I took opioids for 20 years, got in trouble with law mid 2019, and was sentenced to drug court late 2019 after serving 6 months for unrelated charges. So when I got out I was "clean" and free from opioid dependence for the first time in many years. However the mental addiction was still there. Even though I was subjected to 2 drug tests a week, I would still take opioids occasionally. I would get away with most of the tests, but after 9 months of using about 2 times a month I finally got caught. They gave me an ultimatum. So I chose medical assisted treatment. I got on Sublocade, even though I wasn't physically dependent. That was 4 months ago. It works good to cut my cravings, but I still have days where I will have them. The injection is different from the films.
With the films, you can use right away, and then wait until you're sick to re-take your film. With the injection, you'll go into precipitated withdrawal, because its slowly released at all times, so that makes it so I won't use whatsoever. 2 things, the injection is painful. I have a 6 pack, so very little fat to inject into. So I will have injection issues, soreness, redness, tenderness, itching.. It's pretty painful initially, then mildish pain throughout the month. So if you're skinny with little stomach fat, just know that the injections will suck and you'll have discomfort throughout the month. Secondly, I don't know what's going to happen when I stop Sublocade. My doc explained it that the withdrawal would be minimal because it slowly releases the dose. But I know I will be have opioids laying around just in case any wd symptoms occur.
