If I remember correctly (in the old days)If you did not agree with anything, You staged a sit-in or protested peacefully, boycotted, chained yourself to something,(Or Someone), chanted some thing, got on a Bus and went to Washington,DC, or in plain old Kentucky language, generally raised hell to get our point across. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it did not. That was the peacefully side of times. Then the Lone Ranger,Tonto, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry,The Green Hornet,Bud Abbott and Lou Costello and.....No that was another time.'Recon if we just said "NO". they would find another place to peddle their meds.?

Is this the same methadone clinic that all the other big threads are talking about?

One and the same. BTW, when the county and city decided they didn't want a methadone clinic here, the work on their building didn't stop. I don't know who is in the space where the clinic was supposed to be, but they have a bus and people in and out all day. The one thing they don't have is a sign telling who/what they are. Makes me wonder if we have exactly what we don't want!

We, those of us who pay taxes that is, will pay the legal bill for this and lose. You know just like the TEN COMMANDMENTS lawsuit. Remember we lost that and who was left holding the bag? GROW UP PC!!!! We accept tax money from packaged alcohol sales. Think about that. If you were so apposed to alcohol go tell your staste rep/judge exe/ city council rep to reject the tax money PC/Somerset receives from alcohol sales. I honestly thought by now it would have happened but you can NEVER underestimate ignorance/bootleggers/pastors

A methadone clinic simply substitutes methadone for heroin. So, instead of being high on heroin, they're high on methadone. Heroin is illegal, methadone is not. I can't see where giving one addictive drug instead of another benefits anyone...exceot the owners of the clinic.

So how can one who gets transitioned from being hooked on heroin to being hooked on methadone get off of being hooked from methadone?

Layla, What are you talking about?? A bus in front of the clinic?? You need to get your facts straight! The clinic has pulled out of somerset and is no longer in the community. If you don't have any idea what the clinic does (as evidenced by your post erroneously describing methadone treatment) you should quit posting!!

You are cordially invited to go to the PROPOSED clinic location and take a look for yourself. There is a small bus (12-16 passenger) that sits in the parking lot, along with a van. Neither vehicle has obvious markings. I doubt the resale shop needs a bus. BTW, why don't you educate the rest of us as to what a methadone clinic does?
