Man that defeats the whole purpose.....Unless you were on Meth...you only need 18-24 hours off of opiates.........but i have heard of doctors getting you to go real far into w/d so that when they give you the sub...you think they are gods and it is the greatest thing in the world...Its a mental game.....

I might be wrong...so if i am i'm sorry....i'm a little angry sometimes.

I am not sure where you are going. I had suboxone treatment to get off of oxycontin. I was not told anything like that. I took my last one the evening before I went to treatment. I destroyed the rest.  I know they can tell by your vitals because your b/p,pulse, and temp will all be ELEVATED if you have not had any for 3 days. I do not know why they told you that nor why they would refuese you. Is this an in or out patient treatment?
