What part of Ohio are you in? Has he looked into going to a methadone clinic? I am a patient of a methadone clinic and it has changed my life drastically for the better. I would definitely recommend it to anyone whom is suffering through opiate addiction. I know how your son feels and I sympathize with him and you because the family goes through just as much pain and suffering as the addict does.

Dr.'s are not allowed to prescribe methadone for addiction, only pain. It is against the law...I am prescribed for pain, and I have to drive two and a half hours one way to go to a pain clinic every three months to get my scripts..There has got to be a clinic somewhere even if you have to make a long will be worth it if he really wants to get help

Also, if he gets detoxed there wont be a need for methadone...I have a son who went to detox and to rehab, now to meetings..there has to be more of a plan than just getting on methadone if you really want to help your son..Start looking into rehabs in your area, it will be worth it as a mother to not have to worry if you are going to get a phone call that something terrible has happened...believe me, I know

Yes Dr.'s can prescribe Methadone for addiction but it has got to be administered in a clinical setting.

Yes, no kidding. I think I said that when I said that they should look for a clinic in their area..and obviously it is from a Dr. You cannot just make an appt. to see a doctor, and go in like you are going in to be treated for a sore throat, and tell him you are addicted to drugs and would like to be put on methadone. Dr.'s are not allowed to write scripts for it unless you are taking it for pain, which is what methadone was originally made for. You have to go to a clinic and they will help you from there.

Yes, we are saying the same thing. But to get back to the task at hand which is to help this mother find some help for son.

@candi Have you ever heard of Suboxone? It can be even helpful for patients than Methadone can be (depending sever the addiction is.) Here is a link for everything you need to know about it.
Good Luck!

The information reported here by our site users is correct, there are federal laws governing the use of Methadone and under those, a doctor can only prescribe for addiction if they are certified to do so and it is done in a clinical setting.

These laws require regular drug testing for other substances and they limit the amount of take home medication that can be given to anyone. It can take almost a year, before someone is allowed to have a full month worth of take home doses.


Are there any comments or questions?

Listed below are a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results:

You can give this other page a try too if you come up with different results for some reason or another:

Lastly, here is one other link to Ohio pain management clinics. They have a number of locations in the state of Ohio, that may be worth checking out:

I hope this helps! It's always good to have back up in case you need to find another pain management doctor or clinic in the near future.

Cindy, I live in Ohio too. I go to a clinic in Toledo, which is 60 miles from where I live. Recently I lost my medicaid insurance and besides paying the clinic, they werealso paying for my transportation. Now I am facing a dilemma. I have been taking taking methadone for almost 20 years and along WITH COUNSELING, has worked for me! Of course not everyone wants or needs maintennace like I do and I do NOT recommend taking it for that long to anyone..that was my choice and now I am petrified of not being able to get it anymore and am facing a possible horrible withdrawal sickness which I know I will not be able to handle. I am not trying to scare you or your son from going this route for treatment, but please be aware of the consequences and all that comes with this treatment. Ohio doesn't make it any easy either..I am also trying to find a doctor that may possibly prescribe it to me. I have one thing going for me...there may be loop-holes that may allow a doctor to do this being I have been taking methadone for all those years. But anyway....I wish you good luck and IF you find a doctor that does, let me know too!

I'm in a similar situation to the post made by Richard. I feel that the clinic that I am currently in has become too invasive in their treatment towards the patients. This has occurred within the last few years. To Richard: If you like, contact me thru my email and I'll give you my phone number. I'm in the Columbus clinic presently but feel that I may have to leave soon and I don't know where I would go. I'd like to compare clinics and talk to other patients that go to them, not just call up and get my information from the various nurses that work at them.
