If you look to the right, on this very page, you will see a purple, vertical strip. "Opioid Addiction Treatment Locator" with a white box underneath where you can enter your zip code. I found my doctor listed on suboxone.com they also have a system to match you to local doctors. As far as affordable, you will probably need to call a few of them and compare rates. Good luck!

http://suboxone.com/patients/opioid_..._a_doctor.aspx

It seems the link I gave you has a larger directory of providers then the locator on this page (I just tested it out with my zip code-my Dr isn't listed at all on here but was on the link)

Suboxone isn't available as a generic. Subutex is, but I think that many Suboxone doctors will not prescribe that. Suboxone has a program if you are uninsured and meet certain standards to cover the cost of the medication, but I believe the doctor visits you would still pay for. I don't have insurance, so I pay for my visits (and many providers don't accept insurance) but my union gives me Rx coverage up to $2500 a year, so luckily, that covers the medication for me.

http://www.needymeds.org/drug_list.t...&name=Suboxone

This is a patient assistance program that is, I believe, run by the drug company. I looked into it when I met my cap on my insurance, but did not qualify because I had rx coverage. If you have no coverage at all, and your income is within the guidelines, go for it and apply. Apply even if you are not sure. You never know!

Hi Joemomma, welcome. To add to the information krystaalexandria has given, please take a look at this link, it has different ways to find treatment:

http://www.addictionsurvivors.org/vb...ad.php?t=21259

You can also call local hospitals and see if they have a referral line.

There's also this locator:
http://www.treatmentmatch.org/local
http://buprenorphine.samhsa.gov/bwns_locator/index.html

You could try calling 211 - the United Way helpline in your state.
One last thing is the NJ Addiction Services website:
http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/das/home/

Hope that's helpful.

Nancy

So you call, and ask their prices, and if they only prescribe Suboxone, or if they will prescribe Subutex. You never know.
