HAS ANYONE EVER RESEARCHED THIS?

Yes, I have and I have an appointment this Thrusday for the intake. It is at 3 mile curve, you have to go for an intake first, Teresa Ferguson is managing it, then you have to meet with her 2 more times to make sure that is what you want to do, and you have to be clean for at least 3 days but they prefer 5. I don't know if you have heard of the "implant" or "pellet" that some people were going to Richmond to get but I went and got it, and it is exactly the same only it is in shot form, and they give you vitamin B12 so you will feel good and have energy. If you can't afford it, if you have no income then they will take care of it and you won't have to pay but like $5.00 I think it was. You really can't go wrong with it, it is very much worth it, the only difference is, it only lasts a month but they get you another appointment before it runs out so that you won't be tempted to use. Give Teresa a call. IF you need anymore info get on here and ask and I will tell you. The active agent in it is Naltroxelone (I probably spelled that wrong).

I thought it was for alcoholism.?

If you want to quit something, you shouldn't need to go through all of that stuff. Find something positive to take it's place.

It isn't for alcoholism it is to block opiates, it is really just a tool to make it to where if you get a craving to get a pill you can't because you won't feel the high from it if you do, and if you take that shot and you know that is what it is going to do then you won't think about getting high because it won't happen, it will help you out until you get into 12 step recovery and get some time under your belt, the shot is meant to use for about a year, which will give you enough time to work your program some

I think it's used for alcoholism too...at least that's what a lady I know that works at 3 mile told me. What's funny is there is a huge list of medications you cannot be on or it will react badly and make you very sick...there was a guy who was on Viagra and didn't tell the lady and it made him pretty sick...but I guess when you're addicted to pills, you don't care much about your body anyway.

Yes I thank you also! Im going to try and get this person I know to seek help! Drugs are getting harder to get and by far the dealers are uping their price on pills! This person works hard and makes good money but is broke by the first week of payday! I know it must be awful to have to live in this shape and if this person really wants help im giving them this number you gave and maybe by all hope they will try to get their life back on track!

From what I hear, this shot is non addictive, very few side effects if any.
The biggest side effect that I have heard is a small knot in the injection site, but according to people, you just have to rub the injection site for a few seconds.
Again, Teresa is the person you need to contact and she will explain everything to you.

The shot is basically the same thing as the implant only in a shot. Naltrexone is NON ADDICTIVE, it has NO drugs in it what so ever. It is an opiate blocker. It kicks your cravings. It was a miracle for me, it saved my life.

Ask for Teresa, you have to go for an intake first and then you have to meet with Teresa 2 times after that to make sure you don't change your mind, they do a pee test on you after the doctor says you are eligable for the shot and then if you test clean then you can get it. YOu can have NO opiates or Narcotics in your system at all. However it doesn not block xanax or any kind of benzos or cocaine either. I got that pellet too and it was too much money and too far to drive so this shot is going to be the best thing that ever happened to people who want to quit but can't do it by themselves. Plus, if you can't afford it they will wave the fee and you only have to pay $5.00. Hope it helps everyone!

Some people have very high opinions of Teresa and some think that she acts like she is better than some. If you know Teresa, then you can rest assured that she is a very caring person and will do anything for anyone.
But, I will tell you this about her, don't try to jerk her chain or try something stupid, she will tell you exactly what she thinks. She is how do you say it, brutally honest.

Honey for one thing Methadone is still a drug, all you did is trade one for another. Methadone is hell on your body. This shot is basically the same thing as the Pellet, which is Naltrexone. It works, it saved my life. Naltrexone is a NON narcotic opiate blocker. Treatment with the shot or pellet they want you to stay on for a year. You do have to be off of drugs, or anything that is an opiate for a few days before getting the shot or pellet. This is the way to go, it kicks your craving and gives your body and mind time to adjust to not doing drugs. After the year of treatment is up and you go back to drugs then that's your stupidity, your not sick your body won't crave them. Along with the shot or pellet you need to get into a 12 step program,NA meetings can really help. You have to do your part, you have to learn to live without drugs and don't expect anything to be a miracle and you don't have to try yourself. The best thing to do after your off drugs is to examine the reason why you started in the first place. Meeting will really help. I wish you luck and hope you choose to get clean. Methadone is a drug and will kill you just as fast if not faster than anything you can get off the street. Your life will be cut short if you don't get off that crap.

I went for an intake or evaluation on Wednesday after waiting almost 2 weeks, and met with Teresa or some of us know her as Fergie. She will talk the same to everyone whether you have known her for 1 hour or 20 years, and yes as someone said before, don't jerk her around or don't try to. she is as the other post said, BRUTALLY HONEST AND SHE WILL LET YOU KNOW UP FRONT.
Teresa will talk to you forever about the "shot". She is very knowledgeable about this. She asks alot of questions concerning your drug history, your family history and if you have had any psychological problems like depression and nervousness, etc. She doesn't get surprised when you tell her that you use up to 1000mg of oxy a day. She just says......Please explain how and when you started abusing alcohol and drugs. She doesn't judge like most people. She asked me, to tell her about my childhood, was there any problems while you where growing up, like any abuse whether it be mental, physical or sexual.....she does not want to know the names, just wants a yes or no answer.
She doesn't judge whether you have taken the pills by mouth, or snorted them up your nose or if you have used a needle. If you have used a needle, she will probably ask to see the track marks, and how long you have used the needle. She understands that the needle is just as addictive as the dope itself.
She asks if you have been tested for HEP-C and HIV/AIDS and if you have not, she suggests that you get tested.
Some of the questions she asks are a little weird like the memory test or something, but she has to asks those questions anyway.
Anyway, if someone has a problem with alcohol or drugs, please call her.

I have called her for this person ive been talking about he has told me he needs some kind of help he has admitted he is in trouble! He has an appointment with her next week! I am so proud of him and I hope she agrees with me he needs help! he has been on pills for a long time and he has come to a place in life where is is tired of being who he is when he cant get them and tired of who he becomes when he does! Im so glad for Kristen and Stephanie and whoever else is on here speaking out! I love you all for it! You may not be Christian or you may be either way God knows you and is smileing upon you because you are reaching out and saving lives!
