Suboxone while Working Part of the Year in Canada

    I am opiate addicted but ready to quit the lifestyle. I am an American but I work in Canada for periods of up to 2 to 3 months at a time in the logging industry. In the past, I have had no problem scoring dope while up north, but this time I actually want to stay clean.

    I am thinking about Suboxone but I have to go up north again in about 6 weeks. Will a doctor be able to prescribe me enough Suboxone to last me for my work abroad periods?

    Will I have a problem getting it across the border? It would be ironic if I managed to avoid arrest after years of scoring dope only to get arrested for trying to get clean…

    You should be able to bring legitimately prescribed drugs into Canada. Be sure to keep them in their original packaging and bring a copy of your original prescription from your doctor.  Suboxone is prescribed in Canada as well, so you might consider finding a doctor there just in case you are delayed in your travels or somehow lose them.
