@pj and jj,

In regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results:
{link removed because site no longer exists}

You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another:

Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd consider calling up a number of them to see if they are accepting new patients; some aren't, but most usually are.

Unfortunately, no one can know ahead of time what a doctor is or is not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's discretion. Some advice I can give you is to not specifically ask for any 'specific medication' when you see a new doctor. Make sure to transfer or take a copy of all your medical records with you. Then, the best approach is to discuss up front and honestly what has and hasn't worked for you in the past. Most doctors will take it under consideration if they know it's worked for you without causing any problems or severe side effects.

I hope this information helps!

There is a methadone clinic in Jackson, MS. Near UMC hospital. I've been going there for 4+ years. Alternative for Life. Our highest phase allows you 2 weeks take home doses. Memphis phases go as high as a month.

For anyone looking for a physician who prescribes methadone so your health insurance will cover the cost, in alabama (mobile) will bill your insurance. I've been paying GCTC 91 dollars a week for 2 years and just found out I could have saved $7,000 had I called around. I'm about to transfer to altapointe (I'm phase 4 at GCTC), and I'll post my results soon.

Hi...I know you posted this question awhile back but I thought I'd still reply. Only clinics and pain clinics will Rx methadone, and it's now rare that a pain clinic will. Would u happen to be close to Tupelo? There's a reason I ask bc *IF* you are possibly willing to go to a clinic, & u can swing the drive for awhile (it will get less over time & eventually be twice per month) there is one in Hamilton, AL, which is about 50mins from there. Otherwise I wish I could give more help. I can give you more first-hand info about that clinic if you need it. (Marion County Treatment Ctr) Good luck!

Is this dr Patel still prescribing methadone . I just moved to ms 3mths ago. My primary Dr prescribed it to me for 8years for chronic pain. I left all my records back home. 12 hours away. I resorted to going to a clinic while here cus its so hard to find a dr that will prescribe them and takes forever to get in, but id prefer a Dr, did these clinics are crazy and I've been on them for pain. Are his visits really expensive and is there a chance he would prescribe them, if anything something for my pain that last more than 3-4 hrs for pain if I explain my circumstance and condition. I have djdd disorder, neck pain, severe migrains , carpertunall , curved tail bone, severe pain in my lower back and pains and numbness that go down my hips and legs. something wrong with l4ans l5 I believe Dr told me. lumbar something . don't no exactly what he called that . in have like cold spots lately, where my lower back, hands legs and a few times my face would go cold and numb and feels like stinging , pins and needles in back and legs. also t of numbness lately. sorry for long story but I have children and want to go back to school, but need something for my pain and methadone has always worked well for me. Any help is appreciated. thank you

I should've stated that no it's not impossible that someone could find a doctor outside of a pain clinic that will prescribe methadone for pain, it's just not likely. I'm in the medical field and today it's *almost* impossible to find a physician that will Rx methadone for pn to one of his pts. Lortab/hydrocodone...that's a different story. Doctors do still commonly Rx that, however they have really cracked down on that also, as they've cracked down on pain killers as a whole. There's a huge difference in what was Rx'd 12-15 yrs ago and how doctors felt about opiates in general as compared to how it is now.
My best to you all-

Does Dr patel still prescribe methadone and how much w is his visits? Is it hard to get in with him? I've been on them for 8+ years. My primary Dr prescribed them. 7-8 a day. I have djdd,migraine, carpatunnel, fever tail bone back ,hip, neck,and leg pain. moved to Marion in nov and pain seems to be worsening . is there a possibility he'd help. I horror my med records at home ,but if he'd do xrays and MRI it would confirm what in saying. I also have lumbar of my L4 and L5. I think I got the name right. thank you.

If you can get to one of the BHG clinics in Memphis, they are very easy to get in to. I showed up on a Friday at 5 A.M. and was dosed and out of there by 9:30 A.M. They only see two new patients per day, so either make an appointment or get there at 4:10 and wait to get a number from the security gaurd.

You will need a legal ID(state issued) and a social security card or a print out showing you applied for a social security card, $158.00 and be honest on how much you use. The amount you use determines how much of a dose you will end up getting. You will only start at about 25mg for the first day.

The clinic I did in Florida made me wait 3 days before I could start dosing. This place is great and very friendly staff. I think they have 5 or 6 clinics around but you can start at one close to you and they will send you to the place that the doctor is at on your first day. He moves around to each clinic throughout the week but tou'll only have to go to the other clinic the first day.

Good luck!
