Re: SunnyeRose (# 4304)

I have never been in denial that I am an addict. 55 yrs now. My dear was always what happens if I have genuine pain one day and nothing will help. Well these last 5 or so yrs. I have chronic joint pain all over and have developed mod. Emphysema from abusing myself. I don't beat myself up too much anymore guess come to accept and I always took responsibility for my bad hurtful decisions. No one was ever to blame. I want to get off my opiates with suboxone. Well it's so difficult for me to give up this drug as it has become my crutch. I take 10mg oxycodone 5x/day well supposed to but depends how I lie to myself. I do not do illegal street drugs anymore. I am proud of that. I am out of control with my script. I need help finding a doctor to put me on suboxone. My doctor won't. I love in NY LI and have Medicare and Medicaid. Any advice.

Re: Sue (# 4306)

Hi Sue,

I've read in your previous post that you are moving to Florida, and that you have 2 types of insurance, so finding an addiction specialist shouldn't be hard at all. From what I've read in your post, you are certainly addicted to opiates, and could benefit tremendously from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)! After five years of opiate use, I have been attending a MAT program for 2 months, and since day one I knew I had made the right choice! There are many that oppose treating opiate use disorder with an opiate, however, there are more that favors it due to its unique ability to mimic your drug of choice mechanisms. Therefore, this allows your brain to be manipulated into believing it has its DOC, and your body to begin healing itself. My suggestion is to contact your primary insurance company for any referrals to an addiction specialist, or recommendations to any state programs for addiction treatment!

I wish you the best, as addiction is a disease and although there are many definitions of addiction, we can be rest assured that the following definition is a relatively simple one as it encompasses components of several more complicated explanations of the disease- "Addiction is a chronic, progressive, incurable, fatal, yet treatable disease, characterized by loss of control over the use of addictive chemicals." This simply means that addiction is long term; will get worse over time; cannot be eliminated from the individual once its taken its hold; leads to death with continued abuse; but, CAN BE treated successfully!

Many will say that treating opiate use disorder (OUD) with an opiate (Suboxone, Subutex, and Zubsolv contains buprenorphine- a partial opiate agonist/antagonist that only occupies roughly 60% of the opioid receptors, but has a high affinity and bioavailability which allows it to STOP cravings and withdrawals, thus ultimately the abuse) is trading one addiction for another, but that is NOT the case AT ALL! Therefore, all I can recommend is that you research MAT, find a local MAT program and regain control over your life because addiction to opiates is indicative of loss of control, and once on this rollercoaster ride, no one knows what will happen next after that last pill or shot!

Re: Sue (# 4309)

Sue, MAT stands for Medicated Assisted Treatment, and this is a program designed to get and keep anyone addicted to or dependent on opiates off of them! Depending on when you are moving to Florida, my suggestion would be to contact your now local MAT programs, as well as any that's located in West Palm Beach Florida. Is there any reason why you can't begin a MAT program where you are now? It may be to your advantage to begin now and then have proof of your participation for when you move, by having a copy of your assessment and records from the program! Research Suboxone, Subutex, and Zubsolv; these are some of the medications used in a MAT program. I am currently on Subutex (I was allergic to the naloxone in the Suboxone) and it is absolutely phenomenal in its purpose for stopping cravings and withdrawals; even beneficial for some cases of depression. I was able to decrease my depression medication Effexor XR from 150mg to 75mg daily after a month of treatment.

In addition to the MAT program, Intensive Outpatient therapy (IOP) serves a great purpose for those of us addicted to/dependent on opiates! See, just as one would take their medication for diabetes, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS (all illnesses) we also must take our medications, and take care of our mental and physical health in order to have quality of life! Please, research these topics and you will find an abundance of information that will bring understanding and acceptance of this disease called addiction. It also allows you the opportunity to know what treatments may be an option for you, and a path towards recovery! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you, as I am here to help my fellow sufferer!

Re: SunnyeRose (# 4304)

I am grateful for info u gave me about MAT. Should I call Medicare and Medicaid while I am in NY? Or wait few months til I move to Florida? Is MAT a clinic? Should I bring all my medical records or would they send for them? I have to reapply for Florida Medicaid when I move. Oh God it's like starting all over with new doctor new pharmacy and new meds. Thanks for answering my question. I loved your response. U r straight forward and direct. No Bulls***. U r the only one who has given me advice. I am an honest person who has always taken full responsibility for my actions and since teenagehood never was in denial being an addict and stupidly chose to embrace the life. I managed to lead a double life. I did 5 yrs. of college to get a good degree and was able to support my expensive habit but I also paid all bills on time. I married a clean and sober man this time. 50 yrs he put up with me and I also helped him. I am not living the life anymore thank whomever but my script use is out in open. He still resents I take scripts but at 70 my body is in chronic pain. I want to get off the opiates and try suboxone. It's becoming tiring getting a script every month and of course most months I am short. Thanks for listening.

Re: Sue (# 4311)

Hi Sue,

It was certainly my pleasure to share with you what I can honestly attest to worked for me! I have always been direct and forward because that is what I expect, so I have to practice it! If this choice was being left up to me, I would definitely contact Medicare and Medicaid now; it can't hurt to be knowlegably prepared! Also, ALWAYS keep a copy of your medical records, that way you know what's in them, as well as knowing if there's any discrepancies.

Accepting one's life as an addict is a hard thing to do for anyone that's struggling with addiction! It wasn't until I got clean that I realized my self-worth. My clean date is July 17, 2018. I went to a detox center twice this year; once in April and then in June. Even though I felt low and alone, I made the decision to release this demon of addiction and get my life back! I had literally thrown my life to the wind. Then I saw it was time for a change, and I called about getting into a treatment program that utilized Suboxone, followed all the necessary guidelines, and now almost two months later I am a walking testimony that the program works if you work it; plain and simple! Like you, I obtained two degrees these last five years, Criminal Investigations, and Criminal Justice. Now, I'm going back to school to be a Substance Abuse Ciunselor. I now know that all I've endured is to bring me to this point where I am now able to save life! Living a double life takes its toll, and again I'm humbly giving you sensitive life experience knowledge. But, you speak of a good, clean and sober man that's supportive and loves you so don't you think it's time now to do this for him, if not for yourself! 50 years is a long time to stand beside someone that has an addiction, and to still love you....wow, that's unconditional love in its rarest form!

Sue, Suboxone saved me; it saved my daughter; it saved our life! If you should decide to research it, you will find positive and negative information so ultimately it will be up to what is best needed for you! Keep in mind though that there are always the ups and downs of most medication, and Suboxone (from what I've researched) is hard to detox from. However, now as it is, there is maintenance treatment- which is short term, just long enough to get through the withdrawals, and long term- meaning, the individual will more than likely remain on it for their lifetime. Again, what's best for YOU!

So Sue, there is no harm in contacting the MAT program in New York, and for when and where you move to in Florida. Speak with someone who can give you absolute information, that way you're prepared. That is KEY! Oh, and BTW, if you give Suboxone a try, you will find that you don't even miss the drugs! Won't even really be thinking about them for real, and if a thought does happen to pop up, I've found that it comes and goes. No anxiety, no excessive thoughts, no NOTHING! It is definitely worth it to me, and I intend to do all I can to remain on this path I'm on now. I feel great! Not where I want to be but where I need to be, so I'm just taking my time walking this path and listening to my spirit, my intuition- not gonna make this about religion, but it is about faith! ONLY A MUSTARD SEED! Just know Sue that I am here, and I understand. I get it! So, anytime you need a friend, just holla out! Also, if you decide to give Suboxone treatment a try, just know that you're inducted on a low dose, and then increase every 30 mins to an hour, while still in the doctors office, and you'll do this until you reach a dose to where you feel no more withdrawal symptoms. Dosage only goes as high as 32mg, and after that, there is no more benefit! So, taking any more than 32mg is useless, unless you gtmet your kicks off by wasting your meds :) anywho, this is just a little insight into what you can expect on your first treatment appointment. Oh, and you also have to be in withdrawals to start Suboxone. But, you've tried it before so you should know. Ttyl Sue!

Re: SunnyeRose (# 4313)

I am always short every month for usually 5 to 8 days so I take suboxone 2 times a day so I don't go into withdrawals. U said in order for me to get into MAT program and get prescribed suboxone I need to be dope-sick? I feel it's the only way for me to give up the oxycodone scripts as I have been an addict for over 50 years. Been in numerous TCs rehab day treatment programs therapy over 30 years. Etc. I am doing better than ever now. Do not do heavy street drugs anymore. Just use my script each month. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Karma Says:

I am from Canada, and I have jumped through so many hoops and doctors that I have seen. I have a broken jaw, bad hip, and the list goes on. I went back to my original doctor from a larger city and he is amazing ! Understanding, compassionate and a doctor that wants to help his patients. I thank God everyday for him, as I have dealt with some doctors that treated me so poorly. But karma showed one doctor, he refuses to help patients with pain, he got hit in an accident, and was never the same and ended up retiring early! SO I BELIEVE IN KARMA, and my God Bless my own Doctor!

Re: Sue (# 4318)

I also have been an addict. Have been in rehab TCs, 30 yrs. In day treatment for 2 years or could have chosen jail. Now no more street drugs. Just take my scripts each month and when I am short, like always, then I take suboxone. Personally, I am doing much better. Probably cause I am 70. Feel old physically. I have given up thinking one-day I might be clean completely. Guess I am ok where I am at. Hope your wishes come true. I don't judge and I don't feel like I am a bad person. Sue

Re: Jeff Devore (# 5)

How old are U? If you are over 65, Disabled by SS, or on some insurance, Call you city's Social Service and report what happened best to write the situation down and keep the original. Have your doctor arrested for ELDER ABUSE. It is the fastest way to get the doctor to prescribe, money loss, because w/o the pain meds you could not work. Good Luck. All of you should look into this Bill under your State, then, Social Services, then Elder Abuse. This has to be the only way to get our word out there FAST, legal arrest, I would go as far as calling your local police and TV station for coverage. What is your State?
