Drugs are ripping our families and our community apart. Please, if you are struggling with drug addiction, speak to your Dr. or Pharmacist for a referral to a Suboxone clinic. I see it working for people who had lost all hope. For your family's sake and our communities sake, check it out. Yes, it's expensive, but so are your fixes. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, wife, husband, children etc are worth it.

what if you dont have a family doc and the family member that is desperate to withdraw cant afford some of the private docs. he is my son and works full time, has a new baby. i guess he got hooked buying lortabs off the street. he doesnt take anything else. if he had to go inpatient rehab he would lose his job. we dont know what to do.

Suboxone definately turned my life around and my husbands. He is working now and for the first time in years we have money in our pocket. I didn't go to a doctor for a referral either I went to a suboxone clinic in Barbourville. It is expensive about 350 dollars a month which if you think about it is about a third what you spend buying oxy's and so on. The place I go to is called self refind. They even have a number you can call if you want counseling you can do from your own home. If you need help with the number let me know. my insurance paid for the medication also.

Amen, this is exactly what Tazewell needs! It is infested with pills. They need a clinic here, if the people here were willing they could get their life back too. Having money in your pocket and a life, this may be a new concept to most of the people here.

Dear Desperate, you don't necessarily need a referal, I just meant your Dr or Pharmacist could give you some clinic/Dr's names. A lot of insurance companies cover Suboxone including TennCare. Your son will need an accountability partner that can encourage him to keep the appointments. If you don't have an insurance that will cover the Suboxone, you can turn your prescription into your pharmacy and buy partial amounts at a time, perhaps a week or two supply at a time to help cash flow. Its not a schedule II, so you don't have to get the whole amount at once. Any sacrifices you and your family have to make to get him in a suboxone clinic will pay off in huge dividends. We have folks in our pharmacy practice that are new people now. First, because they decide they have to change their lives, second they count on supportive family or friends for accountability third, they stick to the plan. I urge you to do whatever you can to get him in a clinic. It's imperative though that he acknowleges to himself that he has a problem, wants to change, and needs help doing it. Good luck and may God bless your effort to help him.

This is a great thing if you are sincere in quitting. But as a RX Tech myself I see more abuse of suboxone than truly wanting to use it for the right reasons. It is bought and sold just as the other Class 2 drugs are.
I see no cure to this problem. I only see it getting worse with the economy here in Claiborne County. I blame the doctors for prescribing it mostly the pain clinics. So until there is more regulations on schedule drugs there will always be problems. There should be a drug reform before any attempt from the government to pass a health care reform.

Sassy, you are exactly right, Suboxone can be abused too and true enough, the pain clinics are too liberal. That's why I said the individual must realize he has a problem and WANT to change. Under those guidelines Suboxone can work and does work. I agree its not a magic fix. The patient has to accept personal accountability. As for the economy and its relation to drug abuse, that's definitely a factor. Isn't it sad that when people run into hard times they latch on to something that's only going to worsen their situation. When money's already tight and these folks are spending what little they do have on drugs for some perceived temporary pleasure. I wonder how often the power bill is late, or other essentials etc are neglected for this poison. Bottom line, for anyone dealing with addiction, decide today you want to fix your life for your sake, your family's sake and our communities sake. Suboxone can help.

If you all really wanted off of drugs you turn to vivitrol injections rather than trading one drug for another.

I was addicted to hydros for over 2 years. I know to some people a hydro aint crap these days but i wouldnt take anything stronger because i had already watched it ruin my best friends life along with several other friends lives. Anyhow, i had lost my mother and was having trouble with kidney stones at the same time. The Dr. put me on hydro 10s. I quickly found that the pain meds were not only helping with physical pain but also the emotional pain from losing my mother. I do have kids and I knew I was doing wrong but by that time I was hooked. So, a friend of mine had been going to a suboxone clinic and thought it would help me. Of course I had told this person that I wanted to be clean, to be the person I had been before. I would take small peices of suboxone and did that for 3 weeks and i can honestly say I felt normal again. Yes, I had to learn how to deal with my emotions again but my point is, is that if a person really wants to be clean suboxone can and will help you. It helped me, It changed the couse of my future.

How about putting all ur heart and soul in it and just quit, if u want to quit bad enough u can and will. Yes the dr.s have some fault in this, but if ppl didnt go to them complaining of pain etc... they wouldnt be perscribing them, u have to own up to ur probs/addictions no one is forcing u or making u take all the pills, taz and new taz is nuttin but pill heads terrible shame.

what about the people like myself who have worked since I was 15 and now have multiple medical issues plus a full blown case of osteosarcoma. That's cancer for those who don't know. Some days it takes all I can not to just end the suffering once and for all. There are those of us who have a legitimate need for the medications. And I'm not talking about these 25 and 30 year old KIDS with their baggy shorts past their knees and so many tattoos you can't tell their ethnicity. They jump up and down running outside to smoke, it's so obvious a blind man can see there's nothing wrong with them. A legitimate pain clinic takes insurance and follows up with Urine Analysis and physical therapy. They don't charge $300 or $400 to get a "script" wrote out. I know narcotic abuse is a major problem but please don't lump those of us who do need help in with the junkies.

Just being honest and calling it like i see it, take it how u will, many addicts are younger but there are many adults 30 plus that I know of that turn around and sell their pills they get, even ones with serious issues, just saying, gl with med issues..
