Suboxone, Bunavail and Zubsolv curb the biological aspects of opiate-dependence, such as cravings and withdrawal; but psychological and behavioral triggers can be even stronger barriers to recovery. You can’t rely on just medication to restore life’s harmony. You have to meet the medication half-way. Perhaps the most important first step towards sobriety is surrounding yourself with a healthy support system that can help lift you up when you are feeling down.
Family and friends can be your biggest cheerleaders in recovery. But often they are also part of the problem…and even more often, they simply can’t relate to the struggles you face in maintaining abstinence from narcotics. Active Peer Support with folks who have “walked a mile in your shoes” is one of the most effective, cost-free ways to sustain sobriety. Peer-lead community support groups meet frequently throughout the metro-Phoenix area and follow either the traditional 12-step or a self-empowering approach.
