purdue pt assist

I was a former pt and got assistance from purdue manufacturing, until they cut me off due to being a veteran, I was told I had to go through the VA. After a three month wait and spending money out of pocket for meds,that pretty much bankrupted me , I was told that my board certified pain doctor was over prescribing me and was going to be cut down to 1/6th of what now taking. I did not want to leave this doctor in the first place and he is well within the guidelines of prescribing.I have had major back problems for over 20 years and have finally got to a point of some relief and they are telling me this is wrong. Although the VA doctor does have a serious drug phobia which includes a step towards methadone, ( that put me in a stupor when taking it some time ago ) I know he has an interest in my care but I can not after finally getting some relief agree with this course of treatment, any ideas?
