methadone doctor birmingham al
Yes, I am trying to find a way to taper off methadone. I am a recovering addict and I have been in recovery 9 years. In my methadone treatment I was at 70 mg @ day and reduced to my current 30 mg @ day in small amounts over time at the clinic I am in. I have heard that a psychiatrist, under certain conditions could write it. Insurance doesn't cover MMT and my wife and I both go. With one income and 2 kids life is financially impossible. ## Unfortunately, no. Under current U.S. laws to have it administered for addiction treatment or maintenance, it can only be given in a clinical setting by those that are specially trained in its use. However, it is your right to taper off and if you tell them, they should help you to do so, but you do need to be aware that most people never get off ... ...

find a doctor that prescribes methadone in birmingham al
I'm looking for a doc that will perscribe methadone. I recently get a perscription for 70mg a day and when I went to get my last refill he told me I need to find a new doctor that he won't be able to perscribe me anymore because they are changeing the law and for him to prescribe for pain management he had to be a PAIN specialist and then he would loose his mal practice so I'm in a huge bind. He's been prescribing me for almost 7 months and he said he would write me till the end of the year and that's it. Idk if he's lieing or what the deal is. I can't afford clinics not to mention my work schedule won't allow it. Has anyone else heard of this and or know of a doctor in or around birmingham. May could also help with some information!! ## Yes, there are ne... ...

local dr who prescribe methadone
I live in Birmingham, AL and I just can't afford getting my methadone though a clinic since I lost my job, and I do not have insurance. Are there any doctors in the local area who prescribe methadone as maintenance program? ## I'm sorry, but under the current laws, private practice doctors cannot prescribe it for addiction/maintenance treatment. That can only be done in a clinical setting by those that have been specially trained in its use for such. Learn more Methadone details here. And really, a private practice doctor is going to be more expensive than one of the clinics. Have you tried seeing if there is an assistance program that you qualify for? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness,... ...

Need a chronic pain doctor
I live in Jasper, Alabama and have been on methadone for 15 years. It's the only thing that's helped during my chemo or when my ruptured disc are bothering me. The doctor I had just up and left and left all his patients hunting a new doctor. Does anyone know a doctor in or around Jasper or Birmingham that I can see that writes Methadone? ## Really, your best bet is to see a new doctor and make sure they get your medical records, so they can speak for themselves. Asking a doctor to prescribe a specific medication is often seen as being drug seeking behavior. Does anyone else have any suggestions to offer? ## Yeah, I'd definitely move from the deep South as fast as possible. Sorry about the comment Florida sounds like your closest bet to find an outpatient treatment center for... ...

suboxone Dr costs
I no longer have insurance and I am wondering if there were any free treatment centers in the Birmingham Alabama that prescribed silicone? ## Hello, Connie! How are you? Unfortunately, there are none that treat with Suboxone that I'm aware of, it is actually provided by private doctors that have the special waver to treat with it. Have you considered Methadone treatment? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ...
