Well every doctor is different. I'd say "come clean" sugar. I mean Doctor gonna find out either way. If you are really only trying to be opiate free and you have a doctor that does not believe that Pot is a "gateway drug" then it should be ok. Did you sign anything saying you would refrain from smoking weed? My doc. never ever tested me for anything not even opiates. However, I live in Ca. and weed is practically legal. I do not know about where you live. Honesty is the best policy. I mean you are in treatment for addiction. Obvioulsy you are not going to be a saint. lol... good luck & best wishes.

maybe call the clinic, and 'anonymously' ask what happens if someone on the suboxone program tests positive for weed? Just say your curious, give a fake name if you have to.
then, maybe you'll know...

cuz Id find out first if they will in fact kick you out, for a 'first time offense'

My doctor uses the 'three strikes' rule. but he already gave me a 'strike' once for not having ALL my meds with me. I only carry the days worth at a time, just because. and the clinic had me come in early, cuz he was taking vacation.

ANYWAYS, just a thought.

maybe itd be a way to find out, without coming clean just yet

In my opinion you should come clean first thing when you see him/her. This is very early in your treatment and you don't want to start out on the wrong foot. You want to form a good, trusting relationship with your doctor. Tell him/her what happened and be humble about it (at least that's what I would do). Explain what happened and maybe (with any luck) your doctor will help you work through what happened and maybe figure out what triggered you. That's what an addiction-treatment provider SHOULD do for you. They shouldn't drop you at the first signs of difficulty. That doesn't help you in your recovery.

Good luck and please do let us know how it goes.
