Taking medication for addiction seems like pouring gasoline on a fire.
Say someone was taking Suboxone, Valium, Clonidine.

Aren't these medicines as abusive as any others?
These can be abused just like any other drugs.

Also, how does a person get off of these things? Clonodine is what Dr.'s use to take people off of opiate and benzodiazepine abuse.

They also tear relationships apart, any opinions?

Take the Poll

2. Stopping the medicines changes the person, can someone
stop and stay with their current partner?
