A few thoughts-- there are a couple directories that find doctors who prescribe Suboxone-- try www.naabt.org or www.suboxone-directory.com.  Also try my site-- www.suboxforum.com-- you'll find a section where people can ask for help in specific geographic regions.

When you find a doctor, be sure to value the chance to stay off opioids.  Nothing is more frustrating for doctors than to see people finally get a spot in a program-- and then refuse to follow the rules.  I do not mean to suggest that you did anything like that-- just pointing out that many docs have a 'one strike' policy.  I don't agree with that, but there is nothing I can do about it.

Would you be willing to answer a few questions for me about drug addiction whilst being a parent? It is for a school project and would be much appreciated! :)
