Customer Question
Hi I just moved...

Hi I just moved back to franklin indiana with my husband. Over in Australia you saw a regular substance abuse doc and they prescribe methadone tablets! I can't find a doctor they say they are full, but to go to the clinic on 46th street because it's awful, is there anyway u can help me find a doctor that will prescribe it here as I have all my records and dont want to relapse or go through withdrawls! Plz let me kno if u know u can point me in the right direction

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I saw one yesterday and she said no, I am on methadone

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had the gastric bypass which started this whole addiciton; I'm Mormon I dnt smoke, drank or done any other substances in my life Pain pills destroyed me

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
