I can’t tell you his real name for concern of being sued by him, but my first introduction to pain meds came from a man I call “Dr. Drug.” I had these dehabilitating migraines on a weekly basis. I was always with a sick headache. So Dr. Drug wrote a script for Duragesic patches which is fentanyl. I did not know it at the time. I did not realize what he was doing to me, setting me off on a journey through hell with a full blown opioid addiction. Fentanyl is much stronger than heroin. I wish I had known that. I would have refused to take the medication. Anyway, I told him I did not like the patches so he gave me fentanyl lollipops. I kid you not. I got pain relief from it all right and as high as one could probably be. I started sucking on these addictive lollipops even when I didn’t have a migraine. Then I knew I had a problem. I decided that since Dr. Drug was fueling my addiction I decided to stop seeing him.
I went into methadone treatment through the pain specialist of the Northern California region for one of the largest hospitals in the state.
Funny thing is, when I complained that I wanted off the methadone too, my pain specialist urged me to take more.
It took several years to get sober, but I finally did it. I couldn’t afford to go to a rehab center and my insurance didn’t cover medical detoxing.
So, after years of intensive research, I developed the Reichert Regimen here at ADDICTION PRESCRIPTION. I was able to safely and conveniently get off opioids with minimal withdrawals. My purpose is to share this knowledge and plan with others struggling with opioid addiction.
