Does anyone know if there are any suboxone Doctors in the area that offer their services at a reasonable rate? I need one that will not bog me down with counseling and stuff, because I work 40+ hours a week. Thanx!

The fee is expensive anywhere you go. Around $600 a month. If you are afraid of the price, then you should just go to the methadone clinic. It has about the same withdrawals and you have to be weened off of both. If you can get past the first two weeks of detoxing yourself then you will be fine. With suboxone and methadone you are replacing one drug for another which is never a good thing.

I take Methadone, and I don't feel like I have traded one drug for another, at all. But the biggest advantage of taking methadone (and Suboxone) is, you can live a normal life, even if you're on it the rest of your life. I have been on methadone for quite some time, and no one knows I take anything unless I tell them. So yes, methadone and suboxone does have their advantages!

theres a doctor at HIMG named ROBERT TURNER...heard hes a good doctor but rarely accepts new patients...
they now have this implant they can place under your skin in you arm that is supposed to stop urges and kill out the dope. so any dope u would do would not have an effect on you b.c the implant kills the drug

Dr. McCoy in Hurricane is the best treatment doctor around here. He doesn't do counseling there, he does require that you go see a psychologist of your choice about once every two months. He is kind, honest & wants to help. The nurses there are awesome & he will work with your schedule! I've been clean for over a year & I wish you the BEST!

Here's just another opinion. I did it the old fashioned way. I got clean and stayed clean. I go to Narcotics Anonymous, I work the Steps, I have a sponsor that helps me through life, and I am surrounded by hundreds of clean addicts and we all refuse to put drugs in our bodies no matter what, "Just for Today". I know that this sounds radical to someone that is currently addicted but I cannot tell you the freedom that I experience knowing that I do not have to rely on a substance to keep me clean. I initially went to treatment at the old PARC West which is ran by Prestera. There they taught me the skills to rebuild my life one day at a time. I spent 28 days there and welcomed the chance to do outpatient to continue to increase my knowledge about the disease of addiction and how I can avoid returning to that way of life. Next Wednesday, October 17, 2012 I will celebrate 8 years clean and serene. I no longer depend on a substance to make me feel "normal" and I would not trade what I have today for all the pills in the world. Whatever path you chose remember my way is cost free. Sure you have to spend some time working on your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors but trust me it is well worth it. The thing that I do not like about replacement therapies is that so very many addicts that go this route use them until the desire to use gets so great and then the start to sell them to buy the real drugs that they want. I have know hundreds and hundreds of people who have started that way of life and only know of very few people who "graduate" and get off suboxone or methadone. Please do not let people tell you that it is easy to get off of either of these two drugs as the withdrawls of them both lasts for months. You will experience withdrawl signs and symptoms that are tremendously worse than anything that you have experienced before unless you come off of them very slowly. Anyway, you may wonder why I know so much about this but I not only am an addict but I work in the field of trying to assist people with getting clean and staying clean.
However you chose to get clean I wish you the best of luck and should you wish to hear more about the way that I have recovered let me know and I will gladly give you my number. That is one other way that I stay clean is by helping other addicts and alcoholics to acheive the freedom that I have found. Good Luck!!!

Government sponsored drug dealing...guess it is ok if they are peddling the drugs. War on drugs knocks out their competition.

I am very glad that worked out for you. However, your method has a VERY low success rate. Methadone and Suboxone rates are much higher. Whatever someone chooses, it has to be what's right for THEM. It sounds like you are trying to push your way onto someone else and it may not work for them. Anyone looking to recover from addiction should be aware of all of their options and be able to come to an informed decision without being pushed one way or another.

Congratulations on 8 clean years! May you have many, many more to come :-)

There is a clinic in barboursville. Up on the hill behind the pink elephant. Don't know the name. That's where my b.f. goes and it is expensive. Quite a price to pay just for a normal life. Thank Jesus I've never had an addiction. But I have watched him withdrawal from opiates and also have seen him withdrawal from suboxune and they are both terrible. U don't sleep. U have involuntary body jerks and twitches. He yelled screamed beat his fists on the floor. It was awful. Just a terrible thing to witness. And thank God thank God I would never want to go thru that. It was a living nightmare just watching it.

I am sorry that you think I am an idiot, but I would like to refer you to the first four words of my post: "Here's just another opinion." I did not intend to portray my way as the only way. I merely suggested what has worked for me and for millions upon millions since June 10, 1935 when Alcoholics was founded and July of 1953 when the fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous was founded. I also just imparted my experience with Suboxone and Methadone over five years working in the field. Everyone has their own opinion and while I have not witnessed the staggering success rate that you proport with these two drugs I do believe that everyone has the right to make an informed decision. That is the sole reason that I shared my experience, strength, and hope just as you did as well.

I will say again. Whatever way "Need information" decides to recovery I wish him or her the best of luck and hope that they find the freedom that I enjoy today.

I wish I could have just detoxes off of opiates & just went to meetings & stayed clean. Honestly, I don't know if I could have done it. Suboxone is really just a quick fix & it prolongs your problem, trading one thing for another. My life is very normal & I don't really have cravings & I am proud of myself but I'm scared to death of detoxin off suboxone & it's always in the back of my head. Cross that bridge when I get to it I guess..
