Nasty Treatment From Doctors

I was just kicked out of a Suboxone program. Get this, I had been going for ten months. I sailed thru treatment. Star was the word my counsel said. I got thru phase one, I got thru phase two. Low and behold in phase three, I scored a job. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. The trouble began when I was offered a very lucrative position. That's right this uneducated junkie actually was moving mountains. I started working mad amount of hours. So I went to program and said look. I need to be able to not miss any work over these appointments, at work they were cutting personnel. So I said bear with me for the month of February. For at work it was all a numbers game, now mind you I have sailed thru this treatment. So every time I saw my suboxone doctor he would say why are you missing appointments? I would say it's not an appointment until I make one. He totally expected me to give up everything I had worked so hard to get. So finally the end of February comes, guess what I was kicked out of program by the very doctor that promised as long as I keep doing the right thing he would never let me go. Do you even know how betrayed I feel. No dirty drug panels, no missed suboxone counts, no nothing except the very thing that he was proud of. I have a forty year history as a junkie. I need help and I need it now.

Hello, Conie! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having.

Sadly, any doctor can dismiss you as a patient for any reason they see fit. They aren't required to treat you, unless your life is in immediate danger.

Have you tried seeing if there is another Suboxone program in your area that will help you?

There is a search engine you can use on their website, click here. It allows you to search by zip code and their contact information will be included.

The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Do you have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, they may also be able to refer you someone that will help.

Does anyone else have an ideas or suggestions that may help?
