I drive her back & fourth, she lost her right to drive, and the cost is CRAZY. i hate that place...wish i had found this site first, i would have ran as fast as possiable to get her to suboxone clinic instead of methadone, but I have to say, she is a joy to be around again, not stoned, home all the time, taking care of her baby, but that place is not trying to get her off drugs, nooo way, they want her $15 every day, and no insurance, no medicare, just drain you alllll day every day! Any who...how long for the valium...anybody out there know??? No offense to any methadone users I love you and know it helps u but ohhh I wish u suboxone in the future or a drug free life. ONCE I WAS IGNORANT OF ADDICTION...NOW I KNOW MORE THAN I WISH I DID...SO NOW I KNOW ADDICTS ARE JUST LIKE ME...PEOPLE...EVERY DAY PEOPLE....WHY DONT WE START THE WAR ON DRUGS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA WITH CLINICS FREE TO ADDICTS WANTING TO GET CLEAN??? NO NEED FOR DRUGS....NO WAR ON DRUGS ??? DUH!!! GEE JUST FIGURED THAT OUT IN MINUTES...WHY CANT THE PRESIDENT!!

ANYWHO...HOW LONG FOR THE VALIUM TO BE OUT OF HER SYSTEM?? SO SORRY FOR THE RANT....JUST DRIVES ME CRAZY...love momma nancy
If she is truthful about when she took them last, she should test clean. Buy a couple of different home drug tests and have her take them to see how they read.
I to have had my problems with perks and methodone. I started a maintenance program with suboxin it t works great. I had a 3wk since my last benzo and failed the test. I thought the 48hrs to 2weeks no us would work but It was about 19 days and i was positive. Drugs are hard to get off of. Hope you luck. I have heard some maintenance programs do weeks from the get go but mine is a everyday but sunday thing.
im pretty sure its 3 - 5 days. its hard just to stop taking valium because it does make you feel calm happy and relaxed so she might need a bit of encouragement if youre after her getting take aways. All the best.
The methadone is probably what is making her put weight on. It is full of sugar. loads of it. She can get sugarless methadone called biodone. same thing just no sugar. For sure she is still taking the valium if they are in reach because its just hard to say no. She may even be thinking of the toll it is taking on her family driving her to the clinic everyday so popping a valium would take alot of that heaviness away. good luck.
Nancy that is my name too and us Nancy's have to stick together. To answer your question it all depends o how long and the dosage she has need taken, if she has truly stopped it should only take 4 to 5 days. But I have a feeling she still using!! Unfortunately she is the only one who can stop herself!! If she not ready to stop no one and nothing u say will do any good. She knows she's pregnant and she want stop and that is Sooo sad!! I was a long time user of narcotics and valiums and I can honestly say I didn't quit till I was Sooo ready to be off them. I was so tired of being depended on them and it took up my whole life, trying to find a doctor who would prescribe them to me to buying on the street!! It's such a dangerous game she playing. She needs to fix the real issue about why she feels the need. I know I was always sad and depressed about things that happened to me in my past, unwashed sexually molested when I was little and had a bad marriage.
So until she admits the problem and gets help she will probably continue to use. I'm Sooo sorry Nancy and feel for your family and hope and pray she has a beautiful healthy baby. God bless u for all your trying to do for her!! Best regards Nancy sullivan
