Does anyone know where the closest doctor that can prescribe subutex is located? I recently moved here and it made me realize how much I need help. I've been using heroin/opiates since I was 13.. Any help is greatly appreciated

I have not heard of Subutex, but wondering if it's basically the same as Suboxone. Probably is. I dont think any doctors in Fairmont prescribe it, you have to go to Morgantown, Chestnut Ridge Hospital. They have a treatment program up there for opiate dependence using Suboxone.

That is exactly not the attitude to have. Here is someone reaching out for help and you make a comment like that. Ridiculous!

Besides Morgantown there is also a Suboxone clinic in Clarksburg or Bridgeport. You can call Valley Mental Health and they will direct you to the nearest one. You also may want to check into getting help through them, and not only treating one addiction with another.

I agree Joe. That is why I suggested treating with counseling or therapy. Suboxone, Subutex and methadone are used to help with withdrawals and are not supposed to be used as a form of long term treatment.

Instead of your former comment of go back to where you came from...this is someone that is asking for help. Instead of turn them away, give them advice. In order to fight drug abuse and misuse we have to let people know there is help out there. Otherwise comments like yours makes an addict think that there is no turning back or getting better.

I agree to some extent with Suboxone seekers looking for a legal high. Someone that is legitimately trying to find help with their problem needs to be treated with this to ween off the harder drugs without having life threatening withdrawals. This treatment needs to go along with counseling/therapy in order to increase the success rate.

It sounds to me like this person may have moved to the area to get away from their problems and may have thought they could deal with withdrawals on their own. Got here and realized they can't and now are asking for help. Give it to them. The last thing they probably need is to go back where they came from.

Suboxone does not get a person high. I blocks the craving for opiates to aid addicts in kicking the habit. It is a much preferable treatment to methadone.

If Suboxone doesn't get a person high, can you explain why it's an abused narcotic that is crushe

I thought Subutex was where you could get a five dollar foot long.

Because desperate drug addicts will try anything. Did you know selling suboxone is a misdemeanor, not a felony? A quick google search will tell you how suboxone works by blocking the craving for opiates.

Selling any prescription medication you have is a felony.

A quick google search will also show you rehab centers for suboxone and subutex abuse.

I assure you it is a misdemeanor. http://www.legis.state.wv.us/wvcode/ChapterEn...

Suboxone is a Schedule V, sale/delivery of which is a misdemeanor.
Those are not clinics treating suboxone abuse but clinics providing suboxone treatment for those with opiate addiction.

I see that some addicts use it to enhance the use if other drugs. That doesn't mean it is a dangerous substance by itself or not an effective treatment for opiate abuse.
Subutex is different because it lacks naloxone, the agent that prevents misuse.

So basically what you're saying is that it is illegal and that it does has the potential for abuse. Right??? Your words, not mine

Thank you to everyone who gave me a legitimate, non judging answer, I have no intention of selling or abusing these medications. The only thing I want is to be able to wake up, got to class (I take 18 hours btw) and then go to my 30+ hour a week job and not be throwing up, aching and have stomach pain from hell. I've had my fair share of consequences from my actions. I have a hole in my stomach, fucked up immune system and nerve damage so bad That I can't sit still without my legs driving me crazy, I sleep less than 3 hours a night because of my RLS. If you had parents that loved you enough to be there for you and teach you right and wrong, I'm envious.. Because I didn't. I just want to get clean and take care of my girlfriend and little brother.

Dear "In Need"
I am happy you are seeking to become and stay clean. It is a hard life to be on opiates. You lose a lot of yourself, you lose family and friends. The Chestnut Ridge program is great because it incorporates counseling, both individual and group, in with the Suboxone. Best of luck to you!
