taking xanax is covering up one drug with another,the best answer is probably God, and a lot of willpower.hope you make the right choice,it will be a tough battle but dont give up. that is all doctors do, get people hooked then cut them off.

someone to go to church.I don't know why people have to start saying go to church. This person wants to stop taking pills not join a church. Yes i agree that going to church is great but they are wanting help getting off of pills. They didn't ask how to get saved or nothing like that. It kills me ever time someone has a problem and everyone starts yelling go to church.

Seboxin does work, it is not a pain medication. It doesn't not have any addictive properties. I work at a Pyschiarty Dr. Office. And we treat patients with that program. There are things you have to qualify for, in order to be part of the program, but NO you do not get addicted. It is a non addictive.

Its a hard road getting clan any way you go at it but let me tell you from experience, the only thing that kept me alive besides God watching over me was methadone treatment. I dont give a rats ass about what all these pricks say about it. it works.. good luck, and please dont give up, i know where your at and no one on this earth knows better than a recovering addict. once in treatment, you get your life back, you feel the way you did before you took your first pill. thank GOD for methadone treatent clinics...

But someone close to me quit. This is what they would have told you, this is what they told me. First a detox program, then find something that gives you inner strength, whether it be a person or God. Next you have to get rid of all your old friends that do drugs, this is the most important step of all. Time and time again the person I know tried to quit and before they knew it, they would go around their friends and be back on drugs again. They said it was vital in stopping, you must stay away from anyone who does drugs, the addiction is too great, you must keep yourself away from temptation or you will break over. Even if you do break over, stop immediately, it isnt too late. They broke over many times and finally, truly beat it. The temptation is still there, said it would be forever, you must decide and stop once and for all. They said now they hardly ever think of drugs, but knows they will always be an addict, said they can never let their gaurd down.

Also, said you need to find something to occupy your time, very important. A hobby, job, or volunteering to keep your mind occupied. Take it day by day or 5 minutes at a time, but stick to it. They said it took a long time to beat it, thought of drugs constantly, but when the urge struck, they occupied their time. This person also went through numerous rehab programs and none worked, but these programs gave them the tools to use when their mind was made up to quit. NA meetings also helped, but the desire to really be fed up and ready to quit has to be there or its useless. This is what they have told me throughout their recovery.

NEVER GIVE UP, eventually you will beat it.

You're a liar. If you worked in a psychiatric office you'd know how to spell it.
you are misinformed

First of all, it is suboxone. It DOES have additive properties. The difference between suboxone and methadone, oxycontin, etc is that suboxone is a partial opioid agonist, whereas the others are full opioid agonists. While this drug has proven more successful than methadone in helping abusers with their addiction, there are still cons. For example, when you begin taking suboxone you will experience some withdrawal symptoms as the medication differs in chemical make up from common pain medications. You will also experience withdrawal symptoms after stopping suboxone. The choice when using this drug is either go through one withdrawal with perhaps more symptoms or two withdrawals that may possibly have fewer symptoms.

It is very irresponsible to post about such a serious matter when you are not completely informed.

I was wondering how does someone go about getting in one of these programs? the seboxne or methadone.
I went to Dr. Ace Chaney and asked him for help but he just wrote me 120 loracet 10mg. Needless to say that just made things worse. I do want to stop but unless you have been addicted to something you don't understand.
As for turning to God , I believe that when I am ready I will . Thanks for the words of encouragement but thats not the answer I am looking for.
So you are saying that you went to this Doctor, asked him for help, so I am assuming that you told him what your problem was since you asked for help, and in return he wrote you out a script for 120 pain pills??? Sorry but I just can't believe your story.
For those that are actually addicted to drugs. You can overcome this. You will have to ask for help, it will be very hard to do this alone. Talk with your Doctor, he can get you into some kinda drug therapy.
The implant is expensive but I heard that it has great outcomes. To me the best treatment is cold turkey.(Trust me) I have been there and done that years and years ago, so I do know what I am talking about.
Asking for help is the first big step, it's the biggest step that you will actually take by becoming drug free.
Good luck. And I do agree with the other's, turn to God as well.

Although I didn't post any of the original (go to church) posts, I can tell you why it's a good idea. Getting saved and accepting Jesus into your life gives you an inner power or inner strength. Sometimes when you reach a moment of weakness there is always someone there to give you the boost you need. It gives everything you do a greater meaning, so you have double the reason to do it. If your an athiest it probably won't help, but if you believe in God it does.

If you look further into that as I did for my friend you will find that they just get addicted to methadone. I am in search of a way to help him stop his addiction to pain pill abuse/addiction. It is the withdrawls that make him get started again. HE NEEDS HELP!! I am in a frenzy trying to find a way to save his life.

I agree Suboxone does work. That is if people use them right. You have these idiots who take other stuff with them and cause a lot of problems. You have to want to quit as well.
