I have an addiction to pain pills and I am trying to find help! I really want to stop once and for all! If anyone has any info on clinics that take medical cards in Lexington or clinics that may be cheaper than others or based on income ect. Please let me know! Thank you so much!

Hey first of all you're already headed in the right direction. Second , I couldn't find any when I searched. I have four cousins in KY who r hooked on heroin. I was until two years ago. There is a great Dr in Ohio , one of the leading suboxone Docs in the US. Dr Mubarak. I can ask him the next time I see him and girl do u got your wad of cash ready? I went to pemco in Ohio and paid 255.00 my first visit and 356.00 for the urine screen. Dr Mubarak works at pemco as well. Now thru an act of God I got him to see me at another location the only one in Ohio that I know takes caresource. Most of these Sub Drs are abt money. But u might find a good one like I did. And if your liver isn't tip top, consider subutex. It's made in generic so if you're paying out of pocket that's a plus. I am going to ask my Dr abt Kentucky. Lexington. I will post when I talk to him. I am praying for you. Ok good luck girl! Amanda Jo

There are several in Lexington. One is called Second Chance and its off Buckhorn Drive. Never been, but I've talked to them on the phone. Plenty of other doctors prescribe Suboxone here, some take cash, some take insurance. Good luck!

Best way to be drug free is to just quit. If you are afraid of detox find you a rehab that specialize in medical detox. They give you something for the puking and sh@tting. Other than that you get nothing. Then stay in that rehab place at least a year. I mean inpatient not outpatient.
When you use suboxene, methadone etc.. you are just trading one addiction for another.

Funny how I have replied to this thread twice with answers for the original poster and my replies get deleted? So much for the freedom of speech.

Isn't getting on sunoxene just trading one habit for another, I know from a "very" reliable source you can liquid the strips and use them in I.V..I guess they're easier to get a prescription for.they do monitor patients although you have 3 strikes before they boot you out. It reminds me of the methadone program. Synthetic Heroin is all any of it is. If taken correctly it would probably be okay but there's not too many pill heads or Heroin junkies that bother to take it right.

Wrong. I would tell you why you are totally wrong but every time I post about what suboxone really is on here, it gets deleted. Ive had three posts about what the difference is between methadone and suboxone and all of them disappeared. Why? I dont' know. But they are two totally different durgs and work totally different.

My son died of acute narcotic toxicity one year ago. Since then, I have been researching the drug which he was on for nearly 3 years. I have taken everything I have learned about this drug and made it into a blog. It seems that everything you read about Suboxone is positive. If you do a google search on Suboxone or buprenorphine, you have to get past pages and pages of paid advertising and pro-Suboxone information to find any negative information about Suboxone at all. This is not fair to addicts who should be given all the information out there that is necessary to make an informed decision. What I have found out is scandalous. There are an increasing number of media accounts and studies concerning crime, overdoses, death, diversion and addiction problems associated with Suboxone (Buprenorphine). I present this information as a public service to those that are only told one side of the Suboxone story…

I will try to help the best I can. The reason most of these doctors don't accept insurance is (1) it cuts in on their profits.( These are your money doctors who careless about you!).(2) before enrolling in the program, ALL insurances have to be pre-approved for payment and benefits. Also the pharmacies have to preappove payments for medication. This usually takes awhile, including notes and recommendations from the treating doctors and or referring doctor. Plus the lab that doctor's office uses for toxic screens. Three different providers have to be preappoved. The doctor, filling pharmacy, and the lab the office uses.(3) All these clinics are suppose to be funded by the federal government and they have regulations and rules they most follow. These doctors have to have special training and ratings after their MD in their names, before they are allowed to write out prescriptions for this drug. Each special doctor are only allowed so many patients per doctor per Federal guidelines. So cash makes it easier to have more patients than an insurance trail of patients!(4) Drug Counselors have to be per approved for treatment if not part of the doctor's office treating you. Some have in house others don't.
Suboxone is a wonderful drug for those who want help and a change of lifestyle!! This is not a forever drug! I have seen patients who have been on it for years. This is simply another addiction, that is extremely hard to get off of. These withdrawals are harder this opioids! This is also a sign of uncaring, abusive doctor's office/staff, that needs reported immediately! This is just another drug mill!
With any good specialized doctor, there's rules and regulations that each party must follow. Each patient MUST attend drug counseling for course of treatment. Each patient must have weekly, monthly and surprise drug testing that takes place in front of the nurse giving the test! Each patient is required to attend weekly meetings/ doctor visits until doctor is certain the patient is on the right track than it goes to biweekly to monthly. On your first visit you are placed on a estimated time
Of weaning off of the drug suboxone. Usually it's 6 to 8 months. Can be up to 12 months depends on severity of the addiction. Anytime there's a drug test that's failed, missed appointments, refusal of drug test, unexplained Kasper reporting ( these are pulled with ever visit ) your gone!! Georgetown has one, London has a new facility that's suppose to be excellent. A good source is your family doctor for referring! Good luck everyone!!

Though you made some good points do not group all doctors and staff that do this for a living or not do this in the direct manner you pointed out in one catagory. As in any area of life there are people out there to only better themselves. Yes the treatment can be expensive but the criteria you listed is only suggested protocol in how to precribe the medication not mandated. Every doctor can make the choice to follow that line or not. Do you think adequate patient care can be made on 20 dollar reimbursements from insurance when the government limits your patients from 30 to max of 100? That wouldnt cover the rent of the odfice in most places. And just because the FDA recommends that suboxone is not a forever drug and because people refuse to face the reality of how culture and environment play into addiction does not mean people cannot be on it forever if need be. Which is the better solution? Someone with a spinal cord injury that is in pain and put on doses of opiates that only force your body to not help combat the pain itself and keep increasing the amount until youre still in pain and cant function because you are dependent on the opiates or taking suboxone on a daily basis at the same dose to maintain and function the rest of your life....
We want to point fingers and name how people should suck it up and "beat"their addiction but who in the hell are we to put regulations on something that helps people live a functional and productive life.
This is not a condition that is fixed but otherwise maintained. The fact that in the state of kentucky we are more concerned to point out how wrong it is to take a medication and how horrible the people and doctors are that give this medication instead of focusing on how to help more people with it instead of risking death daily with opiate use is sickening. The way our health care workers and general society treat people that are seeking this for recovery is sickening. The amount of nurses doctors and pharmacists that i have come in contact with that want discriminate and treat people like shit for being on this medication is sickening. Point blank each and every one of us either has the opiates the alcohol the sex the nicotine or the damn donuts that we shove into ourselves to cope with shit.
As the saying goes...until youve walked in that persons shoes..shut the hell up.
