This study may be for you!
Our research team is looking to see whether a newly developed therapeutic treatment can help people manage both chronic pain and recovery medications like Suboxone. We need your help in testing out this new therapy.
Chronic pain affects a lot of people, and managing chronic pain creates unique challenges for people in recovery from opioids. Your pain can be treated in many ways. By communicating your physical, mental, and emotional health with your provider, they can develop a pain management plan that fits with your lifestyle which may include buprenorphine.
Our study lasts for 12 months and can be done completely remotely, no in-person visits required. As a thank you, you can earn up to $500 for your time.
You may be eligible if you:
- Are at least 18 years old and live within the United States
- Have chronic pain.
- Had problems with opioid use in the past 12 months.
- Began buprenorphine treatment in the last 6 months.
To determine whether you qualify, we will ask questions about your treatment, substance use, and pain experience. These questions will take about 5 minutes to answer. Please scan the QR code to complete our eligibility screener, or click here.

I’ve got lots of patients on buprenorphine for pain either with or without history of problems with opioids…other than doses no one wishes to continue.
My experience has been good for half , fair for a third, and poor for the rest. neuropathic pain seems to be the best.
People with lots of side effects or wearing off on short acting opioids seem to like it better.
I have been on suboxone for over 18 years. i cannot stand it. it dulls my personality, my zest for life has gone away, it doesn’t not help at all with my chronic back pain, i got on them because of my misuse of painkillers so my dr from detox put me on it and i have never gotten off. you can’t get off which is something they don’t tell you as it is a million times more powerful than any opiate, except you don’t get high or feel it. getting off is close to impossible. i only know one person that got off and he was in withdrawl for one year – literally. the worst was the first 4 months. then slowly it got a tiny bit better until after a year. agony to get off of and any honest doctor who knows what they are doing will tell you it is the most difficult drug to get off of since they only developed it about 20 years ago and never thought or knew about the consequences, long term damage it may cause, or how to get their patients off. if you have to take it start with a very low dose of the injection form they are now giving if you can. or at least try and taper down enough to go on a low dose of the injection. then my dr just told me that the only way he heard the way other addiction treatment doctors have tried to get their patients off suboxone is slowly slowly tapering them down on the injection and then stop; you go into the worst withdrawls like you are dying. they give you lots of benzos to calm you down and make you sleep as much as possible through it. its hell. i wish i never got on it. i hate it. if i have to get any kind of surgery done on my teeth or anywhere on my body, it is hell as i will not feel a painkiller. i have said enough. peace
