ve ever been able to stop using. I would quit and start using hundreds of times. I’ve not only learned why I turned to opiates, yet I’ve also learned how to recognize triggers and useful ways to manage external and internal stresses.
