 Post subject: Is There Anything We Can Do?
PostPosted: Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:59 pm 
With all the information we have here on our forum it seems most of it goes to waste concerning the DEA, or any government entity when deciding how best to handle the opiate crisis.

So many doctors will only accept cash, which I do understand to some extent depending on services rendered like our own Dr. Junig. But a lot of others only want the money and it makes me wonder if they are really ...

 Post subject: Nursing and Suboxone
PostPosted: Thu Jan 19, 2017 12:02 am 
Can a person who is prescribed suboxone get liscensed as a nurse? Does it vary by state? I am particularly talking about the state of South Carolina. I called the nursing board and did not get a difinitive answer. They said it's up to your employer if your already a nurse. For people who aren't a nurse yet and are taking sub then it's on a case by case basis. If prescribed sub as an ...

 Post subject: HELP Hawaii effectively banning outpatient treatment!!
PostPosted: Sat Sep 17, 2016 1:53 am 
Saw my sub Dr today. He told me some new gungho agent in the Hawaii Narcotics Enforcement Division has decided to make it his mission to ruin thousands of peoples' lives. Hawaii revised statues apparently don't have a buprenorphine provision--the law currently still says narcotics can't be prescribed for detox or maintenance. We have Walgreen's, CVS, and a few dozen independent pharmacies. Walgreen's has, after a call from the NED agent, STOPPED dispensing suboxone for ...

PostPosted: Fri Aug 26, 2016 3:19 am 
So, I wont go into my full story, but I first discovered bupe in 2009, when I had been clean for 8 months from a 300mg/day OxyContin habit. I was in a drug court program for 18 months and my dad got sick and passed away. I had a 20 year prison sentence over my head if I didn't complete the program. I started buying suboxone from a friend and took them at first for ...
