To me this is an awfully backwards way of Random Bottle Recalls defeating the surprise attack....because in all actuality you know what to expect when to call etc....
Well exactly what I was thinking!! What's the point of having call back's if people know when to expect them all the time, plus the frequency of them sounds ridiculous.
Far better, if they are going to do call backs (which I'm not sure I agree with anyway) to do them less often and when people don't know they're happening.
We don't have call backs here, but then the maximum you can get with methadone is weeklies. You can get sometimes 1 month with Bupe, but only if you've been in treatment and ultra compliant for eons.
I am going to ask, given that I now know Bupe people get monthlies, if I can get fortnightly. I don't see why it would be a problem, as I have all negative UA's for years, and am never a "problem" for the clinic.
@Kjacobs - I know how you feel. It's a difficult situation and you feel like, what is going to change if I file a grievance.
The least that can happen is that the clinic make sure that they tell all patients that they are calling on a private number, and maybe they will re look at the complete loss of your take homes?
I think that in other clinics, for this kind of situation, a patient would lose their TH's for 30 days, and then would start again but phased down a level. Not having to start right from freaking scratch.
Did you sort out what will be happening for your sister's wedding?
