Yep...certainly see it in practice but by no means a universal finding. Some good theory/findings here:

For clarification are you saying they stop drinking when they start using opioids ... or when they have their opioid dependence treated? My experience is a few patients who tell me they lost their desire to drink when we started Suboxone.

Welcome Gordon (or Clark?)

Yes, I have also noticed this. It is simply trading one substance of abuse for another.

Also, you will notice that on this board the replies do not get posted immediately. Sometimes it will be weeks before I see my responses posted. Sometimes I will get email notification of posts that are 3 years old! Strange board this is, but extremely helpful.
