If you haven’t seen it yet, check out my first piece for, talking about two sides of the buprenorphine (Suboxone) treatment issue.

There is more complexity to this issue—more sides to it than just two, and I hope to follow up on that complexity in future stories.

I’m grateful to my two patient sources, folks who emailed me after having read this blog, who agreed to be interviewed for this piece—as well as to the physicians who gave their candid comments and their time…

Looking forward to hearing what y’all think.


  1. WOWWWZA…I know, not very eloquent for a writer myself, but thats all I got after finding you. I am also in recovery…I have recently safely & successfully tapered off of methadone after being a patient for 14 years. its been quite a journey. Im spoiled beyond. Im an artist & writer. But my real passion is coming back to the Clinic that gave me back a really good life after being a predator of heroin & Ive become a NAMA Patient Advocate. Thank you…for your voice, your purpose & for putting yourself out here so others can feel the freedom of being the best we can be even when were needing to be on a medication. I bow to you…
    My name is Kat & Im completely inspired. You ROCK!
