People hav used drugs b 4 this new clinic and will continue. We already had 1 sub clinic so big deal, now theres 2. The reason people buy em on the street is cuz they dnt hav 1,000 bucks a month to pay the clinics and it might be trading 1 drug 4 another but if it saves jus 1 life its worth it. I kno cuz it has saved mine plus suboxone od is very rare. Quit complainin and be happy for the people that really are trying 2 change.

I just read all the post wrote I think ther by several people! don't think i read where any of you were addicts? well the reason im writing is to let you all know that i was a addict!! My doctor started me on pain meds about 7 years ago, I took them every single day of my life' I tried so many times to stop these drugs on my own" But it was impossible, I even ask my doctor for help and he told me that all he could do was to cut me back each month on them! But i was so addicted that i couldnt cut back because my body required a certain amount each day and if i didnt get it' I would suffer severe withdrawls, Finally i was told about a clinic that could help you get off the drug' and it was a soboxone clinic, And yes it is awful what it cost to go thru the process of even getting a script: But I was given a script for 60 of them, I didnt take them as directed because i could take less than that and i didnt have any withdrawls,I finally got over the addiction for pain meds and stopped taking soboxons also, and i still had 11 soboxones left!! the moral of this story is if you really want off pain meds" then soboxone is a good thing, but you dont have to take as many as prescribed, and you can just stop taking them after your withdrawls is over from pain meds. I think alot of people just feel the need to be taking some kind of drugs; and then there are the others that really want their life back like i did..
Agree with you

I was also addicted to pain meds for about 6yrs, of course i started on low amounts and told myself that i would never be like the others who took 8-10 a day, but i did. I started on subs and havent had any withdrawls, have been on them for about 3 months, going through a dose reduction process now....did you just quit them all at once or slowly because i was thinking about doing it all at once...im like you i wanted my life back and i have it...just want to make sure i dont fool myself by quiting to early...your story is very uplifting..congratulations on getting your life back

How do others feel about the new suboxone clinic in town? It is called 'Self Refind'. The drs. operating it have 7 other clinics in this state and in Tenn. I know of one case that it has helped, but really it is a trade for one addiction to another. I can not believe the rx drug problem that Ky. has and yet these clinics are enablers along with the drs. that prescribe pain meds and nerve pills to addicts, knowingly! Those who really do need pain meds, or anti-anxiety pills go thru hell to get them. Just curious if anyone had the same thoughts or even knew the clinic was in town. They opened Friday, May 13th.
well I go to a selfrefined clinic and belive me it is a miracle drug and works wonders I actually have a job and have by a miracle kept my family thank god!! I was spending at least $100 a day or more most of the time and my wife was lucky to get $20 a week. Now I'm sure they are people that are abusing this to get other pills with by selling them I know a few myself that I don't associate with just because of this it will give it a bad name and Probly has already. But I can say this if you want to really get clean and get your life back This is a great way to do it I can't belive the way my life has changed and I'm working on gettin off of these and can't wait but don't want to rush it because I dont want to go back to the way my life was it wasn't a life I was just existing not living. So it's good olof you want it to be in my opinion.

24/7 counseling available? You can call the dr. anytime? Not true, at least not with these docs! I know from several patients, they have lots of trouble getting in touch with anyone @'Self Refind'. They have problems getting their medicine approved by insurance, if they even have insurance. Each visit to the clinic, you must pay cash upfront before you can even be seen, no insurance pays for suboxone counseling, not yet anyways!So basically you are paying a high priced drug dealer to get you a rx for your fix. There is no counseling, there is no one there that really cares whether or not you need to get help, because it is a cash hog,$$ upfront or nor deal.
I a for helping anyone get better, but lets be real, you have to heal the mind as well as the body, and replacing one drug for another is not how it works.
I go there at Self Refind and they DO NOT take cash, they only yake credit card or cashiers check

I go to the self refind clinic and they do not yake cash..they take either credit card or money order. And it's $410.00 for office visit a month!!I started goinglast week and my Dr.would call me at home to check up on me for 4 days after my visit. I have told them about me having problems with the strips and just ignore me!! I'm paying that much money and they won't try me on the pill form??Now Dr don't call. I've called the clinic 2 times to keep telling them I;m having problems with them. They say they will tell the Dr., but never hear back from them!! SO, I have got to find a Dr. or clinic that does take insurance. I researched on the computer looking for doctors and I found one and I called and put my name on the list...And I'm thinking dr. was in columbia?? could be danville,somerset..But does anyone know of one that does take insurance?? Really in need of one.cause I cant afford $410.00 a month and they dont help with the complaints at all!I won't be able to go/pay next month!!So, if anyone knows of a Dr or clinic that takes insurance anywhere!! Please let me know!! And if anyone needs any info on the clinic self refind, I can tell you all about them!But Thanks to anyboby can help me with Dr. taking insurance!!

Actually The clinic offers more than meds....the do have counseling ..its set up like a therapist office .there is a seperate place if u bring. Your child to play ,....is very plush the counseling is 24/7 anytime your having a meltdown u can call your doctor. They wean u off in less than 2 yrs all med are marked and they keep count ....its all very privet and discrete. No nobody wants that in their back yard but it does. Help people change their life
It may change the lives of those who honestly want help, but for real, how discreet can it be? Everyone coming and going knows,and people oftenhave big mouths...

If used correctly it is a good thing but if not just another abused drug...legally prescribed to be sold on the streets.

And thank you for expressing what others may have wanted to say. Not everyone wants to quit, not everyone wants to stop taking "a pill", any kind will do, so for those of you who really do want to quit, I applaud you. Medical problems that require pain meds are often the blame for addiction...it's a catch-22 because not many want to be in pain, and taking meds is the lesser of two evils. It takes a strong person to admit they need help, and an even stronger person actually go get help. Never be ashamed of where you have been and what you have done since then.

I use to be a patient at self-refind. And my Dr. called me everyday!! I think that YES self-refind is a HELPFUL place, but yes they do not take any insurance, it costs $410.00 a month and that includes going every week for count and urine and counseling. They are very commpassionate there! Unfortunetly I had to find a place that took insurance and I don't much care the atmosphere there..the staff and the Dr's are not very nice (some nurses). Wish self-refind did take insurance!! I have been on Percocets 10's for 8 years and would take up to 20 a day! and I got down to 90lbs!almost lost my family..everything! and I started the suboxone clinic and I am starting to feel normal again, have my family and all their support. Not going in and out of the hospital now and up to 115lbs. They give me 3 a day to take but I am scared to get addicted to the suboxones so I only take 1 to 2 a day for now and will start my own weaning off later when my body and mind get healed up some more from the percs and other drugs I would take when i would run out of the percs. I tried cold turkey..I tried weaning off the percs,etc and none of that worked!! So, suboxone was/is my last chance. I agree that suboxone are addictive but it's all up to the individual if they want to use the suboxone to get high or use it to get better.This is my 6th week without any percocets,loracets, loratabs, cocaine, pot, and anything else I could get my hands on to get high! I'm not out here chasing after it all, I'm home with my family now!:) So, it's all up to the person of what they want out of suboxones!

I go there and my doctor is Dr. Higgason and the first week HE called me to check on me! And I have never had any problems with Dr. Higgason. He is a very good Dr. maybe you need to see if you could see him? And I get good counseling also.

I never called anyone a 'Dopehead'! nor do I think that druggies wear only rags. I know all types of drug addicts, professional people, and down-and-out individuals. I believe in treatments that work and clinics that offer counseling and support systems. Suboxone is a life treatment, trading one addiction for another.Once you are on suboxone, many do not ever get off of the drug. What would anyone want to be addicted to something their entire life? Much less another drug!
Also, I am by far not a drug seeker nor do I look down on those who are addicted to drugs, because I was once addicted to a substance chemical and I was blessed that I had someone who was my support system and thanks to God, I dealt with my addiction without another drug as my crutch. I am one of the lucky ones! so before you go blasting an individual maybe you should look in the mirror and ask yourself, Who am I? and what can I do for the environment around me? How can I help others who can not help themselves? It is easy to point the finger at someone else, but is isn't too nice when the finger gets pointed at you, is it?
Gee wiz!! And you think your not blasting people? Well you are coming off as one who does! That's good you got off your addiction without a"crutch"! But that "crutch" has helped many people! I am on suboxone right now. I tried on my own with my families support and couldn't do it. Does that mean I'm a failure? NO!! I took the next step and went to a suboxone clinic and getting counseling. Yes, I do agree the Dr's will have you on the suboxones for years or as long as you want to be on them. But for people who are REALLY wanting to get off and need a "CRUTCH"lol for a while, then I applaude you for reaching out for the help you need and using the SUBOXONE-NOT A CRUTCH to get off!! I am down to 1/2 a day now, started taking suboxone about 3 months ago and hoping in 1-2 more months I will be clean of it all!! It kinda pisses me off that you get on here and act like your not blasting, but you are. You come off as bragging about yourself for not having to use suboxone "crutch" and you tell the other poster about pointing fingers when your pointing your finger at the people who do need to use the suboxone. Well, when your pointing your finger there is 3 of your own fingers pointing right back at you!!!

Well I think suboxone is great as long as u taper and do not become dependent on it. U will go thru dts jus like opiates. So if u don't taper u mind as well keep popping pills! Aye u said there were 7 clinics in tn. N e close to Nashville?
