I was caught on the oxy train  and did not want anything to do with meth. 
bup wasn't approved for treating dependency but I found a clinic that sold 
it and rx'd it for "pain" management. It was sold as non addicting or light 
compared to other drugs.  I read the lit in the packages and it stated w/ds 
were light. I was also introduced to benzos at the same time, all new stuff 
for me.  I just knew I had to lose the oxys b.4it killed me.  I now know bup 
is way bad, most providers won't touch you, my stint w/ IBO damn near killed 
me although Tommy, the provider was great.  I d/n realize what a number I 
had done on myself.  I think I need 3 weeks to clear myself at my age and 
only had 10 days b/c of work.  I fear for my life and profession. Anything 
you can throw my way would greatly be appreciated, I.a. titrate schedules, 
etc.I think I'm screwed and want to live again. Can't do IBO b/c c/no get a 
short acting opiate in the bible belt and job requirements. I  truly fear 
for my life. This body is beat. God help me and the others, wish I could go 
to Sara's as she has the handle on this poison. That's my story . Life is a 
chore,  hope it sheds insight into your work and saves my arse.  I was 
desparate. Help if you can, advice, etc. I'm here by my own hand, probably 
die by it. Don't mean to be a downer for the list, just telling a story that 
may help others.  Help is needed. rwd
