how many pills a day do they take? not to many could afford to buy them. i mean if it was only 1 pill a day it would cost $49.00 a week & then the dr. a $100.00 we are talking at least $600.00 a mo.
it is better than the other stuff as long as it is used right.

Its just replacing the use of one drug for another. Remember methodone? They abuse it now to. In my opinion drug abuse is NOT a disease but a choice. You chose to do the drug. A disease is like cancer, you do not choose it it chooses you!

No, drug abuse isn't a disease. But addiction is.

Drug Addiction is a disease that can be treated. But there is no cure.

I have been treated with Suboxone. I pay 50 dollars per month. NOT 100 PER week like the idiots in pennington do to get HIGH. Suboxone has changed my life and put it back in the right direction.

Once your doctor see's that you are serious about helping yourself, he will drop the price.
I pay 200 dollars a month for the treatment and it has been well worth it for me.

Most people, especially the pennington area, use suboxone to just get high. Once they found out what it was, like idiots, they started crushing them up, snorting them, shooting them while they have kids. Well, Suboxone is a wonderful drug when used correctly it does treat drug addiction.

It is not just another replacement drug.
Only when people crush them up, or shoot them, then it is like taking more drugs. But when used CORRECTLY, it does help.

Some people look at it that way but hey have u never ever had a family member or friend that had a very very bad drug problem and would do anything for them to get help or to help themselves i guess not because the stuff u guys post on here about the suboxone meds is shallow and u all would prob dis own a family mem. or friend affraid it would tanrish ur name u know no person is any better than the other.Do you smoke,drink coffe soda,or alcohal do u know that that 80% of adults take a replacement med to quit their addictions whether it be sex,drugs,smokeing,gaming, anything thats an addiction 80% thats a lot and u guys want to talk bad about one taking a med to quite shooting up or snorting and stealing to keep it up, i think you guys and gals should be proud of the people that take this med. to quit drugs and welcome them to ur church or befriend them its what they need support to help them quit the suboxone and live a totaly drug free life....I think some of you would rather these people keep stealing off you writing bad checks and selling food stamps and there bodies to keep supporting the drug habit of shooting and snorting not RECOVERY the RITE way.. When people steal off u & wal-mart and sell there bodies to support a drug habbit its illegal not safe. so think serious like i did before u down someone who takes suboxone correctly to live a better life.....

I'm not downing someone for taking the drug in the correct manner. And yes I do have a family member who is an addict and would go to Johnson City/Kingsport to get suboxone and then sell it or trade it for oxys so he could get high. So yes I have been through the hell and I've seen the damage drugs can do to the person and the people who love them.

Suboxone is a really good "medicine" I would not call it a drug....you take your medicine but you do drugs!...You are correct you should be slowly tapered down over atleast 6 o 12 months...Unless you go to Dr.'s in Jc where they keep you on the same dosage for ever it is a money racket because noone takes insurance...that's just fishy...it's a money thing to them..you hand them money they hand you prescripion?....Have also heard through my dr..Many of those clinics are going to get shut down so everyon needs to be sure that their dr. is on the level! Hope your family member is doing well...

OMG!!!
i am a former addict who uses methadone to stay clean.yes clean!!!! Maybe you should actually look in the dictionary for the def.of addict.saying it replaces one drug for another well,thats your opinion i highly disagree,but by good if replacing oxys with methadone keeps me employed and takeing care of my kids then i proudly say i have replaced!!!!!i have been takeing methadone for about 8 years and am what people call a lifer.i will probably be takeing it till i die and i am ok with that cause that means i am able to live,have a life and if anyone says thats wrong well,to put it bluntly youre ignorant!tis county needs a methadone clinic. did you ever think that the addiction rate remains so high because they have no where to turn.yea theres suboxone but thats for people who have been addicted a year or less. 9 times out of ten it will not work for someone who has been on drug longer.Dr.vanzee himself could not honestly disagree with that,thats why he prescribes xanax to everyone to cause he knows thats gonna keep them coming back for more.keeps his pockets linned.Methadone has a higher success rate,sure some abuse it but some abuse tylenol too.It helps more than it hurts.i see myself as a successs story and so do my kids.they know everything i dont hide it cause i want them to know that if they eve get in that situation that they have a place to turn to.

cont'd........

i take 90 mgs a day and since i have done well not one relapse or dirty urine i only have to go once every 2 weeks i get take-homes.the thing i like about it is that they dont just automatically trust you with a script like vanzee does, you have to earn it.they do randon drug screens and bottle checks and if you failthe test or dont show up for tyhe bottle check you lose your take-homes.
you should never set a time limit on recovery.only you know when your time is right,and for some it will never be,like me and i am ok with that.i am ok with being able to get up every morning and be with my kids to be able to do things with them and to be able to hold a job. i myself go to tazewll ,va to mmt.that mean methadone maintenance treatment.unfortunately not all adicts are as lucky as me to be able to drive a 4hr round trip for help but f they had one around here i guarantee crime and addiction rate would drop.when the clinic i attend first opened peopl in tazwell fought it said it wld bring higher crime but after 1 yr only they saw the rate dropping. people we will rob you for a fix but we will nopt rob your for a daily medication.edu cate yourself before you down it

depending on how long she has been addicted to opiates she made need to take that dose for quite awhile.then start cutting back slowly.this is from expeirence i took it for 2 and half yrs.thats how long it took me,but i had been on some kind of opiate for over 15 yrs staight.i was prescribed most of mine.i was taking something every day.it really depends on how long they were abusing,and most important you got to want to be drug free more than anything.be supportive all you can.hope this helps you.

SUB- like submarine or Subway
OX- like the animal or ox like in the word Box
ONE- like own ("I have my own.") Or she owns a car.
Or one - like in the word "presnisone" - it has nothing to do with prednisone though.
I guess the SUB comes from the word "under" since you take it under the tongue.
