There were lots back there when I used to live there. Mostly hung out over there near the Pit row at the top of Beaver avenue and near that little barber shop in east beckley. Also use to hang out at the Super 10 in Crab Orchard alot. Cops never caught onto them down there

Rt 19 Daniels ... "Bar" opening up..Was painted blue, now its white. Used to be at one time the Ol Roadhouse.Already had a drug bust there while closed... the unofficial caretaker- meaning he couldn't get liquor license ect... in his name and didn't have anywhere to live so he stayed there rent free while this place was getting ready to open FOR THE PAST YEAR.. HE NOW LIVES IN THE HOUSE BEHIND THE BAR.. when he got 'busted' he was scared he was going to jail... now all you here from him is his "Lawyer" got them (police that busted him)on a technicality.(Sounds like a NARC to me).# maybe 4 different ppl were suppose to get the liquor license in their name to open the 'BAR". Wonder whose 'name' it finally did go in? Wonder whose name the utilities are in? Wonder if that same individual is still the unofficial caretaker? And wonder who is paying his rent at the house behind the bar... If undercover officers placed a female in the mix,... wouldnt take much-- to get her a place to stay too.. he's always letting ppl hang out there with him... since he dont pay the rent even...He talks a Big Talk... wonder whose name the utilities are in at the house... As for the landlord.. he's really old yet he knows exactly whats going on he just pretends he don't. He even has other rental property that the police were considering taking from him due to a different drug bust... undercover agents get in on this place they may be really surprised and the TALKING LINK.... lives in the house behind it.... Don't wonder "how I know" I just do & would love to see them ALL Taken Down without anyone getting off on technicalities... in the mean time if your just LOOKING for Drugs... go talk to him,.. he'll trust you just dont trust him...

Dr. Derakhshan. He comes in to the room on your first appointment with a perscription pad in hand... before you tell him what's wrong, he is ready to write down the Lortab or whatever pain stuff you want. I've seen it,,, and I have seen people I know become addicted to the drugs that are prescribed by people we are supose to trust. Most of the addiction in this area , in my opinion, is caused by doctors. It's unbelievable. And I agree about the meth clinic. I don't believe it's helpful at all.

That is still no excuse..I have been offered pain pills by different doctors and refused them. If the doctor does give you the script that doesn't mean you have to get them filled. These people know exactly what they are getting themselves into when they continue to take and abuse these pills.

It's like a free ultra cheap liquor store for black livered winos.

If they gave out hallucinogenic/narcotic cat turds, they'd run out every day.

It's not an excuse, but when you don't know anything about drugs, or how you can become addicted... you trust the person who tells you it's going to help you. Some people don't know what they are getting into. On the other hand, there is a point where when a person sees that it is becoming addicted, they should be able to stop before it becomes a problem... and sometimes it's a little too late.

If a stranger on the street gave you a pill and said it would make you better would you take it just because they said it would make you feel better? Every prescription comes with an insert of all the possible side effects, those that can be addictive say so. People need to take their heads out of the sand and learn about what they are taking. If you dont have the net, or a library card, you can always ask the pharmacist. They are always willing to teach somebody about their meds. There are a million excuses about becoming an addict, but I am not one to buy into any of them. I suffer with chronic pain daily because I am not going to be some pill head statistic.

Ya know, you don't have to have your head in the sand to not realize what a "DOCTOR" is giving you. It's really great the you don't want to become a statistic, and I'm sorry you have to live in pain everyday,,, but some people put all their faith in their doctor, and they don't think to research the medicine that is given to them. Not growing up around addictive pain medication and not knowing anything about it, you wouldn't think that anything your doctor prescribed would create a problem that was bigger than the issue you came in for in the first place. I could go on all night about this, but I'd rather not. I do agree with you that at a certain place in someones life, they do know better,,,, I do feel strong about my opinion that not everyone researches what the doctor prescribes. However, in the future I plan to look into medicine more carefully.

You don't have to research anything. The information is handed to you when you fill your script, so unless you can't read and you have a learning didability there is no excuse for it now days. Also I didn't grow up around addictions either, but I still know all about them just by watching TV, listening to the news, and watching friends and neighbors become addicts. Have you ever questioned your doctor on anything he says you need to take or anything he wants you to do as a part of your treatment? I don't have that much trust in my own family, let alone my doctor.

There is no need to be a smartass, I can read. I have never been addicted to anything in my life. I was referring to my now ex husband who lost his family, is home, and next will be his job if he don't get off the pills. I didn't learn about life through watching TV,,, thank God, and you wanna talk about someone having a learning disability? LOL! Its not my problem you have trust issues with your family, don't take it out on me. I voiced my opinion about who I thought was the biggest drug dealer in Beckley, and I have the right to do so. Sounds like you need a chill pill, yourself... gee, lady, get the corn cob out of your butt!!

I didn't mean to sound as if I was saying you couldn't read, sorry. I'm just saying that the drug stores gives this info out when you fill a script.I don't have trust issues with my family, I'm just saying that I'm not gonna trust anyone that much with something as dangerous as a drug addiction. I'm not trying to be mean to anyone or to be a smartass. I have family and friends that are drug addicts and I feel that they knew what they was getting into, that is all I'm trying to say. Sorry if I offended you, sure didn't mean to. I'm sorry that you took me the wrong way.

Go to the FMRS and tell them you are bipolar and they give you anything. My stepson was on 5 different meds(8 pills a day) and we had to give them to him based on the court order. But when school got out, we asked the doc could he stop taking them until school started back. Now he's only on 2 for adhd and his "anger". Opps, now its called bipolar. No longer goes to the FMRS either. We got him another doctor.

I don't know any drug dealers around here but I would say ANYONE out on the streets stopping at the homes in Glade or woodcrest at 2 or 3 in the morning bringing those "deliveries" would be a good place to start. ATTN BECKLEY POLICE JUST PARK OUTSIDE WOODCREST OR GLADE AND WAIT FROM 2 AM til 4 AM you will be amazed.... the speed limit there is 10 and 15 miles per hour you shouldnt have any problem pulling them over!

Bipolar, my ass. BP is an easy tag to stick on anybody for any kind of bad behavior. And, frankly, I'm sick of it. BP disorder is not that easily diagnosed. But, it's soooo easy for doctors to do the "treat 'em and street 'em" by sticking a bipolar disorder label on a patient and turn in their 3-5 whole minutes spent with a patient to the fed gov. for mega bucks.

I did landscaping work at flat top lake and in glade and woodcrest for 3 years. I was offered I would say 6 different times to be paid in Cocaine. I said ummmmm HECK NO. I just worked for 2 weeks here in the hot sun I would appreciate you writing out my paycheck as we had originally discussed so I can run down put my tax money in the bank and go to my house. It is absolutely unreal the drug runners that "make deliveries " to glade woodcrest etc. every single day. They have the exact same addictions as the folks in east beckley they just have the money to be able to make the dealers come to them. And they don't get 10 or 20 dollars worth of that crap they get 3 and 4 thousand at a time. And we would get there early in the morning to get set up. When we would come in our "bosses" dealers would still be in the driveway bringing stuff so they can get their bump before work that day.
