I am very sorry, but if you are looking for something outside of the setting of a clinic, there is really no way to know what doctor would be willing to prescribe it.

When it comes to addiction treatment, most doctors will not provide such treatment outside of a clinic, because they do have to follow certain laws and treatment protocols, in order to be allowed to prescribe it.

Most general doctors, who are not involved in a treatment clinic, are not trained at prescribing such medications to treat addiction.

How do you know that Suboxone doesn't work for you?

Hello. Most doctors need a DEA number to prescribe schedule 2 and 3 medications. Methadone, like oxycodone and morphine or dilaudid are schedule 2. Other narcotics like codeine or hydrocodone are avg. 3. No doctor is allowed to prescribe schedule 1 drugs. LSD, or drugs that have not gone through studies/trials. Any doctor can prescribe methadone but NY and NJ require a document.

Why would a successful doctor prescribe an inexpensive long lasting pain tablet like methadone which costs 1/10th the price and has a 24 hour half-life. This country is about the pursuit of happiness(money), not the effective relief of chronic pain or those who work hard but are dependent on opoids. Your best bet is to search pain centers and others with the same problem. I live in NJ and if I find a good doctor I will let you know. Please do the same for me.

It's hard but not impossible. It sounds challenging but in 2016 attending a methadone clinic in NJ doesn't have to be the archaic torture chamber that so many people seem to HAVE HEARD for 250 a month and 2 years of clean time your free to LIVE 27 days a month unchained to qualified clinics. Misconception about modern MM treatment is very unfortunate. I personally see dozens of success stories every time I make my trek to (Asbury Park NJ )the clinic. It takes me less then an hour once a month that's 12 hours a YEAR. Really? How many hours do you waste seeing doctors,waiting at pharmacys not to mention the thousands of $'s and overwhelming stress thinking and wondering if I'll get my meds today?? Seems to me that's HANDCUFFED to the powers that be.

P.s. Most clinics offer reduced ,sliding scale or charity care for those motivated to live drug free. But methadone maintence treatment is the devil drug I hear and read about everyday at nauseam ?? I THINK NOT but that's just my EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE.

Do you have to be clean for a certain amount of time before they give you bottles or do you have to go everyday at first and if so how long? The whole thing about the clinics is the everyday trip becomes problematic. If there was a place I could go a few times a month and I could get tested locally id go as much as needed. Just can't take it everyday. Let me know!!

Freddy I have the same problem. I go to the one in Plainfield. I'm getting ready mentally to switch to Suboxone because it interferes with my job. I'm willing to cut my current dose of 70 in half if I can get a script. I would use it responsibility and go to take a drug panel once a week if I had to. The clinic is like a cattle call line. I'm just so done.

I hear you about clinics, I had a doctor for 11 years who prescribed me methadone. I never abused it. I do have pain. I went to a clinic in JC 9 hrs a week in meetings. I left and went to another; they had meetings too but not as many. I found out I had leukemia. My regular doctor told me drink lots of fluids. This clinic doctor kept accusing me of washing out my urine. Clinics put you through way too much unnecessary bulls***. Any one with a life can't deal with it, but it's mainly government interference. They have no idea what they are doing to people that need and want help, on my own again.

Yes, I'd like to find a REAL doctor, not a fly-by-night one but a real, established one with a credible reputation that has a DEA and will dispense methadone not for pain but for the reason that I simply want to get away from the program I'm on. I am clean for decades and methadone helped me to clean up my life. I've been a productive citizen for decades and will comply with every rule the doctor would have, I comply with the program I'm on. The problem is that my program has changed drastically. They don't care if I lived or died. They charge $500.00 per month. My insurance company is willing to help but they will not provide me with the correct paper work. When I try to beg/asking nicely they simply turn their backs and say we're working on it but in the meantime time is running out and the insurance company will only allow a certain amount of time past so the longer they won't help me the more my insurance won't help. BTW, they were charging me $70.00 per week and just before Thanksgiving they raised it to $120.00 per week and when they dropped that on me, I was so stunned I could not speak and they just leered at me.

My clinic raised it's price from $70.00 per week to $120.00 per week. My insurance company is willing to help but the clinic refused to help me with getting the correct forms filled out. They just turn their backs when I call and every time my day comes around to go, they just blow me off. What can I do?

Anon,

I truly feel for your situation. I wish there was a way to exchange contact information on here because I'm currently on MMT for decades like yourself but I'm blessed to have an relationship with my clinic that differs dramatically from the horror story's so
Prevalent in the MMT field.I may have some ideas that may assist but I'd need more specific information on the administrative history of this particular clinic as I volunteer as a local advocate
. What county do you dose in? What's your current phase designation ( # of takehome's ) Are you employed? And have you had a favorable complete compliance history?? If you post back I can try to point you in the right direction. I realize how stressful this situation can be . Hang in there,
Ken

I'm afraid if your seeking a private provider to prescribe methadone as a
protocol for opiod replacement therapy your search will be fruitless.Federal law prohibits the dispensing of methadone
For this purpose EXCEPT under strict
Adherence to specialized DEA standards and handling requirements. Unlike Suboxone and other ORD which
May be prescribed by specially trained
Medical prescribers out of the comfort of private practice Methadone is not.

Hi and thank you for replying. I'm afraid to tell anyone where I go because they may try to "get even" with me for bringing to light what's going on there. Like I've stated, I've been clean for decades and NEVER gave a positive test. I was abusing in the 70's. That's quite some time ago. My record is flawless and they know it. I was the highest statiss when one day, in the ladies room, I gave a monitored urine, as usual and because I take diuretics for pitting adema they tried to say I was "flushing". Something I'd never heard of. My counselor knew it was bogus. I heard a new director came in and the old one retired and he was very nasty. I have no rights, they look at me and just say, I don't know! I get blamed for mistakes they make, I get treated like a dog, literally. I just had to tell my story. No one can help me. My husband went in there and tried to help me and when he did, another patient warned him, please don't say anything or they'll only make it bad for her. He is now banned from even going in there!

You are very lucky, it has much to do with the clinic you go to. I was on methadone a long time ago and stayed clean, got bottles quickly. I had a doctor for about 11yrs then tried going back to a clinic. It's ridiculous now the amount of time you are expected to put in for that little cup they hold over your head making it absolutely impossible to live any where near normal. 9 hours a week in meetings in one place, traveling, waiting around for inept counselors, dealing with jaded nasty doctors. The little bit of time I did stay I saw at least three people lose their jobs because of meetings. If you resent being there you will get nothing from it. I started detoxing myself. I'd rather be sick than deal with that s***, it's a shame because it's preventing people that aren't total slaves from getting the help they need. If you screw up I can understand having to make meetings, but give people a chance, all people with addiction issues are not the same and shouldn't be treated with this cookie cutter mentality.

Hi guys,

I recently had to switch PM doctors due to insurance crap. I need help and fast. I am on 6 30mg oxycodone, 20mg OxyContin, and 150mg lyrica three times a day. I cannot find another doctor willing to write for the 30mg and they are the only thing that helps my pain and that's BARELY. I have multiple pain and health issues. I am willing to travel to NY or anywhere in NJ if need be. I am really scared and screwed. PLEASE ANYONE if you know of a doctor let me know!!! Also, if knows of anyone that prescribes methadone. I don't want to go to a clinic and I hate subxoxone but if I can't find someone to write for 30's I need to come off of these and methadone works well for that but most importantly it helps with my pain as well. Please help me!!!! Please!!!

Dr Weissman in Bergen County was the best thing that ever happened to me. I was taking over 300 oxy80s a month..back before they changed them. Plus other narcs. I went go him and asked for help. I suffer from 2 shattered disks and herniations and had 5 knee surgeries. He prescribe methadone and it was best meds ever. Cheap as hell..and the best part? It lasted over 12 hours and gave me more relief than anything..
