EXACTLY thank you. Its not unsafe, its just some legal nonsense.
And suboxone can actually be taken for the rest of your life. It totally depends on the individual and their circumstances. It can be used short-term for withdrawal or long-term (months, years, forever) for maintenance, meaning to help you stay clean. I have chronic serious back pain, I need to address that after the baby is born and once I am able to find another way to deal with the pain or if my back issue is resolved (I pray it is!) then I will try to get off again. Addiction is not a simple thing and I am thankful that suboxone has worked so very well for me. Opiate addiction is physical and mental, mentally I feel wonderful with no desire to use and the suboxone/subutex deals with my brain!
