Inspiring, touching, and UNDERSTANDING those who want SOBRIETY!

Hi all,

I just wanted to share this with you today, as most of you know I speak at a rehab hospital every month about my book and experience with drugs as well as what happened to me in Iran.  I usually get one or two war vets and last month one came to me with tears in his eyes.  He had lost his buddy in Iraq and suffered from PTSD *which I do too.  And he told me my talk was so inspiring and helpful that it motivated him to definitely get out of this slouch and take his life back.  That made me feel better than any book profits.  I sell my book at this rehab clinic but all the money goes to the clinic to help support long term rehab.  This is a letter I got from the supervisor at the clinic about last months talk.

Hi Lori,

I just have to tell you the your name is all over our patient surveys,  They loved your talk!!  With that being said I would like to put you down as a regular speaker in the rehab building.  One reason is you will get to talk to more people and the other is I am not scheduling very many at Partial anymore.  So can I put you down for the first Saturday of every month to speak in rehab?  We will be sure to have your book displayed on our front display the next time you come in.

Thank you

 

THIS MEANT SO MUCH TO ME, MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE AND I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE.  THANK YOU, LORI

Suboxone…my WONDER DRUG for addiction!

Suboxone is a relatively new drug for addiction.  I was first prescribed it in rehab in October 2008.  I couldn’t believe it!!!   I had NO WITHDRAWALS and it gave me this overall “calmness”.  It might not do this for everyone but I guarantee you if you use it you will know the difference between this and the traditional Methadone.  Suboxone is a NARCOTIC, but it works two ways, it has an opoid in it, then it has another ingredient that counteracts the “HIGH” feeling you get from opiates.  It also will cause withdrawals if you try to take another opiate with it.

YOU HAVE TO TRY IT TO BELIEVE IT, and it might not work the same on everyone.  The opiod it contains is strong so it will help with any pain you are having.  Matter of fact they are using it on cancer patients and is working better than MORPHINE for pain.

I have found some helpful information for you and the links are below.

I think if you try it you will be amazed.  It’s an orange pill that you let dissolve under your tongue and you do this one to twice daily.  I will let the experts tell you the rest:)

SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX are prescription medicines used to treat adults addicted to opioid (narcotic painkillers) medicines and drugs, such as morphine and heroin. SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX take the place of these medicines and drugs and may help you stop using and abusing them. SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX are part of a complete addiction treatment program that also includes counseling or behavioral therapy. SUBOXONE and SUBUTEX have not been studied in children.

SUBOXONE

is a tablet that contains 2 medicines.

  1. The first medicine is called buprenorphine (BYOO-pruh-NOR-feen). It is like painkiller medicines such as morphine, street drugs like heroin, and addiction treatment medicines like methadone. Buprenorphine may give you less of a “high” than these other prescription medicines and street drugs. Withdrawal or stopping buprenorphine may be easier than stopping other prescription medicines and street drugs.
  2. SUBOXONE also contains naloxone (nal-OX-own). When naloxone is injected, it blocks the effects of medicines and drugs like methadone, heroin, and morphine. Naloxone is added to SUBOXONE to stop people from injecting (“shooting-up”) SUBOXONE tablets. When you use SUBOXONE under your tongue (sublingually), as prescribed, the naloxone in SUBOXONE should not stop the medicine’s effects. However, if you inject SUBOXONE, the naloxone can give you bad withdrawal symptoms.
  3. SUBUTEX is a tablet and it contains only the medicine buprenorphine SUBUTEX is different from SUBOXONE because it does not contain naloxone.

I suggest you ask your doctor about it.  Not just any doctor can prescribe it either, they have to have a special license just to prescribe it.  So do your research. Good Luck.
