I honestly don't even know what these are. Never heard of them outside Topix. What are they supposed to be legitimately for, and how long have they been around huntington? Is this a recent thing?

Just think...it wasn't that long ago that people could go to a drug store and buy OTC morphine, cocaine, heroine, etc. Did you ever look at some of those old ads in magazines? Actually advising people to rub cocaine on a baby's gums to help with teething. A hundred years from now, people will probably be writing about how crazy WE were, with all the antidepressants and "pecker pills" and such.

They're not stopping production. They're reformulated like OxyContin is now. Tamper proof using a plastic type material.
I know people who take it, actually just 2, and they say that now they can live an actual life.
It pisses me off when people abuse prescription meds because it hurts not only the addict, the addicts family, but also those who legitimately need it.
The down side to this is that you're going to see a rise in "street drugs" like heroin.
I work with people who have substance abuse problems and already seeing a rise in heroin use.
It's scary to think that some 15 year old kid will get a hold of something like that.
Oh, and here's one for you- the state has cut mental health funding in the area of substance abuse so things like preventative education are going to suffer. The state government is complaining about the abuse of these pills and at the same time do nothing to teach kids about the dangers of it.
Isn't that a disgrace?

people are going to start doing heroin watch. the thing about heroin is the only way that you can find out its quality is to try it.

Absolutely Watch Out, and those same people don't know if it's going to kill them the first time. It's not that I condone the use of these drugs, but to think that now were looking at a potential heroin epidemic should scare people.

in huntington a few years ago people were used to some realy crappy heroin. then all of sudden there was heroin that was a lot higher quality than they were used to. for example if they were doing $25 worth of the crappy stuff to keep from going into withdrawals, the same amount of the higher quality stuff was killing them literally. like i said before you can't look at heroin and be abe to tell its quality you have to try it. there was a guy that i grew up with here that was bringinghigher quality heroin than people in this area were used to and killed several people. they ended up finding out who the supplier was and he was facing manslaughter charges. at least with a pill you know exactly how much you are getting, with heroin each 'dosage' could vary pretty significantly. there have been several major cities in the us that have seen a similar problem with heroin. i am a recovering addict and i don't see any alternative. the pill mills in florida are shutdown, the real oxycontins aren't made anymore and heroin is going to get big in this area watch

Yeah, I remember that- a bunch of Marshall students were overdosing. Like 3 died within a matter of 3-4 days.

I don't see why the average working person should pay for the drug addicts to get treatment, we are spending thousands of dollars each and everyday for rehab that is worthless, as soon as the addict gets baCK On the street they are right back at it. In order to stop the abuse shut it all down, and use the money for a long term mandtory stay in a recovery program,if a 12 month stay was given and send them out to work everyday on a chaingane so the couldnt get any of this crap, then maybe it would help, giving them food stamps and and hud just gives them more money to spend on this terrible crap. Our country need to come together and get this problem taken car of. I ' 70 years old so before you jump on me for my spelling just remember your elders.

Opana is a powerful combination of opiates which should not be prescribed for anything but the most serious illnesses, and it should be strictly controlled even then. It causes addiction with shocking speed, even when used as prescribed, and turns addicts into zombies whose only goal is to find their next pill, because it actually changes their brain in a way which doctors can see on scans. It is so dangerous, it has actually killed longtime opiate addicts the first time they used it. Those who try to stop using it are forced into methadone therapy, because they cannot stop without replacing the Opana with something else.

They need to stop manufacturing it altogether, in my opinion, because it should never have been approved by the FDA in the first place. Yes, it may actually help a few people, but there are other drugs which can be prescribed to them instead.

I took opannas for a year no less than one a day, or as high as four a day, you just want to keep the feeling, without it you become very sick, can't get motavated, iv never felt like this before, I lost everything I had, at times there would be lots of the pills around! The next day you needed one to get your day started and can't find any, I made my mind up one day I was going to get away from them and stay away for good, keep in mind that I do work, and made over 100 grand a mnth, it took all my money, I am very head strong, and was raised up not to take drugs, and never did any drugs intill I was in my 30s. It takes a pretty good amount of time to get hooked on them, I'd say 3 mnths doing them everyday, taking double the amount from time to time, but back on topic. I was going to stop the pills for good, I tryd to taper down, it didn't work, I tryd to go from opannas to loratabs, it never worked. I didn't want methadone , it's just like pills, I didn't want to go to a clinic or a doctor.so I knew a friend that has suboxones. I got some and took one, but you must be in a state of withdrawl, or it will make you sick, it was tough the first 2 days, I even had to do a little bit of pill to help, but 3rd day I didn't feel sick, I took the suboxones every morning. You have got to want to get clean, if your minds not wanting to, or your trying to get clean for your wife or someone else, you'll never get clean,but I'm happy to say that I have not had a pill for over 6 weeks! And I am not going back to those days of looking for pills or waking up and being sick! I'm finished with that all. But I understand that not everyone that's on these pills are bad people, they just got messed up, but it's the hardest thing ever, to get away from this drug, these doctors need to be held responsable for the over release of the high power, king of all pills ( OPANAS) this pill ruined so many good familys, and took moms and dads awAy from there kids.so if you think you can just take a opana or pills on Friday night and party a lil bit and you'll not get hooked, your wrong, please people don't take pills, there no good, the pills will tear familys apart! It was the hardest thing iv ever tryd to stop .

I say give em away for free....hopefully all these addicts who refuse to get help or go get the bandaid called suboxone will eventually just weed themselves out!! It's ridiculous that these people who choose to try these drugs knowing the risks are now fried and will end up with a disability check cause they can't work (which my tax dollars will go to)...I work in the medical field and people who actually need these drugs have a hard time getting them because of the check drawing low life druggies!!

Do they actually give disability checks for strictly being a drug addict? I know that in the past they have given them to people for being alcoholics. Does anyone know?

Jam: no, not anymore. They don't do so for alcoholism either more.
It was changed a few years ago.

I remember that they also used to give SSDI for people with tattoos on their face, claiming that it would be a "hardship" to find a job.

Thank you for your answer. That totally unnerves me when I think about how Medicaid and Medicare pay for Suboxone, and the addict can sell those. If those pills, or strips, sell for 25.00 a piece and they can get 4 a day...that's 100.00 a day minus the cost of the script. I think the cost is 10.00?
2800.00 a mo that they can potentially get at the cost to the taxpayer.
Then you have a hardworking taxpayer who gets injured on the job and they have to suffer because the doctor is too scared to manage their pain adequately for fear of being hunted down by DEA. The doctor and patient suffer.
That's just backwards.
