Methadone clinic advice

My son wants me to take him to a Methadone clinic to help with his long term opioid addiction, everything from oxy to dilaudid. Is this the right thing to do? ## Hello, Gina! How is your son doing? Methadone is a viable choice, however, most people that use it do end up needing a lifetime maintenance dose of it and daily visits to the clinic for a long time, before they earn take home doses, which are usually only up to 2 weeks worth. The other option is Suboxone, many people that take it do end up eventually becoming completely drug free. It is covered by some insurance plans, plus the patient usually gets a full month prescription from the get go, though the doctor or pharmacist may supervise the first dosing. You can discover more information on it at click here. They ha... ...

Methadone Clinic Advice

Hello.. I recently started going to the methadone clinic to help me with my addiction to H and painkillers. I am currently on 60mg.. They have been moving me up very slowly because I have liver issues. I am still experiencing bad WD symptoms in the evening and it's driving me nuts! I have several autoimmune diseases.. I don't know if it could be because of the diseases or maybe 60mg just isn't high enough to keep me good 24/7 yet.. Any ideas or advice? My boyfriend seems angry with me because I'm still sick 10-12 hours after I get dosed .. He's not the only one frustrated though.. I'm living through it still and I though the clinic would be the answer :-( ## Hello, Nikki! How are you? It seems the clinic is trying to help, but they must be cautious due to your li... ...

I've been in my clinic 5 years with no problems, then all of a sudden my insurance is cut off and they never told me and I got a lil loud n upset so they kicked me out. I've never had any issues or been in trouble for discipline. I've also been clean for 2 years. ## Hey Im sorry that happened how are things going now?

Methadone clinic phases (NC)

I have been on "Phase 13" (13 take homes) for the last couple of years. I took pain meds (had surgery couple of months ago). I lost phase 13 and was moved down to six take homes. How long will I have to be on this phase at the methadone clinic before moving back up? ## It is really up to the clinic and their rules, which you generally agree to, when you sign up for treatment with them. Thus, no one else can give you a hard and fast answer. Did they know you were having surgery, and taking other pain medications? Most do not allow them, and if they weren't informed, some clinics have actually dropped patients for that. The FDA warns that Methadone carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, dry mouth, headache, and constipati... ...

methadone clinics don't care

I been going to the methadone clinic in Birmingham for 3 years,I always pay for my dose,but this one day I ask to charge and I had to damn near get on my knees and beg to charge,Three years of paying and I ask for help this one time so you think they help me,he'll no,they don't care. ## I would pay like clock work but one day i owed 7 dollars and the medicating nurse was going to refuse medicating me. But another nurse told her to go ahead and dose me. In the early days I thought methadone centers where there to help improve your life ? But when the 1980s came and Reagan cut federal money to MHMR's doctor's opened up their on private methadone clinics.That's when it became cut and dry money for methadone and if you don't like it, go back to your street drug life ... ...

Updated in Methadone

I need help finding a doctor in Michigan to prescribe me methadone for my addiction right now i am buying it off the streets and it is so hard and expensive not to mention they are so hard to get they are around maybe once a month... but i cant go to a clinic everyday does anyone know of a dr that would prescribe by month or week???? ## It sounds like you've been taking Methadone for some time now. Perhaps it's time you just stopped taking drugs?? Methadone doesn't need to be taken for a month to cure you of your addiction. My feelings are that you are now addicted to Methadone. That's probably why you have to buy it on the street. No doctor is going to pander to that. Get off the opiates - go through the withdrawals and get on with your life. (I did this myself before).... ...

methadone clinic experiences

Has anyone at all ever had a positive experience at a methadone clinic? ## The methadone clinic can be what you make of it. I went on it when I just could not afford to go through months of not being able to function to get clean again. It saved my life, I transitioned onto it without being sick at all (primarily because I still used at the very beginning tbh), but it gave me stability, helped me get away from the habits and the being sick and the fear, and helped me get back into recovery. I admit after years of prejudice against methadone as a means of recovery I was ashamed and embarrassed to be on it, but I was out of options. It turned out to be much different that I had imagined. Of course there are the people there who give clinics a bad name. But there are many who are weaning d... ...

However, if you know the name, you could look up the number to call them and ask. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Methadone Clinic Payment Help

I am looking for any resources or information about getting any kind of help paying for the methadone clinic, I know things are different depending on where you live, I happen to live in Lake Charles Louisiana. My wife and I have both been opiate addicts for over 10 years, and have both tried suboxone treatment and we have not had very good results. Subs leave us feeling terrible and ultimately end up being just a way to avoid cetox in between dope binges. The DEA rules with Sub are set in favor of the doctors, manufacturers, etc to make money. Methadone clinics are money makers Im sure but the politics behind them seem to be more focused on real addicts, finding real productive change and leading healthier lives etc. However, as for my wife and I, we are not prescribed anything at the ... ...

Need Methadone Clinic For Pain

Does anyone know of a doctor who prescribes methadone in or near Orlando. I've been on them for pain for years and it's the only thing that helps. My doctor took me off and put me on loratab that doesn't do a thing. ## Why did your doctor switch you?

Pill Count at Methadone Clinic

Is it legal for a doctor to ask for a pill count, if he/she is not the prescribing Dr.? The Dr. that does perscribe the pills knows that I am going to the clinic, and the clinic Dr. has already had contact with the Dr that prescribes my meds, And, btw, my Dr found the clinic Dr very insulting and offputting. All is above board, and I'm not trying to hide anything from the clinic Dr. But there are two Drs., (very young women), at the clinic that really treat patients like criminals, rather than desparate people seeking help for their disease. Also, any documentation I bring in always seems to get "lost" before it's entered into my paper and computer file.(Of course I always have copies!). ## Hello, Mz Q! How are you? Yes, they can ask for anything of the sort that they wa... ...

I go to MMS or a methadone clinic

I have severe anxiety and ptsd why cant i get perscribed xanax ## Hello, Bob! How are you? If you're in a clinic being treated with Methadone for an addiction issue, then doctors are going to be very leery of prescribing you any medication that also has to the potential to be addictive, which would include Xanax and all other benzodiazepines. What else have you tried to treat your issues? There are several antidepressants that can be used to successfully treat these conditions, which don't carry the risk of being habit forming. ...

Methadone Clinic and Lung Cancer

Hi. I have been on the Methadone Clinic for about 3 years and have been slowly decreasing my dose and doing very well. I am down to 60mgs daily and had 6 take home doses. I started having really bad pain in my neck and shoulders so stopped going down, and after literally harrassing my doctor for 2 months and becoming very swollen in my whole chest, face and neck I have been diagnosed with lung cancer which is causing SVC Syndrome. I am in constant pain, rarely sleep and only sitting up. Methadone is not helping the pain at all. My doctor gave me 5 mg valiums. Which now takes away one of my take home doses so I now have to go 2x per week to the clinic. I am mostly bedridden atm. Has anyone had any experience with this? This is BRAND new. Supposed to have 1st appt with oncologists tomorro... ...

methadone clinic reimbursement

Just got on state insurance here in Wisconsin and they will pay for 3 months of medical treatment that i have already paid for including my methadone treatment. The clinic is supposed to reimburse me but I've been waiting more than double the 4 to 6 weeks they said it would take. I keep calling and asking but nothing seems to be happening, they just say that it was approved and they're waiting for the check from corporate. Has this happened to anyone else and if so how long did it take you to get your money? P.s. how much is a 3-month reimbursement? ...
