Get med-cal, medi caid or whatever, AFTER you search for a local Suboxone dr and make your appointment. I suggest a Tribal health program on the reservation. If not, just do a phone book and or internet search for a doctor that can prescribe medication because there's very few areas around the country make your appointment to get your insurance going that'll take a couple of weeks but ur appt most likely will take the same to arrive. If you absolutely cannot wait, do all of this anyway and get to the ER where they can admit you and prescribe the same meds, or close to it, to help u withdrawal. I know where ur at. I have 3 little ones and my husband was away when I had enough... this is just one option, I know of no other legal, less time consuming ways than getting insurance and contacting a suboxone dr. I looked into it for months... I wish u luck

hi kayla,i feel your young&was taken on by surprise as most pple are these days about getting addicted to these meds&then to alot of pple think,well i can controll my self,thinking they can stop the addiction,it doesnt ask you if your 1 that wnts the addiction or not,its pycological,it happens in your brain w/o you feelin anything,then when 1 starts feeling depressed feelings,thts when they start thinking their addicted,but then its too late to just lay them down,i dnt understand why,there is so much on medicine or opioid/opiate w/d these days everywhere you look,but to answer your question,Have you looked around your area for a methadone clinic?
you can start there&most clinics go by your income on what you pay for your visit,then with your young 1,it wnt be so bad,most clinics have you come in early in the am&they give you a dosage for that day&then you go back the next day,that goe on for a wk or so then you start taoering the days&dosage,a in goin every other day or every 3 days,that way with your baby ,she cn ride&go with you&maybe not remeber anything that she might not need to see at that age.But beleive me when i tell you tht you can get yourself clean,other than thinking of your life&your babys life,of how better it can be&knowing shes right there with you,all you have to do is get in a clinic somewhere &if needed see a therapist or some1 you can relate&feel comfortable about letting everything out with,also look on here for robert325,he is great at helping pple come clean slowly w/the least w/d symptoms from wht iv heard he is "THA BOMB",im going to come off wht im on when i know the time to start is right,im also going to blog it here w/all these good pple so that they can tell me along w/my drs wht im doin right&wrong,these pple r great here ,i hope you find your answer&will come clean,it is so worth it to come clean while your baby is young,young enuff not to let it slap you in the face when she is older by remembering whts going on. I will as i do every1 here,keep you in my prayers. GODBLESS

You need to get professional help as soon as possible. I can tell u the withdraws from painkills are very bad. You do not want ur child to see u go through that. I have been through dts from painkillers & I thought I was going to die. I went to the pyshci ward in a hospital to go through mine. Because there they can help u & give u stuff to make it go a lil better. I know u said u don't have anyone to help with ur child but u have to have someone u trust.
