Methadone Clinics Or Medicaid Doctors

sara mcconnell Says:

My son and daughter inlaw are on methadone and they both are on medicaid. Is there a Medicaid Dr in birmingham where they can receive a prescription for methadone without having to pay the high cost of the dose wheter it is from pain or from addiction???? Please help me I am on SS and try to help them but I can only do so much. They have tried Suboxone but it made them sick. I would rather see them on methadone than on pills or whatever addiction.

Methadone is one of the cheapest pills to be on, if you have a prescription. I get 270 10 mg. pills for $27.22. That is alot of pills. Usually clinics go by income or are free. It depends. Doctors are not allowed by law to prescribe methadone for dependency.

Verwon Says:

I can really only suggest following the advice of the other posters and contacting the clinic that was provided, due to the fact that we have no way of knowing what insurance any given clinic or doctor accepts.


However, you should be aware that Methadone is usually not a method that will completely get you off of all opiates, since it is highly addictive itself and most people end up on a lifetime maintenance dose of it.

For an option that helps people completely remove all drug dependence, you may want to look into Suboxone treatment in your area.


Is there anything I can help with?

I have had an opiate addiction for approx. 10 plus yrs. I have no insurance. My addiction is causing me to lose everything. I heard about Methodist and how well it works. It is something I needto check into cuz without opiates I have no energy and can't hold a job.

Hey, there are clinics that I know of that are pretty ok from what I hear in Ann Arbor and Livonia. I used to go to the one in Ypsilanti but it was a living NIGHTMARES and thank god closed. But people I know from there go to both of the others and they said those two are much much better in and out. There are a few Drs too, but really you have to have legit pain too. Currently I would check out WestGate Shopping Center in Ann Arbor clinic. At least there are buses in Ann Arbor.
