I agree. I was on methadone for about 8 months and made the switch to Suboxone and it has been great. The Suboxone helps with the pain and I don't have the cravings that I used to have. Find a doctor in your area that will prescribe it to you and good luck with your coming clean. Remember you are not alone here and people will love to help you. If you have any questions please send me an email and I would be glad to answer any questions you have. firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck
