Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

Once an addict always and addict, even years later. I’m not saying it cant or has never been done but I know that for my self, I tried so hard to be good and still ended up abusing and the whole cycle started again. I have chronic pain, and I cant take the medicine as directed, even if I had a doctor treat me there is no way he would give me the amount I need. I am on suboxone now and it does help with the pain some but not nearly enough, I am thinking of going on Methadone to help with the pain. I’m sorry if you are in pain and suffering, but you will probably end up suffering even more in the long run if you go back to taking the very pill that bit ya.
Best of luck
Great Job on the 2 weeks, How proud you must be! :bouncing:
