Dr. Gary Shearer-does anyone have anything to say about this so-called Dr.? I hear that he is the one trying to open a methadone clinic in Latonia!! His office in Florence is already filled with Drug-Addicts including one of my family members that he got hooked on methadone!!!! Business must be booming for him-he will get rich off a whole new bunch of addicts!!! Please everyone share your stories about this monster!!!

Please stop trying to get attention by posting information about something you (apparently) don't know anything about. To read more about it, there is already a discussion started about the clinic in Latonia -- go there and read, read and read some more. If you do not understand about addiction, read the obituaries and on any given day, you will be reading about a drug overdose and not know it. Just remember, addicts are; the neighbor, the mail man, the baby sitter, the store clerk, the cousin, the mother, the .... you get the picture. Addiction does not discriminate. There are also other forms of risk reduction treatment for the addict, Suboxone and Subutex. The treatment is the same however as of now the misunderstanding of this drug is not as big as it is for methadone. These forms of risk reduction treatments are there for a reason, to treat a disease and this disease is addiction ... YES it is a disease.

"Counselor" you are full of SHIT!!!!! I Do know something about methadone-my 70 year old mother is addicted to it!!! Given to her for "pain"!!!! Now as I stated in my previous post she is a sad, pitiful, pathetic person as I'm sure YOU must be if you are defending it with so much passion!!!! I read an obit the other day about Mike Starr-celebrity rehab patient- he OD'd on what??? METHADONE!!!! Just like Anna Nicole Smith!!! This is only a way for losers like yourself to continue to get high!!! You know it and so does everyone else!!!! Don't give anyone your SOB-STORY because we all know that all you want is to get wasted!!!!! You and your kind are the ones doing anything to get money to get your "fix"!! This includes stealing anything you can because you can't get or hold a job!! Noone wants to hire a METH addict!!!! I'm sure you are soooo excited because there is another place to get your DRUGS!!!! That's All you care about!!! Let me guess, you are also probably on welfare, medical cards and anything else to support your "disease"!!!! Why don't you and all your meth addicts get out and get a job and deal with life and it's problems like everyone who isn't on drugs???? It's because you can't handle it and it's easier to just walk around numb!!! Oh, the address on your post doesn't surprise me either!!!! You picked the right area to live in to support your habit. Oh, and Latonia will be really close and convenient for you to get your next supply!!! You will probably be there on opening day-maybe you should "camp-out" to make sure they don't run out!!!! I hope that you don't actually "counsel" people!!!

This is in reply to shut ups post. You do realize that there is a Subutex/ Suboxone clinic in Erlanger next to Superbowl. I am truly sorry to hear about your mothers addiction. It must be heartbreaking to see her live with this and feel powerless to help her. I lost a close family member to a methadone overdose. He left behind an infant son and it destroyed his wife and really hurt our family. unfortunately he was abusing methadone and mixing it with other drugs, it cost him his life. Please understand addiction is a DISEASE and is treated as such. I am all for MMT for an addict; only if they work their treatment plan properly. I know quite a few addicts who are on a relatively low dose (30 mg) they do not 'nod' or feel high. Some of these individuals you would never, ever guess they were on methadone. They are upstanding citizens who have professional jobs, are dedicated to their families, and volunteer in the community. Yet, they must hide their disease and treatment from others like you who have read numerous books by solely looking at the book cover. I admit there are those who abuse recovery programs and are looking for that legal high. It is sad that the ones like this are the basis for what appears to be almost everyones opinion of those in MMT. Addiction is a disease and it does not discriminate.

If the program was ran by someone who cares about the patient and not the money it might help.But I have seen more than I want to go to the one Indiana.Two are dead ages 40 and 28.and the others either got fat like never seen before and their teeth rotten out.Don't get me wrong it would be great if it would help,but the majority do it to mix with other stuff.I have seen people leave their kids alone in the early mornings to get inline.Then lets think of the thefts and all other criminal.And lets take the people who go there trying to get help the hooked.It is sad that these doctors are aloud to do this.ADDICTION is a demon and it does not care who it hits but there are other ways to get help.

This problem is no joke and is costing us millions of dollars per year, dose that sound funny to you? So what do we do? You certainly have an opinion, but how about a solution, you know the thing that will change things for the better, that thing. I am not defending anything or anyone, but acknowledging the problem and one possible solution, thatís all. You need to reread the posts, I think. Youíre focused on our opinions, not the problem. At least try to offer something. Will condemning addicts change anything? No. Will locking them up reduce our costs? No. Will taking a handful of doctor's license change anything? No. So, while I get your resentment, you still have to deal with the problem, but of course that will take thought, logic, and reason, not insults. Seems to me thatís all you are concerned with; which is pretty shallow and does not even scratch the problemís surface. Leave thought up to thinkers and insults up to complainers. We are seeking answers not putdowns. DUH. See, that helped a bunch, didnít it.

This is to "Shut Up! You are so narrow minded you attack the messanger! What a farce! FYI, that means for your information, I work a full time job in my career as a counselor and yes, that means that I see patients/clients on a daily basis. Therefor, I do know a little bit about MMT and the advantages that can be obtained through MMT. As for your mother, is she still in pain? What is worse, seeing someone wilt away due ot pain issues or have them dependent upon a substance that takes the pain away? Having worked with addicts and alcoholics for the last 15 years, I also have seen my share of deaths from substance use -- alcohol just as much as other drugs -- yes, alcohol is a drug. The only individuals who overdose on MMT is the ones who are abusing it to begin with -- MMT is not to assist with the high, it is for risk reduction and another method of finally getting clean. I do not want to be one of those people who judge others because they are sick and yes, addicts and alcoholics are sick with a disease.

if you think that methadone is a form of meth then i dont think that you need to be on here talking about any o fthe drug problems that people have because for one methadone and methamphetamine are 2 totally different things. you ar ethe dumbass. addiction is a disease and i hope and pray that you or anyone you know never have to go thru it because it really is a hard thing to try to get thru. but your ignorance has really pissed me off not that you dont know about it but for you to get on here and put your two sence in on ti when you dont know about it so get educated about it and then talk some REAL shyt on it....

"uneedtoshutup" I at least know how to spell!!!! You are the stupid one-for one thing its cents not sense!!! HAHAHA I feel soooooo bad that I pissed you off-NOT!!!!!! I have no desire to get educated about drugs!!! You sound like you really know your stuff when it comes to drugs though-let me guess, you are an addict or a "recovering addict" like so many who can't wait for the doors to open at the meth clinic!!!! Remember to secure your place in line with the other druggies by pitching a tent and camping out!!!! We wouldn't want you to start feeling any pain of withdrawal!!!! I hear opening day is gonna be nuts!!!!! People really get touchy when their "supply" runs low!!!!! You sound like you are getting a little nervous that this little venture will fail and there will be no clinic for you to go to!!! Wouldn't it be horrible to live a sober life and have to "feel" things and deal with things like normal (not addicts) people????? I have an idea, why don't you go to AA or a drug rehab and get yourself an education???

Thank you both for making my point for me. Now you are focused on each other, not the problem. Why would you assume, Mr. Counselor that we too are not aware and have way more than 15 years of experience? Mine is almost thirty, as if that makes any difference when giving my opinion. Either you agree or disagree based on your experience, but that is your perception not your resume. I donít even know how to address shut up. By the logon, it is clear that confrontation is the goal, not any solution to addicts, clinics, or costs to the rest of us. But, you guys are certainly entitled to your opinions; as off subject as they are.

I hope you don't have children or plan on having children if you don't have any intentions on educating yourself on drugs and the effects and signs of usage. Because that would just make you another part of the drug problem. If you don't educate them, they will learn from someone else. Probably a dealer.

What would you prefer, a doctor who gives people medicine,or having the person going out and stealing it from say, your neighbor, your grandma, daughter, or someone else innocent. He is the only person who has tried to help the addict. Not everyone who goes there are addicts anyways.

Shut Up...I am not judging any one who is on or does methadone, but my very best friend of 33 years got hooked on HERROIN, I could not believe this soccer mom, loving wife hard worker etc...whomever said addiction does not discriminate is speaking the truth...I was floored. After about 2 years, she decided she really was ready to get clean and decided against my advice to go to a methadone clinic, and she has been on methadone for over 3 years now. My best friend is not the same person anymore. She is bitter and angry all the time and MISERABLE ! When I call her, I have to talk to her husband or daughter because half the time she wont even speak to me and when she does I just sit and cry for hours when we hang up over the way this drug had ruined her life...so I just wanna say I feel ya on your mother...Its HORRIBLE the way it changes them !

Its not the doctors fault that your mom is an addict. So many people justify there addiction by claiming its a prescribed medication that is legal. The doctor isn't forcing your mother to over medicate herself. Instead of taking your frustration out on others via topix, educate yourself on the topic and get her some help.

Listen here you idiot in Union, Ky. I have sat here and listened to your posts. You might be the dumbest son of a bitch I have ever ran into. And if I ever saw you in person I would personally shut your mouth up for you. For one if you are not an ADDICT, you have NO CLUE what we go thru. You think I liked having the gene's I got, hell NO. Addiction is a disease and a very serious disease. I go to the Methadone Clinic NOT to get high but to help get my life back in order because I suffer from a disease of ADDICTION. Society just thinks we are a piece of shit. I Carry two degree's and make over $100,000 per year and I am not a dumbass because I understand about this disease. If you don't have anything good to say, keep your mouth shut. I bet over 98% of people that are incerated are their because of a drug addiction. So let's focus on the solution and NOT the problem. Methadone clinics work if they are taking seriously and you work the program properly. I just wish you had this disease of addiction, then we could talk sense. But your comments are way out of line. My life today is MANAGEABLE and I have gotten my life back. You call your mother pathetic, that right there tells me your pathetic. Do something positive about life and quit your complaining. Your such a negative person. YOu constantly are stuck on the problem and not the SOLUTION. Heroin and pills are a big problem today, and we need to find a solution and not focus on the problem which is all you do. You know nothing about addiction, and you best keep your mouth shut. People that abuse methadone, that is their fault. I don't abuse it and work the program properly and it has saved my life!!!!

Sounds like since you have your life "Manageable" now, you need to look into anger management classes. You are one anger mother...or is that part of being an addict?? Oh, a managed one.

I myself take Methadone and its no cake walk. Im a old man in pain and have been since 19 years old hurt in a pipeline wreck. It has changed my life for the better I wish I was off but could not deal with the pain.I am waiting for my medication in the mail and out for a day dont feel great but am alive. I sometimes want to say the hell with it and start using smack but Methadone is cheap and I take what the doctor writes. If you are in pain its a good drug if your are a junky well you will not like it but it will let you live a somewhat normal life. People who think all people on pain meds are bad can just go to hades . The people who cry about the pills should have there legs broke then given advill.

I'm not sure how many of you are in your 40's or 50's, but history repeats itself. Back in the 80's there were 2 doctors in Latonia Dr. Crabbs and Dr. Smith. Same story unfolded these Dr's got people addicted and then had them running drugs for them. There was a huge indictment. Methodone is highly addictive and will never be used correctly niether will Suboxone. If you want something bad enough and one is truely done, they quit!! Addicition is NOt a diease its a methaphor the goverment uses in its plot to scam again. Dr Shearer is known for his patients who drive miles some even 700 miles just to get what they want. He opened his lab as another pipe dream. Liver failure through the roof, then he gets Mittal a what??? Kidney and Liver Dr. its all a scam. He knows excatly what he is doing getting NKY hooked and now what wants to help with a clinic. No thats so he doesnt have to deal with every junkie's dirty urine and since he cant write them a script cause thats un-ethical he will refer you to his clinic WOW and he didnt loose a client.$$$ still in hand
