hey all!!!! first time here. so glad there are resources like this to help people struggling with addiction. i've been addicted to pain killers and pretty much every opiate on the planet for about 7 years now. up until this past month i've kept it a secret from everybody in my life because i was scared to seem like a junkie or disappoint my parents. i'm 34 years old and have found a special person that i want to spend the rest of my life with. in order to do this i've decided to stop using and attempt to gain control of my life. i've finally built up the courage and made an appointment to see a suboxone dr. unfortunately he can't see me for two weeks! not sure how i'm gonna make it. the past few years i've been performing a balancing act between pain killers and suboxone(both obtained illegally). i'm ok with WDing for 24 hours before my appt, but only if i know there's relief waiting for me at my appt. not sure if they'll drug test me, but if they do and they find suboxone or opiates already in my system will they deny treatment? i'll be in WD regardless, i'm sure.... i hope not, since i'm pleading for help. don't know many people that have made all the right decisions that go see suboxone drs. thanks!!!!!

HEY, and welcome to the forum..... we r all here to help you and congrats on ur decision to helping yourself get better and lead a better life... I too was going down you path and chose suboxone to help me be normal again... Just make sure you choose that you want to go the suboxone root because when i did i didnt really know much about it. I never new really that the withdrawls and paws do take longer to get out of ur system than reg upiates. but if taken properly and lowering your dose over a long period of time SHOULDNT (im still waiting to find out) be as worst as reg opiates.... i kinda wish i chose the 5 day detox way and tryied to deal with the paws as best as i could but everyone is different.... anyway good luck and again there are alot of great people on here who know there shit and they will be glad to help as they did me when i first got on here.....
oh and if they do drug test you the first day they will DEF NOT deny treatment thats y ur there. just make sure you are in full withdrawl before you go in cause ull be just be sitting there till u are... i actually made my appt to early and ended up waiting an extra 5 hrs to be in full withdrawl before he inducted me.....

Thanks MES999!!!!! I'm aware of the sub WDs, but really feel at the end of my rope. I'm scared of it and hope my Dr will be sensitive to the fact that I'm looking for long term treatment...i feel i need it. Just wasn't sure if they would care if I was WDing from subs or vicodin. Like I said, i've landed a great partner and a wonderful job...i owe it to myself to stick with a good program and stop hiding from ppl when i'm in WD. I can say I have a 'cold' only so many times! Thanks so much for taking time to reply.
