Sounds like an addic: To me. It's not up to you to decide if he has a problem. This is about him. Sounds like he does. Suboxone is no panacea. He will not feel high. People fail therapy if not motivated. Drug addiction kills people. Every day. Support him and help him get help if he needs it. Go to meetings with him. Suboxone is a way to get off opiates. Then get off the suboxone. Get into a good life. Be well. ...Read more

Addiction is when you do it more and more, and it helps less and less but causes more and more problems, AND you don't stop. ...Read more
