If anyone needs to get off opiates, Subutex prevents withdrawals. You can remain on a maintenance of Subutex for pain. To locate a doctor who prescribes this med, do a web search using google, entering addiction specialist or addiction doctor then the area where you live. Doctors must be specially licensed to prescribe it. You are much better off seeing a addiction specialist because they are familiar with the whole process. I would not try to use a doctor who doesn't normally use Subutex or work with opiate addiction. You need someone who really understands and can give you the proper support.
