hello folks
i am here to mingle with others and read how suboxone helped

i been addicted to hydro codeine since summer of 2006
as time went on i found every thing i owed was in the pawn shop
also found myself shutting out friends and family unless he/she was a dealer

i am a recording producer and independent recording artist
at first codeine was a wonder drug and helped me write and create and perform at shows.
as years past i lost all motivation to even touch a keyboard or microphone.

so i was sold a suboxone saying it will help with your withdraws ect ect
and it did ,sunday march 21st 2010 was my last dose of hydros
and the 22nd was my day i took half of the suboxone
and i felt this was it a way to kick the habit and get back what i lost

so i call my doctor and get in for a appointment on tuesday the 23rd
and i broke down and told him the truth that im addicted to hydros
he told me he cant prescribe suboxone but can help me.
so he refers me to a rehab center as a I.O.P.

tonight was my assessment and i go back tomorrow to being therapy
and hope sent to a doctor that perscibes me suboxone
so its been 3 days sober from hydros but im affraid i might relapse
if i dont get a suboxone soon.

wish me luck and ill be back to tell you the updates

IIREL,

I am glad you found us and felt comfortable introducing yourself. Welcome! Congratulations on getting started. This is a big step. I only wish that you didn't have to do this waiting game. That is pretty scary and unfortunately I don't know what I.O.P stands for. Either way, if you had an evaluation then I am surprised you didn't ask if they prescribe suboxone. My only concern for you is that you may be or go into withdrawal and if they don't prescribe you could have an even worse waiting game to get the suboxone legally. If it was me, I would ask. I know it probably feels strange like drug seeking or something but if they see it that way then they don't prescribe and it sounds like that isn't where you want to be. It isn't where I would want to be anyways.

I hope you will keep posting and let us know how all of this goes for you. Also, if you feel like you can't wait until the therapy appointment, you can always call ahead and ask if they prescribe or not. If not, you could spend part of your day finding a doctor who does if that is what you want to do.

This forum has been an amazing help and support to me. The people here are great and I think you will find they are supportive of everyone and genuinely want the best for YOU. Whatever that may be. I wish the best for you and look forward to hearing more about your journey.

Cherie

IIREL,

Welcome to the site. If you find that things do not go as planned, we have resources that will help you find a Suboxone prescribing physician in your area. IOP is a good option for recovery, but just in case you find it is not what best suits you in your journey, there are other options. You may hear things that distort the facts about Suboxone and here you will find accurate information. So just know you have options and if you need assistance, we are here to help.

Take Care, SW
