When I first got on Suboxone my first Sub-Doc made me call and sign up for this "here to help program." I guess it's from Suboxone...A counselor is supposed to call you and talk to you...Well, most of these people are just reading from a book and telling me what I already know. They never called when scheduled...Sometimes it would be on the day but four hours early, sometimes it would be a week later...At first they said I'd have my own person that I'd talk too everytime...It was a different person every time...None of them were former addicts and it was RIDICULOUS. I don't know if the Doctor gets money for getting patients to join the program or what since before he'd prescribe them to me he made me call this program and I think I had to give them my doctors name. but I just think it's stupid. I got a new sub doc because I moved and he hasn't even heard of it. The last time I talked to them was about in August and he said he'd call me 2 weeks from then and I'm still waiting for a call back...I don't really care since it was literally the dumbest thing in the world. The guy was on the phone telling me the defintion of addiction and why i'm on suboxone...Really? Yeah, dude I have no idea in the world how I ended up here...Please, tell me how I got here!!!!

Has anyone else had experienced with this pathetic attempt at "Help?"

Maybe the counselors I talked too were just inept I don't know but I'm personally a a fan of the belief that if you're a drug counselor then you should be a former druggie.

i sorta had the same thing but it wasnt the here program but the same site they were suppose to call me back on a daily basis to see if i had made an appt. but they only called back once and they were not very helpful they gave me numbers to dr that no longer practiced the sub treatment or most of them were full had to basically help myself and look up dr on my own and eventually found one but ne ways i could imagine were this program wouldnt call u back b/c they were suppose to call me back several times and the one time they did it was at 8 at nite a day after they were suppose to call and i told them noon would b a good time to call and after that call they were suppose to call the next day and havent heard from them since
