He walked out of a rehab after 12 days. A year later he did a rapid detox with a 3 month program w/ subutex and lots of vitamins. But he keeps craving oxys and keeps going back and forth. He says subutex doesnt work and he doesnt ever feel good. He thinks he will feel better on methadone.
Please try to keep him away from the methadone clinic if at all possiable. It is hand cuffs for life, $15 a day, every day for eternity, withdrawl can actually be deadly, people die from withdrawl from methadone & the clinics are there only to take your money! Try getting off & they offer to up your dose, I think it is medical suicide & should in most cases be considered murder of innocent drug addicts, goverments way of ridding the world of the drain on society, do not trust any thing they tell you, please seek a honest & true professional doctor not these clinics popping up like candy stores on every street corner. If the subutex isn't helping what about suboxon? and if he really wants to get clean it would mean counceling, meetings, getting real about why he is in the position he is today. No one person decides they want to be a drug addict, the reason he is one is the beginning to getting clean, then one of the alterative meds will help, if he truly wants help. I am so sorry you are here today, I walk with you, feel your pain and ask your same questions but one thing I know for sure... PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IN TO THE METHADONE REQUEST ! Mom or Dad whoever you are if you allow, (may not be your choice) him to get on methadone, you are siging his death certificate, heroine is scary because it illegal but it is no where near the monster that will haunt him for the rest of his life & drain you, him & all who love him of every dollar & dream you have ever had. I would sell everything I own to clean up our daughter, but we caught it too late, she had already went to the metadone clinic, now... it's a life sentence, very few & I mean very few get out alive. God Bless we will pray together tonight, with Jesus anything is possiable, and that is the only hope we have... MommaNancy
Yes do try suboxone it is much easier to come off of and it doesnt give you a high like methadone does oh yes methadone does give you a small high so this may be why he favors it so much.
