You are trading one for another. There's a methadone clinic in Huntington. I have a family member going there every day. It has done no good though. They seemed to be their old self the first two weeks and then BAM! Right back to the same ol' crap. I know they are mixing other drugs with this, and that's a no no. They go to the clinic and come home and are in and out of conciseness the rest of the day. Its sickening to watch the droll. Some people it might help. The some is probably a very few.

The methadone clinic in Huntington has suboxone as well. You can choose either one the suboxone just costs a little more for your daily dose. Why would you want to drive all the way to.Columbus for?

If you have a DECENT family doctor and you are honest with them, they can give you suboxone or methadose and you wouldn't have to drive to ANY clinic but your own doctor.

WRONG! No family Dr. cannot or will not write prescriptions for either one for an addiction. It takes spec. licenses to give suboxone and the methadone has to be prescribed as a pain med. Methadone can be a good thing if used correctly and not abused. YOU CANNOT GET HIGH ON METHADONE!!! However, mixing methadone with benzo's can and will kill you. You can go to Hunt. or Charleston WV. They are sister clinics so you can take you're pick, they have about the same rules and requirements. You need to have the right mind set and want to be clean of the opiates and you can regain your life and get it back under control. GOOD LUCK, and believe me it can work!!!

The person before me is WRONG!!! You can get HIGH on Methadone, and this is not hear say this is from personal experience. I went to the methadone clinic and got high from it everyday. I left the Methadone and got on Suboxone. Suboxone is a lot better and if you find a good doctor it is a GREAT way to get and stay CLEAN.

methadone and suboxen will both get you high for 2 to 3 weeks and after that short time the only thing you can tell from both is when you dont take them. o took methadone for 5 years and now suboxen for 3 years and i haven't took a pain pill in 8 years and dont ever want to take one again. but one side effect of methadone is falling asleep all the time and its cause your high. "methadone saved my life" and "suboxen saved my bank account" cause travel cost with methadone was way to high. the only thing i can say bad about methadone is it hard on your teeth but i look at it this way i traded my teeth for my life. cause i wouldn't be here without methadone.

Benzos are like xanax (not correct spelling) You mix a lil too much you go to sleep and won't wake up. I have known many and I am not bragging, but complaining. A very sad way to go because they all knew the dangers. And as for HUM, HE HAS NEVER BEEN TO A CLINIC or he would know you cannot get HIGH. Talk too one of the counselors at the clinic and them or the Dr. there will put you on the right path. Believe me, I have been clean for a total of almost 14 yrs. And if it was not for these clinics I would be dead or in prison. But as it stands I have a very good job, a family, my own home and about anything else we need. I have a good support group and have been clean all of these yrs. If it sounds like Iam bragging now it's because I am. I am proud of myself!!! Ok nay sayers lets hear it!

Actually you are wrong. I am a registered nurse and work at a local facility. I know more than a few " family" doctors that prescribe it for their patients If your doctor decides not to prescribe it for you, then I'd probably change doctors. A doctor can decide what they will prescribe. As long as they have a DEA number they can and do prescribe it.

I have had more than a few patients in the hospital that have to bring in their home prescription bottles- with their doses in it- to verify counts are correct. It is controlled yes- but by a diligent doctor and rules they must adhere to and document properly.

Unfortunately many physicians in this area are unwilling to do the paperwork and charting required. And others here would just prefer to get their patients addicted so they keep coming back. This is malpractice in my opinion. Such as two of the local physicians that I know that prescribe their narcotics as 5x a day with only a one month supply and refuse to put their patients on a long acting opioid. This practice is not in the patients best interest.

I may have misread part of your original post. I'm assuming you are referring to this "Any clinician with a Schedule II DEA license can prescribe methadone for pain; a special license is only required to prescribe methadone for the treatment of addiction. In some jurisdictions, it is necessary to apply the words "for pain" on the prescription. "

The physicians that do this locally start their patients on a equianalgesic dose of methadose to what they were abusing - as for "pain control" then wean their dose as the do at treatment centers.

ms manners, babe you are wrong and I believe you are lying about being an RN. If you were you would know that it does in fact take a special DEA number to prescribe suboxone. Not just any doc can prescribe it and for the diary year they can only have 30 patients on suboxone. After the first year they can have no more than 100 suboxone patients. Also the docs must make sure the patient sees a certified addictions counselor at least once a month. Ms manners, please get your facts straight before trying to know it all

Family doctors cannot prescribe Suboxone. Suboxone can only be prescribed by doctors who are certified and licensed to prescribe Suboxone. These doctors are few and far between when you consider the very high demand. Suboxone and methadone are NOT the same. Anyone who believes this is ignorant of the facts. I go to Colombus. I'm not telling anyone where I go, but google Suboxone clinics in various areas and you'll probably find something. Most places have very long waiting lists, especially the places that accept medical cards. If you go to a doctor in OH and have a WV medical card, your card will not pay for your script. The reason WHY you would drive all the way to Colombus would be this: If you go to the methadone/Suboxone clinic in Huntington, you're required to show up every single day very early in the morning for at least a month or two before they'll begin giving you enough to last a couple weeks. There is another place in Huntington run by Prestera, but they only give you like 14 pills each week, you gotta worry about pill counts, they don't allow you to slide if you fail drug tests for marijuana, etc. This place in Huntington run by Prestera is like a full-time job. I've known people who had to drive to Huntingon three and four times a week. Most addicts don't have reliable transportation, so this is difficult. With all the NA meetings and group therapy, the program Prestera runs is like a full-time job. My doctor started giving me a month supply immediately.

Tweetybird is correct. and just for the record, Suboxone doesn't get you high in the same way methadone or heroin does, but it will make you nod out until you build up tolerance. I've been on boxes for YEARS. I've used methadone to get HIGH on more than on occasion
