I don't agree with the suboxone clinic, and can't imagine you actually wanting to get on the program to better yourself....
but I had a friend who went to Dr. McGhee in Clarksville. There is also a Dr. Bethi.

I would recommend finding a different route...
suboxone addiction is just as bad as an opioid addiction.

have you ever experienced severe withdrawal symptoms? You can be a Christian and have a strong faith in God and still get addicted to opiates. All it takes is a major injury or a back problem that causes the need for long term pain med use and before you know it...you're addicted. It happens to good people, not just bad people. And even the strongest faith in God doesn't take away the pain of withdraw. I'm sure it has happened, but not always. Severe withdrawal can cause death, and if it doesn't, it can sure make you feel close to death. withdrawal isn't a simple thing to overcome, it is a disease. Suboxone is very addictive,, but with the right program and the right doctor, it can save your life.

I'm going to pray for you. My ex was an addict and HE was the evil one. God did not let me down. He got me out of that bad situation and put a good man in my life. Methadone and Suboxone are just the cowardly way of attempting to stop. If you were serious you would put all your faith in God and yourself and do it like a real man/woman.

that really passes me off. How would you know if you've never experienced withdrawals yourself? It is no.joke.when I say that.withdraws CAN kill you, if your addiction is strong enough and has been going on for a long period of time. I am a Christian and have always had a strong faith I'm God, but I became addicted to a medication...while I had faith in God! If you have never been addicted to anything, then you know absolutely nothing about the struggles with withdraw symptoms.

let me ask you something. If you or one of your children had a terminal illness, would you rely solely in your faith in God to heal them? Or would you rely on doctors and medication to heal them, along with your faith in God? Addiction is a disease, just like any other disease, and often terminal. I highly doubt you would not seek medical treatment if you had a disease.

living with someone who is.going thru it is nothing at all like experiencing it.for.yourself. addiction is a disease and if you had a disease, whether it is cancer or something like hypertension, you would also take medication for it. Some people just forget.that addiction is a disease, and very hard to beat on your own, without medical intervention.

Prayer can help,that parts your will to live but the physical
And medical maladies and chemical imbalances have to be
Treated as such with other physical and chemical reliefs as
Prayer is good but not nearly enough to do the job.

A drug addiction does not happen by accident and one who believes this fable is not living in reality. An addiction occurs when a person misuses a drug and either takes over the prescribed dosage or takes the prescribed drug quicker than needed. Example: A prescription that reads;Take 1-2 pills every 3-4 hours as needed for pain means that you can take two pills every three hours if you need to without worrying about an addiction. It's when you start taking more than your body can absorb that an addiction occurs. My son became addicted to opiate drugs and went through the methadone and suboxin clinics which was a quick treatment for the opiate addiction but it is not a good long term treatment due to the fact that the addiction to the methadone and suboxin are much stronger than the original problem plus there are long term serious side effects. The withdrawal symptoms from methadone and suboxin are much worse than the opiate addiction withdrawals but it does offer a quick patch for the problem at hand. The Evansville Treatment Center and the Nashville Treatment Centers are probably the closest to this area

you are right, it doesn't happen accidentally. Sometimes when you experience an injury or a long term illness and you take the pain meds long term, before you know it, one isn't working so you take 1 and a half, then two. Of course that is a very bad choice. But good people also make bad choices sometimes. When your in severe pain, you don't think clearly and just want your pain to stop in order to live a somewhat productive life, either not knowing, or not caring about the consequences at the time. It is a very bad decision. But if taken short term, along with long term psychological therpy, it can save your life.

I agree, we all make bad choices, sometimes on a daily basis and bad things can happen to good people. Even Godly people sometimes makes decisions that haunt them for the rest of their lives or may even result in an early death. It is only when good people figure out that the only difference between a pill addict and ourselves is a handful of pills. So be careful my friends of the choices that you make, it could just be your last.

Thank you for an intelligent response. Finally someone knows what they are talking about.
Addiction is like a disease or illness in the fact it was self-inflicted. Very different, not to mention cancer patients don't run around ruining the lives of everyone around them.

Dr Patel in Hopkinsville however I do not recommend Suboxone. Having been living with someone who used Suboxone to battle addiction, I'll say that it was just as addicting. The detox from that was as bad if not worse than detox from tabs
