legal question about methadone and siboxone
I was on heroin and then started taking methadone.  Got into some legal trouble and knew I needed to get clean to avovid jail.  I have 2 to 3 weeks before court so I went to a doctor to get on siboxone cause I heard it doesn't show up on opiod drug tests.  After my 3rd attempt, failed again.  Each time I was sent into immeditately near death withdrawals.  I want to just give up and go back to methadone but if I get drug tested through court it will show up.  If anyone has any advice that has been through a similar situation I would welcome ANY advice.  I'm desparate and need help getting clean or at least getting around a court drug test.  Someone please HELP ME!!!!!!

methadone is like atleast 24-36 hours if regular use. i dont understand if it is medically prescribed why it would be a problem. did they tell you that you cant be on methadone. the court tests will show exactly what opiate you are taking and how much is in you it wont just say opiates.  the court should be happy you are on methadone. talk to your lawyer or public offender, i mean defender, or call the prosecutors office. if your legally taking methadone get a note and you should be ok. dont try to beat the court drug test with any of that **** they sell at the head shops to mask or dilute. it will show up and they will violate you immediately. in ohio they watch you ****. i have used fake urine with hand warmers wrapped around a thin bottle for jobs. but that dont work if some dude or chick is starring at your package while you urinate.
