Ahhh...the sweet sound of DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR ;)
Hey Rockstar- guess what? there are HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of studies that have been done that have PROVEN that not only do addicts come by their "addictions" genetically, but new research is showing that childhood trauma (loss of a parent, abusive environment, mother's illness during pregnancy) often causes these genes to "switch on" which is why in a family of two kids, one will become an addict, the other might not. Also, have you ever heard of "dual diagnosis"? I thought not. Look it up and keep looking until you find some FACTS you can spout off rather than your embarrassing lack of knowledge. P.S. Did you know that in the last two years the results of several studies have shown that people who become addicted to prescription painkillers (but don't do other drugs and never have) are not actually "addicts" the way society defines that term. In fact, it has been proven that once the physical withdrawal is alleviated (sorry about the big word- "alleviated" in this context means "as soon as the big owies from the opioid withdrawal die down"- I'll try to use smaller words next time "RockStar" ) in these patients they cease to fit the description of an addict, and in fact treatment and/or 12 step programs DO NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE in their continued sobriety. These people who "chose" to be born genetically inclined towards addiction to painkillers have an 80% LIFETIME sobriety success rate. As the head researcher put it, this select group of people are not delusional, or dysfunctional; once the physical dependence and subsequent cravings are eliminated they return to the reasonable, sane person they were BEFORE their bodies and minds became addicted to opioids. In EVERY SINGLE CASE that was studied it came to light sooner or later that the patient used painkillers to self-medicate a debilitating mental illness that they had not yet been diagnosed with at the time. When stabilized on the APPROPRIATE medication for their mental illness, their permanent recovery rose to 100%, and STAYED THERE. What does this mean? It means you have NO idea what you're talking about! oh, and one more thing: a month of taking ANY amount of opioids is not going to affect anyone in a manner that is even comparable to the agony that a detoxing opiate addict experiences. Also, dear RockStar, it is also true that if taken orally and as directed OxyContin is actually EASIER to get off of than short-acting opioids; it's that half-life thing. As a former oxycodone addict/dependent (started out prescribed for chronic pain...became addicted due to untreated bi-polar disorder and ADHD so severe I literally could not initiate basic MOVEMENTS; focusing was out of the question without medicinal help. I spent 3 years trying to find a doctor who would take cash without me having been a "previous patient"; I begged several doctors, spent thousands at the Community Health Clinic, and guess what? No one would help me, because without insurance I didn't matter. Eventually I gave up, and since they DID give me painkillers for my physical symptoms, I began to "use" them for my ENTIRE illness, when what I needed was a different medication entirely! I have never taken a single illegal drug in my life; not even once. There are many reasons people become addicted to painkillers, and almost none of them are a reflection of that person's character, strength, or intelligence. For the record, I'll take my history of being "druggie" over your lack of empathy, honesty, and overwhelming IGNORANCE any day; thanks for reminding me how fortunate I am.

I know someone who was on it for a week and someone else that was on it for 6 months. I think it depends on your doctor, how heavily you used, and your situation in general. I was on 16mg at first, then tapered down 4 mg a week. I was a pretty heavy user for 4-5 years and got to the point that I was absolutely done! I think that's an important part of it too. I tried kicking a few times before but it was always for reasons other than myself. A good support system is essential also. Don't misunderstand me, it wasn't a walk in the park and 2 years later I still think about getting high every day. Then I remind myself of the hell I lived in while using, look at how far I've come and how much better my situation is now. The suboxone will help you get through the physical part of the addiction but the mental and behavioral part is up to you and is something you will have to work on daily. The first step is always the hardest and realizing you need help is a huge step. Be proud that you're heading in the right direction. If you have any other questions or just need somebody to talk to about your recovery feel free to e-mail me madamebutterfly12@yahoo.com. I wouldn't mind helping you out at all because I know it isn't easy. I don't think I could have done it without support from others who have been there. Best of luck to you!
hi, my name is rita. good words u had there....ive been on the suboxone for almost 4yrs,iam tired of taken them... so iam just thinkin bout gettin off them,what u think?i have to pay out of pocket 160$ a month,way to much. but my meds are free. i cant find a doc anywhere who takes my caresoure insurance.but iam still lookin, if i dont find one soon,iam just goin off them. to much trouble,& just another pilll to be addicted to. ya no?and i wish you all the luck!!!!!!!!!! thanks for the positive feedback........

Stay away from Methadone, you are trading one addiction for another, methadone is tougher to get off of than narcotics.

I've never used suboxone, I quit cold turkey, I would not tell anyone it was "easy" but I can tell you it was worth it.
From Fentanyl to Vicodin I pretty much ran the gamut.
Once the withdrawal starts to ease (either cold turkey or with help) you will feel that "emptiness" the first reaction... old desires.
Don't go there, get out and enjoy nature, time with family, take up a new hobby, keep your mind occupied.
Make new friends, the old ones will only lead you back to where you came from.
My biggest help was my Faith, I don't push belief on anyone, it worked for me and helps me daily.
I have been "clean" for many years now.
Once you have your life back, be determined to keep it no matter what.
A life controlled by drugs isn't yours, it belongs to your addiction.
True happiness doesn't come from a pill, a line, a rig, or a bottle.
With each step be proud of yourself, you are doing something very few can do, beating addiction.
You can do it, many have and many will stop abusing drugs, be one of those that win.
There are many people out here who do care that you may never know, others that have been there too, some that never have.
They all want you to have your life back, just because we care.
Best of luck, my Prayers are with each of you.
I agree. I made my mind up that I was getting clean and went to detox for 6 days then went cold turkey. I couldn't see taking one pill to get off another as a way to get clean. I have seen way to many people abuse suboxone to get a buzz. My mom has been on them for a long time (she gets hers from a dealer) I know she will never get clean because of them. I am 5 years 2 months clean now from pure determination and strength. I feel that going through my withdrawals cold turkey gives me an edge to stay clean. Reminds me that I only have to experience that pain again if I use again. If it were easy with no pain using drugs to get clean I might have went back to using.

can't is not a word in recovery. If you are supplying the money you could wean the money away. Its wont be an easy road. Are they ready to quit? Have they had enough of being miserable? If they are unemployed you could put them in a room and wean the dope away and treat the symptoms of withdrawal individually. Most times a family member wont be able to do this. They are likely to give in or be the blunt of the abuse. from the addict. You may need professional help. The harder the experience is getting clean I believe the better success rate you will have. The urge will always be there. At times be very great even after 7 or 8 months clean. You have to be strong and keep moving it will pass. Some people have been fine for better than a year or more, then experience withdrawal symptoms out of the blue. They need to be surrounded by a good support system and new friends. But as already said they have to want to be sober.

Dr. McGuiness, Wheelersburg Medical Center. Takes all types of insurance & medical cards I think. But only make an appt if you are absolutely certain you want to be drug free. He is very mean & straight to the point at first- e wants to SEE that your serious. But after you do what your told, he is so nice & an excellent doctor. He saved my life, my marriage- everything! Even tho he says I did all the work, that he is just a little man with a pen & paper. But the sickness is gone & he monitors me monthly. 77 days clean for the first time in over 5 years, I am so happy with my life I can't contain my happiness! He does make u go to 90 meetings in 90 days- at first I was like WHOA! BUT It has been the best thing for me, met some wonderful people who are just like me & don't judge. You also have to do "homework" each month (movies & 2 pg reports, EASY) & buy the AA big book- but he is truly a godsend who wants to help people. That's why he takes insurance instead of cash, wonderful man! Hope you all can get your lives back like I did- GOOD LUCK!:-)

I'm all for folks gettin off dope. Never used it myself but come on, is it really fair peoples tax payer funded medical cards are bein used to kick the habit? I was on morphine for a month around the clock, oxycontin 80's, and percocet taking one or the other every 6 hours for 3 months and when my presciptions ran out I didn't withdraw I dealt with my pain of my injuries for which it was prescibed. Not trying to sound mean or heartless. Just some food for thought.
You didn't withdrawel because your doctors combo was meant to keep you maintained after surgery & you never had a problem. My dr kept me on meds for 10mths after surgery, steel plate & pin finally put in my ankle & I thought I was dying to only find out that I was withdrawing was embarassing! I never even casually drank, let alone use drugs. It grabbed me hard! And the suboxone saved my life. It takes time & noones perfect but everyone thats jumping hoops to get help to live a clean life are saving taxpayers compared to the many whose getting narcotics, which are always covered by the medical card! And the medical card pays the dr visit for the narcotic pill people also. Which will last a lifetime compared to the few yrs a suboxone pt will need to live a clean, good life.
