Has anyone heard of any Md's Or psychologist that would actually prescribe an addict an opiate like Hydrocodine for taper down purposes only. This way the individual doesn't have to go cold turkey?

In my exp I dont think theres anyway any doctor or psych would prescribe u something to wean yourself off UNLESS your currently going to a doctor that prescribes u the tabs. If you are then just tell him you would like to get off of the tabs(do not tell him its because u abuse them) and he will slowly taper you off of them(if you trust yourself to do that) but he will just give you a script to take home and expect you will take them as directed and if your absolutely positively ready then you will be able to handle doing that. If you dont go to a doc you can wean yourself off-get a bunch and make a plan of how many your going to take. You'll have to lower your dosage slowly but its hard so again you have to WANT to do it. Otherwise if you dont trust yourselfand your araid of Withdrawls try a methadone or subuxone clinic. You can look online for methadone clinics in your area and call them. after your intake youll get your first dose that day and they up your dose by 5 mg a day til your at a steady mg.... Im going now and it works great. Because methadone blocks your opioid receptors you could take one tab or ten oxys and you wont even feel them so if your at a steady dose you wont crave anything...

Hi: A psychologist isn't allowed to prescribe medications only Psychiatrists, but ANY good doctor should be able to put you on Suboxy! It is VERY good at getting opiate addicts OFF of opiates here is a link for you to look at. Hydrocodine, or Hydromorphcontin, is just a pain reliever and can STILL get addictive - it is a triplicate prescription. So ask your doctor for Suboxone OK And good luck!

Also - due to personal experience - when you are on this journey, what you have to think of is tricking your addicted brain. So as you start tapering down, cut your pills in half, so when you look into the container and see SO many pills your addicted brain actually relaxes - it is TOTALLY true! so good luck and health and sobriety to you! You CAN do it!
