Difficult question: Possibly you could take Suboxone but are you ready to by responsible to take it yourself? Would you decide not to take it and go out and use? Suboxone works and is well tolerated but you have to be in a structured Aida program and know you are ready because you have a lot of responsibility with subozone .
