Are you saying you are considering getting on Methadone to get off of Suboxone??   Using Methadone for almost any addiction, except possibly Heroin, is really jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.  Methadone has a place for very hard core Heroin addicts but almost every other drugs can be stopped with far less drastic measures.  Check out Sadinmichigan journal and see what others have gone through when trying to come off of Methadone.   Wishing you all the best.  Oh, someone will come along with the information you are seeking.

Doctors in the United States are forbidden by law to prescribe methadone for narcotic maintenance.....they are only allowed to prescribe methadone for chronic pain.........sorry .........

not for me...for my boyfriend.  he is addicted to heroin.  all painkillers but heroin too.  he isnt on suboxone right now.  id prefer suboxone (i mean, id prefer HIM to be on suboxone)  but honestly, we cannot afford it.  methadone is cheaper......suboxone docs want TONS of money upfront...i mean like $900-$1,500 and that isnt going to happen.

I never have - but you should be able to google "behavioral health" and find that Information. Or you also should be able to go plain language and just ask google where they are ........................

U think things r hard for ya right now wait until u get on methadone. It was a nightmare for me. Thought I was doing the right thing but I was wrong. I was on it for two years which were spent in isolation in my bedroom liging n he!!. That was a trap unlike any other drug I'd been on. Please do ur research b4 u make a final desicion.
