I don't believe in this stuff and I think these places are just legal drug dealers but our daughter needs help. She has tenncare and she is over 21. She has been seeing this place and taking suboxin but it's too expensive. Me and her dad have payed it as much as we can but I am a bank teller and he is a pastor and our salary is not enough to take care of our bills and her treatment too. We have helped her as much as we can last month I went and paid them 375$ and I was about sick. She just has a few months sober and truly wants to ween off this stuff and get completely clean and I'm afraid she's gonna end up dead if she doesn't get help. A friend of mine who is a nurse told me to take her to a methadone clinic that prescribes suboxin and her tenncare will cover it all and there's also something called a sliding scale and it will be 10$ a week give or take. Please don't judge and please just give me some info if you have any. My husband and I are good people he is a pastor and our daughter is a good girl she just needs to get better. I don't understand addiction and I don't agree with it but you change your mind when your own baby falls victim to it. She was diagnosed with cancer when she was 12 and got hooked on pain pills and while the cancer is now in remission she's been addicted for years still. Our whole family wanted to shun it but has grown to support us in helping her and we all are sending up lots of prayers. So please help me if there is a clinic that will accept her tenncare my daughter has agreed she would be most thankful to go and wants me to go with her each time to make sure she's doing what she's supposed I cause she don't trust herself right now but she wants to get clean. Her life was spared and were afraid it won't be if she keeps using. Thank you all.

<quoted text> My story is 100% the truth. And if you don't have enough time on your hands that you have time to do that then go ahead. I don't have time for it I am just looking to help my child and nothing else. I have no patience for cruelty. So you or anybody that wants to be cruel I can just ignore every bit of it, and that's what I will do. People like you are destined for bad. And just like a bully, I won't even give you the pleasure or the time. Since that's what you want anyways is a rise out of people, you're not going to get one from me. So you can waste life by trying to make others as miserable as you are but I will not be paying anymore attention to you or anyone else who is just cruel.
Help your child!?? By keeping them hooked on yet another addictive drug!!?? You are a fcuking idiot. You are either a damned junkie or an enabler or both. Get into a real rehab if you're serious and quit stalking for drugs on the damn internet.

The one who is living Hell on Earth is you. I'm sure the people who you actually come in contact with dread to see you coming. I'd say the thing you fear most is becoming an addict. People seem to show the most disdain for the very thing they most fear becoming. You are pathetic. Your family, "friends" and coworkers know you're a sad specimen of a man. Now, I'm sure you have important misery to wallow in.

"Daddy is a Pastor" is in the first chapter of so many druggies' life stories it seems.

You probably squeezed this kid so hard when she was growing up, she sought escape in getting high.

Now you reap what you sow, just as "Daddy Pastor" preaches to his congregation every Sunday.

Tenncare is the state sponsored insurance that TN provides for needy, uninsured, etc.

Earl, we are trying to have a conversation! Why constantly say insults and use profanity. I'm glad you don't use narcotics (personal choice) but get off others backs!! It's not your business if someone chooses to use narcotics for pain control.

Methadone and Suboxone is one drug to another!
They will relieve withdrawal but will not stop the addiction
They have to have a new medicine that is out and then it is .... 60 percent mental , 40 percent physical
Its called Vivitrol! U have to go to the Vivitrol website and type in your zip code and find a doctor
Vivitrol is a injection ...( Not in your vein ) but in your arm and it stops withdrawal for a month but the person will not be high and can not take any medicine or drink because it will make u deathly sick
thank you very much I appreciate this info I have never heard of this and didn't know all that about these medications. We are going to look into that. My only concern is the cost. That's why I still would like to know about a methadone clinic that pays for it. My daughter doesn't make much she's on disability and it's monthly she was very sick as a child and still has complications. She's done well coming off of the hard narcotics the doctors gave her now it's just getting her off the suboxin. God bless you and merry Christmas.

hahaha , sitting on topix all day running to the bottom of the screen and taking the time to try to get my posts deleted..... now that is hilarious
You see , You live on topix... You see Topix as your real life and your real world , and when someone comes into your house ( Topix ) you get legitamitaly angry because Topix is all you have left in life!
You have some really serious issues !
You are online talking about addicts , while you are an internet addict yourself! I guarantee you if someone stopped paying your internet bill for you , you would go through Internet Withdrawals!
You are addicted To Topix! This is a disease and you should be treated for it.
thank you freedom for what you said it was very very helpful and I appreciate your concern for others including myself and my daughter. And no worries here I do not even read the negative comments because I know those people are the ones with the real problems and my daughter is a million better than they will ever be. You can see how miserable these people are on here who call people names and are so negative. It makes me truly sad. I guess not everybody has a family especially this holiday season or has someone who loves them. It makes me so thankful that I'm not as miserable as these people on here... It's sad to see such miserable individuals.. And misery likes company but I won't be visiting them.:) merry Christmas Eve by the way

Nancy, don't listen to these idiots or this person who has heard stuff about vititrol? she doesn't know anything about addiction.
I do, and am very familiar with the clinic, too familiar.
They will not accept tenncare for anything. but they are trying to work on it. they do not have a sliding scale, like other states, but will soon.
There are mant docs in knox that prescribe sub. and take tenncare. in fact they all do. but not the clinic. look up suboxone docs in knox. you will find what you need there
Merry Christmas
