Hey NeedHelp, I use to live in MI too and I lived in Northern Michigan and had the same trouble as you. You have to to ask your self first, how bad do you want to get off the pain killers. Methadone is a great way to stop craving the other drugs you use and saves you a lot of money while keeping you off the street drugs. You are going to have to check your area in the U.P. because I dont know about that far up but it is very possible that there is a clinic.
If there is not a clinic you are going to have to call and find one and then go in and sit down with the councler and explain your situatiuon and let them know how seriuos you are about doing this and they really are good with working with you.
At first they will want you to come in every day for a month nut like I said , in your case they may start you at bi-weekly and just make sure to stay clean and pass your UA's.
This is what worked for me, I drove from Antrim to Grand Rapids and let them know how serioous about changing my life I was and within 2 months I was on bi-weekly and it has been great.
Also if you have insurance there is the option of going to the doctor and explaining that you are in a clinic and they are making you drive every day and it is too far and you might be suprised how the doc will work with you and the clinic.
But first of all really check your area because their might be one somewhere by you.
If you need anymore help with anything post again and give me your e-mail and I can tell you much more about the clinics and how they are run. I have a lot of experience in this matter. Good Luck Buddy

Nick B. Methadone does not require in-patient treatment. Call your nearest local methadone clinic. Or, You nac try a Buprenorphine appreved MD.

To locate one nearby... Try this locator.

Methadone is one bear to get off of. I've been in a clinic for almost 4 years now at 75mg/day. I was on REALLY high dosages of oxy/day (Over 240mg/day for years). I probably blew $100,000 with trips to Mexico, local pain clinic quack (who got busted for oxy dealing LOL). It works great to stop cravings and withdrawal. BUT:
1.) You can't get private health insurance if you tell (or the insurance company finds out) them you are in a Methadone Clinic.
2.) After years, you can still have to go the clinic a few times a week.
3.) Expensive -- $91/week for a drug that's practically free.
4.) Can't get a security clearance. Not that most people worry about that.
It's a good thing, but if I had to do it all over, I'd go find another pain clinic. Back pain: Most people have something wrong on an MRI.

Rather than using Methadone, many people are having much better luck beating their addictions with Suboxone, which contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine.

Unlike Methadone, which often requires a lifetime maintenance dose, most people on Suboxone eventually end up completely drug free.

It is an opiate, so it may cause side effects such as: drowsiness, nausea, dizziness and dry mouth.

To see if there is a doctor trained in its use in your area, you can check:

Suboxone.com

Is there anything else I can help you with?

I'm currently taking 80MG Oxycotin 3-4 times a day, roxicodone 30MG about 10-15 times a day, and I'm seriously going to die soon. The reason I get all these pain medications is because I was in a horrible automobile accident, and I'm lucky to be alive, but I live everyday in a great deal of pain. I've tried Subutex, and Suboxone, both of which failed because of the celing effect they have, I needed something a lot more powerfull for pain, but I seriously can't keep taking this much Oxycotin and Norco, roxi's, ect.. I was on Methadone 10MG tabs when I lived in Long Beach, but I now live in San Diego, and all I've been able to find down here are the clinic's, would someone please, please help me if they know of a Doctor in or near San Diego, that will presribe methadone, or somewhere I can get it, you would save my life. You can email me tables06 at yahoo dot com please I need something or I'm going to die very soon.

-Thank you.
Tommy

pain please help Says:
 
I live in NY-Long Island and I'm in search of a doctor who will prescribe methadone for chronic back pain from herniated discs. I have tried everything with the exception of surgery, and methadone is the only thing that seems to work. I don't want to go to a clinic, just to a private doc who will prescribe it for me. If anyone knows of any docs that can help, I would greatly appreciate any information you can provide me with. Thanks for listening.

Ive been on methadone for 3 years.Im beginning to think it's starting to be a $maker for somebody. The meds are cheap to manufactor. But I spent over $5500 in one year going to licensed-by-the-state clinics.
Does it really have to be this expensive? I need this medication to function and work.
I hope someone hears my plea and does something to bring the costs of the drug down to where the American worker can afford it.

I got a better idea, why don't you all GET OFF DRUGS period. You all make it seem like a poor pity party almost to the point that you are owed something. Who are you fooling? You got hooked on drugs and now you want a cheaper way to get high? Cry how Methadone is too expensive - guess what, I don't use ANY DRUGS and it is VERY CHEAP FOR ME - Free even. What an amazing concept. I feel absolutely no pity for any of you. Whether you go illegal or legal drugs, all you are is a junkie looking for your next fix. God help each of you.

HEY post #15.... WOW!!!! My response to that ridiculous comment or casting of the stone is...... judge not. I'd really be interested in finding anyone in this world without someone making another feel like less of a person or at fault for being in need of pain management. I guess you know the person you were so quick to judge?? I'm sure the life you're living is without reproach... rhetorical; I'm sure you think not. I have one question... where's your weakness or regret in life? Could it be overeating, working while neglecting the ones that need you, drinking and calling it social, sexual addiction.... , perhaps it's physical or verbal abuse towards others; or is it just simply making others feel bad? ( I think that could be it, abusing others with your tude
Your post was truly offensive. It's good to know there's people that can just close there eye's at night and sleep without any thought about the pain they cause to others. I don't wish your gift friend'; sarcastic....????

YOU BETCHA!!!!
