My husband has been on methadone at a local clinic, drug tested often, never failed a test, unemployed...want info to get into a Dr's care, cost(no insurance), assistance program, etc. There's suppose to be counseling,individual/family...I'm very proud of his success...especially since he's pretty much on his own. They supply the demand, take money....that's about it. Please help, we don't know where to start. Thx

I am in albama and goi to a clinic. Sorry, once you go to a clinic you are labled an ADDICT. its in the Alabama prescription Database. A regular doctor cannot write methadone for addiction,, but he can for pain. Unfortunately you went to a clin FIRST and he is now labeled an addict and a regular doctor wont TOUCH him with methadone, They can have their license pulled. If if were that easy dont you think EVERYONE would be going to a regular doctor,, paying for an office vist of $75 and then getting an RX for methadone fo 300 tablets,, say 10 a day 100 mg average dose, is only $25 at the drug store.. It's not that easy. Doesn't work like that, If he has medicaid they should pay for it,, if not sign up for OBAMACARE and HOPE your clinic will take it eventually, right now they are afraid to, but that is about to change since I am suing their ass. Go to sgn up for obamacare
