Nonsense or Bullshit –
September 12, 2018 – “I would say, like, ‘I’m Cristina. I’m on Suboxone; I’m just looking for an open bed,’ “ she says. “And they’re like, ‘We don’t take people on Suboxone.’ And they’d just hang up on me.” Rivell’s experience is not unique. And as many doctors and government agencies now consider these medical treatments part of the standard of care for opioid addiction, some are concerned that recovery houses with rigid rules prohibiting them are pushing more users into homelessness. After Rivell called around for a few days, she began to worry that would be her fate. Her mother told her she couldn’t come home. Rivell says her therapist suggested she try going off Suboxone — to have an easier time finding housing.
