Anybody know where in Athens, GA I could get prescribed pain killers? Thing is, is ive had tramadol before and It would be helpful if I had something now, but no doctors have trusted so far and I cant blame them because there are weirdos who are perfectly fine and like to try to get them anyways.

Hi Scott...I know this is several months old but maybe this is still relevant. You said you didn't want to go to a clinic bc "they always make you take more than you need." Actually, this isn't so. Most pts report the opposite- that they feel underdosed. Anyway, if you do decide (or have decided) to go the clinic route it just so happens that you are in one of the best states for MMT (Methadone Maintenance Treatment). ..AND I MEAN ONE OF THE BEST. GA has 27 takehomes (of course after a period of time and it also has about 50 clinics statewide. I'm in AL and we have approx 20...which is considered good. Tennessee has maybe 10...and their heavily state-controlled system is not therapeutic at all for their pts (for the most part)...they really have to jump through hoops. Anyway, hope this helps. If you need a clinic in your area, you can go to the 'Clinic Locator' on SAMHSA.gov site. It will show you the clinics listed per each state and will give all contact details.

BEST OF LUCK!

Missy Says:

I have been in pain management for several years for chronic pain related to arthritis. My insurance has changed up and my doctor no longer takes medicaid. I signed on to a clinic but it isn't working great for me. The mornings are the worst for people with bad arthritis and I really need to find a doc who can work with me on methadone or something that will address my needs. I need a doc in North Georgia or western tip of NC.

Hi Missy-
I completely understand what you are going through. A lot of patients have a very hard time getting back into pn mgmt after going to a clinic. Once you've been to a clinic, you are labeled as having addiction issues (whether you were on it for pn mgmt or not).

Best of luck to you Missy!

Hey Melanie...I also live in Dublin and am looking for a pain management source for methadone treatment for chronic pain. I am SICK of having to go to our local methadone clinic for pain relief. Not to mention how my family's finances are suffering due to the expense. Did anyone reply to your message with any information. I am on disability and medicare and need to find someone who takes medicare and prescribes methadone for pain.

Hi. I am trying to find an OBGYN that will prescribe methadone for a pregnant patient. A friend of mine is almost 6 months along and has been just getting by with what she can find. Her doctor does not know that she is on methadone and would probably stop treating her all together if she found out, but she cant afford to go to the methadone clinic so her dose is not level and not monitored. This is very dangerous for her baby and the baby will need to be treated after he is born, but since she does not have a prescription right now, that is going to cause a lot of problems for my friend. I am very worried about her, but more worried about her unborn baby boy!! If anyone knows of an obstetrician that can help treat her with methadone in the Athens Georgia area or nearby, and that takes Medicaid PLEASE PLEASE respond to this!!! Thanks!!

Hi DillonLove- Unfortunately doctors cannot prescribe Methadone for addiction purposes, only for pain mgmt. She can only receive methadone for addiction through a clinic...and GA is one of THE BEST states for MMT clinics (and there are soooo many, at over 50 clinics compared to less than 20 in Alabama). However, she may be able to find a doctor that would Rx Suboxone. Only certain doctors can Rx Suboxone. You can go to the treatment locator on SAMHSA.gov and find all Suboxone doctors and methadone clinics in GA. Sorry she is going through this! Actually, 40% of babies born to mothers on methadone have no withdrawal symptoms and need no medication (I was one of those 40%). Best of luck!
