Suboxone treatment ?'s
Suboxone treatment ?'s
So, i've been looking into getting in to a Sub dr in my area. But, of course as with everything else, it is incredibly hard. I have state health insurance. That is useless when it comes to getting into one of those doctors. And, i'm poor as anything...LoL. I have a 6 month old baby girl, and anyone with children knows, kids aren't cheap. I don't have extra money to spare. I called all the doctors on the list on the suboxone website to see if A) they take my insurance, or B) how much they cost. None take insurance...and they all cost at least 300.00 cash to start up. Then maintenance is between 100-250 a month. Not to mention the meds itself, then the therapy sessions. UGH!!!! Why do they make this so hard for someone that sincerely wants help, and wants to kick their habit??? I even asked about payment plans, to no avail they almost all laughed and acted like i was crazy!! I don't get it!
- I live in Philadelphia. Is anyone from here, that knows anything that i don't?!
Hey IMC8883 I am from South Philly and I feel your frustration! I spent months looking for a suboxone doc. Let me first tell you they are VERY shady doctors and will intend to keep you on subs for years. I don't know what type of habit you have now... but I do know a place in north east philly (mayfair) you can get a script for prob about $125. Rather than buying dope/oxy's save the money for the suboxone and get it. You will only need the one script to detox.... but you will have to lie to the doctor and tell him you are willing to go on a 2 or 3 year plan otherwise he won't take you on. There is a law about how many patients a doc can take per year so they don't make money unless they keep you hooked on subs. I have found that suboxone doctors are more shady than ANY street dealer I was using in south philly.

Suboxone can take you from zero to hero in 24 hours... but you have to use it correctly. Otherwise you will just become addicted to the buprenorphine in suboxone instead.
Again... I would love to help. I have been leaving a detailed description of my detox process over on the the "unexpected suboxone withdrawals" thread.

It's hard for me to get anywhere, A) because of my physical problems, B) i have no car lol. I need to do something. I've been at this **** for years. It's not fair to me to either be sick from meds, or taking meds all the time.. I have taken, and currently take percs, tramadol, oxys (when available) basically anything to get me high to be perfectly honestly with you. I don't do dope....will not touch it, i don't care how sick i am, or how badly i'm detoxing...i will not do dope. I have that wonderful love affair with opiates. And i hate it!! Now, more than ever i really need to work at this. I got arrested on thursday night, while i was high. Dumb....even dumber since i just detoxed myself again, and spent the better part of a week in detox hell. I turned around, filled my script, and threw it all out the window. Went shopping, which i LOVE to do when i'm high on pills, stole some stuff, and got arrested. So, now.....i have a felony, spent two days in jail, and am out on bail. Thank the good lord when i went to jail i didn't also catch a narc conviction. I had 10 perc 10's in a reglan bottle in my purse when i was arrested. I played it off like they were the reglan. No one said anything, and i was released with them. So..like i said, i really need to get on this, find some meetings maybe....do something, because i'm porgressively getting worse and worse.
**** I was on sub's for awhile in 07. I needed to get off of morphine, and fentanyl. My dr had prescribed me both for my condition. I have hip displacia- it causes my knees to dislocate randomly and constantly. It's very painful and more often then not i find myself putting my knees back in place and not doing much of anything because it's just too hard. Anyways, I bought my sub's off the street and followed a website to detox with them, it worked. And i was clean for about a year, until my pain was too much to handle, and i started back up again.
