Addiction & Recovery board


I know I can't do it at home alone, i wouldn't put the kids through that. There is a very long waiting list for a methadone program, and the nearest one is an hour and a half away, but I don't want to be on it. My husband uses occasionally, and has never had any addiction issues. I'm trying to use just enough to stay well, and taper off slowly. I don't want to be sick when my grandmother is here, but I don't want to be on it for three more weeks. Right now I've only been using for about four months, and I've only been strung out for about a month. I need about a quarter gram a day to stay well, alot more to feel it. My husband is very supportive, but is on a tight deadline to complete several jobs. He's a contractor and only this past year has been getting his own jobs and doing well, there's no way he can take time off for me to check myself in until next month. But you know that addictive personality. I want what I want when i want it, and I want to be clean NOW. I don't want to wait.

Is it common for treatment facilities to prescribe suboxone on an outpatient basis? We're in a very small, uptight town, and I have state medicaid, not real health insurance, so I'm limited as far as who will accept it. I've kicked before using hydrocodone, darvocet, ect... to take the edge off and xanax to help me sleep, and this time I haven't been on it for very long, so it shouldn't be that bad. Well, my husband is behind me saying, "well I hope you didn't use my name in there..." so I guess I better stop writing. Thanks.
