This medication I believe indeed help save my life.....if only my 35 year old daughter had stayed with the same treatment program w/ Suboxone and counseling we would not have lost her in 2010 due to liver failure caused by the excessive abuse of opiates leaving behind her 3 precious children to keep asking themselves "why?"
