I am on a maintance dose of methadone and will be for long term trmt, I have no job or insurance, I am under the care of a physician but can no longer afford to purchase medication. Is there any programs that help with this type of drug.
No, there are clinics but they charge about $85 a week. I suggest you get a really good friend to sit w/you for at least a week. Drink a ton of water, stay in bed, eat fruit. You will have leg aches, pain, and insomnia but you won't be a slave to methadone. We helped our adult daughter quit the clinic, and she doesn't use, but now she's back w/pot head, pill poppin, jobless, loser boyfriend and she's trying to "help" him. We told her to save herself, but now that she's not using anything, she has become his savior. You have to WANT to quit and not be a slave to drugs.
