My office visit is 350 a month. I have no insurance and also pay for my medicine too. It's a whole lot but I got to do what I got to do, there's no other clinics in my area. Also my clinic requires counseling free at the clinic.I sure wish getting ur life bk together was cheaper lol been at my clinic for over 2 yrs.

I pay $150 a month and that is if they do not drug test me. if the office decides to drug test I have to pay an additional $30. So $180 on a monthly basis. This does not include having to pay for my meds. Thanks goodness I have insurance which pays for 100% of my zubsolv when I use the online coupon.

I am in the process of looking elsewhere that the doctors office will take my insurance too. I would like to get the cost down as much as possible. Especially since I plan on staying on zubsolv for a long period of time or forever.

It really is a shame how the cost of getting on ORT can cost so much that the addict sees it as too much $$.

For me it does beat what I was paying on pills which was upwards of $2,000 a month. Yup , I would pay that just to feel normal.

I know this is a really old thread but thought I would say how grateful I am reading all of your posts.
I live in Australia, never have to pay for a doctor visit and only pay $25 per week for suboxone strips, regardless of the dosage.
