New Book for Suboxone Users Features 16 Practical Tips that Ensure Successful Treatment with the Drug


SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 15, 2013 – Responding to the epidemic of opiate addiction in America, physicians are treating an increasing number of opiate-addicted patients with the buprenorphine-containing drug Suboxone.  This drug currently represents the frontline of treating opiate addiction, and in recent years its therapeutic use has been increasing at a fast rate.  However, many patients who are put on buprenorphine are not adequately educated on use of the drug.
In an effort to address this problem, and to answer some of the most common questions these buprenorphine-using patients have, author Sebastian Enfield recently published his book, Suboxone: 16 Practical Tips for Successful Buprenorphine Treatment (  Enfield is well-qualified to write the book: according to Enfield, he was one of those patients who was placed on buprenorphine after struggling with opiate addiction for several years.  And when he started looking for answers to what he thought were fairly common questions, he kept getting contradictory answers to several of those questions. 
According to Enfield, “I felt fortunate to be treated with Suboxone.  But as my treatment progressed, I started wondering how long I would need to take the drug, which elements of my overall treatment I should be paying most attention to, and how I could taper off the drug successfully when the time came.”  As Enfield explains, he queried several physicians and conducted a great deal of research about these matters.  But as he went about this research Enfield found there were a great number of different and often conflicting opinions on such questions.
In an effort to make sense of it all, and particularly to summarize his findings in an easy-to-understand way that would help other buprenorphine users, Enfield spent the next year writing a book that would address all these issues.  As Enfield describes it, readers of this book will:

  • Understand how a person should go about choosing a Suboxone-prescribing doctor
  • Gain a better understanding of whether short-term or long-term use of buprenorphine is most appropriate
  • Learn how any individual, should they decide to taper off the drug, can do so with a minimal amount of discomfort
  • Be educated as to the available options when it comes to paying for what can sometimes be expensive treatment
  • Be introduced to what Enfield calls “lifestyle hacks” that, together, serve to make the overall addiction treatment process much more successful

In addition, Enfield shares his own personal story in the book, and provides a sound overall framework that he claims will help any user of buprenorphine make the most of their treatment.
