Default *Moved from another topic* Welcome Johanna

I was on subs for 3 years until I moved to WA state and had to come off them because it was so expensive ( they make sub treatment very hard here)and so I started to ween myself off them, but it was the worst thing ever. I was in so much pain for about 2 weeks that I went right back to where I started from with taking pain pills again.

I am trying to get back on the program, but there are not very many doctors in my area who prescribe subs and on top of that none of them take insurance. The one doctor I found cant see me for a couple of weeks and I have stopped taking pain pills and am starting to feel lots of pain. Any thoughts on what I should do? Anything will help me at this point.

It is very hard to find a good sub doc, but worth it when you do. keep checking the locator on thsi site too, docs area added every week or so.

Welcome to the board!!

Johanna, there also may be some doctors that aren't on the list that still take sub patients. You might want to make some calls to some physicians close to your area.
