Tell them just what you have told us...You are an opiate addict, you need help. You need to start looking NOW for a dr..Now before you start useing again.
Will you find a dr who wont treat you? Maybe, but that kind of dr or clinic isnt what you wa t anyway. Tells me he/she/tbey dont know how opiate addiction works..start calling my friend and save your life!!!!!..honesty...and tbe truth...do it and do be afraid....razor....

Any knowledgeable sub doctor understands that addiction is an uncurable, chronic, relapsing, brain disorder. Therefore, any sub doctor should be able to understand an addict needing the help of suboxone maintenance to stay off your drug of choice. My personal doctor has said to me before that he totally understands why people are getting it off the street. He says that if his family member was addicted, he would do anything to help them. If you speak with a doctor that doesn't understand how you have handled your addiction, he/she probably is not a great doctor in other ways too.

All you need to say is that you are already on Suboxone but want to do it the legal and right way. You'll find a doctor.

Welcome here,
