I know that none of you know me, but I do have something in common with all of you or least your significant others. Addiction, regardless of what my drug of choice in the past was, I understand what you all are having to go through. I would really suggest that in addition to trying to help the people that you love get off drugs that you DO find a NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS GROUP or NA MEETING SOMEWHERE. It is a really good program and it has worked for me in addition with rehab both before, during and after. I do a heck of a lot of traveling and I go every and I attend meetings every where I go. Am I around addicts? Yes I am, but they are addicts who are in recovery, who are not using and who have found a new way of life, a new way to live. Not everything, or every way works for everybody, but I like to think that every body's different experiences are different perspectives that I can draw from and try to use in my own life and adjust to use in my own life. There are NA Groups and Meetings all over Kentucky. Sometimes people are not able to stop the cycle of drug abuse on their own, sometimes they need help along with another drug to assist them with the withdrawals, some people frown upon that, but the thing is, Recovery is a selfish road. You have to do what is best for you and your family the best way that you can because getting clean is something only you can do. No one can do that but YOU. You can't do that on someone's coat tails.

I have been to some really good meetings in Beattyville and in Booneville Kentucky. These meetings can be found on the website of www.na.org , and the Beattyville meeting should be listed as Mountain High NA, it is part of the Bluegrass Region Kentucky Survivors Network. I think that's the way that goes.

NA saved my life, because NA offers it's help for free, it don't cost a thing. I'll always be an addict; I say that because my body responds to drugs differently than other people. I'll always have to work harder, if I get hurt and have to be on pain killers. I'll have to tell my doctor that I am a recovering addict, so that he/she will know that they can't just prescribe me addicting drugs. I will have to always take more responsibility for my tendency to want to take more than I should, or use in a way that is not prescribed.
I am responsible. I am also responsible for my recovery, NA gives me that, allows me that,tells me to be honest with myself and others, doesn't shame me.
So while I may sit in a room with people who are just like me, I know that I am never alone. I may be the black sheep, but I found the rest of the herd.NA is not for people who need it, its for people who want it. I want NA in every state, every county, every town I can find NA in.Remember that addiction is incurable, progressive, and fatal, so are the drugs which we abuse, be it methadone or suboxone. "One is too many and a thousand is never enough"
I don't want to have only jail or an institution or death to face. I want to have life, with my family and my friends. NA gives me a new way of life.
I don't have to worry about tomorrow, just for today, tomorrow will take care of itself.

Please only serious answers. I only know of two suboxone clinics in Mt.Vernon. Both of them are expensive. I need to get my husband some help. We dont have insurance but cant afford 500.00 dollars to start and then 100.00 each week for the suboxone either. Are any of you that are currently taking suboxone to get off drugs in some sort of program that helps to pay for it? If it helps any, hes trying to quit methadone (and not from the methadone clinic either)
Zanax or Valium can reduce and then eliminate the withdrawals, but he must want to and those can be addictive as well

I wish him the best, the problem getting suboxone is not to many doctors has the "training" (not sure if thats the right word or not) to write out a persciption to suboxone, thats why it is so hard to get, and expensive, you would think they would sell it over the counter. He will have to not have any drugs in his system to get it, if he does it will make him deathly sick. But talking to your family doctor is probably a good idea to, they mak know a shortcut or can help in some way.
I've read more good things than bad about suboxone. I will be saying a pray for you.
has nothing to do with training and everything to do with pure greed

I don't really encourage people to break the law but I was in the same boat. I bought 14 tabs off of the st. and took them on a decreasing schedule. Worked like a charm and cost me 120 bucks. Never looked back.
If you want to know how I did it email me f4gjerry at gmail.
p.s. I was on 30mg of meth daily when I did it.

Helpless,
Have you talked to your doctor or pharmacist and let them know what kind of position that you are in? They did have cards that they gave out so at least part of your medicine would be for free, so maybe you can at least get it filled for a week and then you could have your doctor fax the info into the drug company to see about getting it free every month. I will be praying for you. If this isn't an option for you do you have any family or friends that would be willing to give you the money until you can pay them back?

Replacing one addictive dope with another (and suboxone IS addictive) is never a good plan. In fact, it is instructive to remember that methadone itself has been extensively used as a replacement treatment for heroin and other opiate addictions; now isn't that ironic?

No, if your husband REALLY wants to quit---and not just pussyfoot around by taking a replacement drug at an exorbitant cost---he'll try to dry out, the old-fashioned (if temporarily painful) way. If he doesn't want to---if he doesn't value his family or his own life enough to really try---then he'll just have to be a dope-fiend; and whether his drug of the moment is methadone or suboxone hardly matters. Anyway, seems like an easy choice to me: LIFE on one hand; and a wasting, chemical DEATH on the other. And, if I were you, I'd put this choice to him, bluntly. And if he's really adamant about being a pill-head, if he won't even try to quit without resorting to another, even more expensive chemical crutch, then you might want to reevaluate your marriage. At least, I certainly would.
Also, if money is so tight, how's he feeding his current habit?

I guess some people just dont understand that trying to "dry out" can kill you... that is if you have been doing the habit long enough.. ask any doctor... I think that going sick for days and not being able to buy the said drug is proof that trying your method wont work... now maybe if you have only been doing it for a week or two then yeah maybe it will but when you are truly an addict you cant just quit cold turkey... and just because he doesn't want to try it right then doesn't mean you should just end your marriage... part of the vow was in sickness and in health... well being a addict falls under the sickness part... you dont just up and leave... guess you haven't had many successful relationships... and addicts really dont value anything but getting that next high... thats what makes them an addict, deep down they care but when they need it they need it... thats why so many steal from family and friends... and i know this first hand because i am watching my fiance go thru a heroin addiction and about to start a suboxone treatment... rehabs are backed up with a waiting list and others are religious and if you aren't there religion they send you back out on the street... sure wouldn't mind watching him be able to function while on suboxone but being dope sick or nodding out all day from being high... call it the easy way out but i guess not everyone has balls like you
