Methadone Delivery Conditions In The Usa For Foreign Student


Conversation Starter

Schopp Thomas Says:


I am a French student who just returned in University to study philosophy at 35 years old, after a rather chaotic path. I am medicated with methadone and Alprazolam at rather high dosages (120 mg/day methadone and 3mg/ day Alprazolam) since almot 10 years, and I am very stable. One could say I'm a "functioning addict". Currently in my second year at University (I usccessfully graduated my first year with mention), I have the opportunity to go study in the USA during my third year, normally in Boston.
My question is mainly about methadone, as I'm less worriend about Alprazolam.
It is absolutely out of the quesiton for me to quit; my treatment is a medical necessity. Here in France, I have to go search a new Rx at my doctor's every 14 days, and the Pharmacy then gives me 14 days of methadone treatment (that is, 28 x 60mg vials).
I wanted to know about the usual protocol for getting my methadone while in the US.
Of course, my doctor, and, if needed, my pharmacist, can provide every needed paperwork / Rx / declaration / proof that I need this treatment.
However, as I will be studying, I really cannot allow myself to go and take my methadone in a "methadone center" every day like I saw in many videos. WOuld you see me, you xwouldn't recognize a drug addict, I look and behave like every other student. I'm functioning. So I need to know if it is possible, with any needed paperwork or doctor habilitation, to be in a system like I am now in France, that is, a system in which the doctor and the pharmacist allows me to go and search my treatment every two weeks or so, because I just won't have the time to go in a methadone center daily before going to College every day, I absolutely need to have my treatment regularly.
I realize it may greatly vary from state to state, but I will probably go for Boston, or perhaps Nebraska, Texas or Kansas.
Any information you may have, as a user or as a practicioner or anyone, whatever your state is, will help me a lot.
Thanks in advance to everyone.
