It's true that the Methadone Clinic is a for-profit business; however, I find it amazing that people can buy hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of pills or heroin every month and can't "afford" treatment. There is treatment available that is free of charge for people who cannot pay- just not methadone or suboxone.

Thank you!
I go to the clinic & I'm sick and tired of hearing the whiners & crybabies cuz their needs aren't being catered to. They are HUNDREDS, maybe thousands, of patients there because of the pill epidemic, and only a few counselors. But those addicts don't care. They want it their way or no way. B:tch & moan.
And do you know how few actually WORK?? Most have their mommies or daddies pay for their treatment. Get a job! I've got two..you guys can't get one?

I used to see it everyday. People moaning that they can't afford treatment. It's costing "everything I have to go there" they say.

They brag while standing in line that, "I used to do $200 a day worth of heroin OR pills" blah blah, etc etc. but by god they can't come up with $14.50 per day to be off the illegal stuff and on a medically supervised withdrawal program.

It works for sure, I'm proof of it. It allows a person to maintain a life and able to work while being medically tapered down to taking nothing. At least it did for me.

The people moaning about it are the ones that don't want help or to get clean. They moan about it until they talk themselves into going back to drugging and spending that $200 per day again then everythings just A-OK. LoL. Yea right.

Ummm.. don't want to point out the obvious, but if you're taking methodone (even when prescriped for "treatment") you're still "doing drugs".

One vice for another... you're still an addict. Just now you get your pills "legally". And supposedly regulated. Poor little addicts....:-/

How about these damn junkies do it the correct way! Cold Turkey! I don't give a shit who you are the misery only lasts so long methadone and suboxene are only crutches... you think that km being a bitch but I'm being honest... A couple years ago I was on the shot bad... but I looked at myself in the mirror so I quit... cold turkey I was sick and in misery for a week felt better the next week by the 3rd week was back to myself... it took a while to get over not needing it anymore but people who sit there and say Oh I need to go get suboxene I need methadone man get a grip and man up... stop being pussies BC eventually you'll have to detox off that shit and it'll b just as miserable... STOP DELAYING THE INEVITABLE!!!!

That's what "for-profit" businesses are. It's not a charity clinic.

Bottom line is you have to want to be clean and get help. Not everybody at the Clinic is there for themselves. They are there for family members or trying to hold on to relationships, some are trying to do it for their kids. Honest truth is once you become addicted nothing else matters, nothing but the next hit. Not easy to understand unless you've been there or Love someone who has been. This is Why you have to be sick and tired of it all and want it for your own self. It almost never lasts unless it's for you.

The clinic is for making money, bottom line is it is a business. If a person is desperate to get clean it may be a start but not Long term. Something to think about, you get in get started on methadone, dose keeps going up til 60 mg. Finally feeling better, then striving for take homes, it takes two years to get a month of take homes. Someone who's taking home a month is now dependent on Methadone. Clinic is making money hand over fist and you are stuck in that line once a month. If you are one of these people and you are Okay with it That's fine, but if you Could have done it differently, would you?

All I'm as saying is if you can get stable, wise choice is to start dosing down, slowly but surely. Be off methadone and out of the clinic. Life is too short to be wasting away in a line that never seems to end.

Best wishes to all addicts that life gets better with sobriety :)

Don't they know that society does not care about a bunch of junkies. I hope that place blows up..they need to form another single-file line beside the dope line that shoots them all up with poison and just tell them its oxy or heroin lol..

I think I may have not communicated correctly what was in my head when responding to the previous post.,

My failed attempt at dry sarcasm.

I know a great deal more about the cLiNiC than the average bystander.
I understand Mr. Awesome that the methodone clinc is a for profit business.

It is not, however, the soultion to the problem. In my opinion, which is merely an opinion. It is only a legalized way for "Coporate Drug Dealers" to do business with ADDICTS.

The Clinic would not exist if there was not a market for it.

It was a bad choice for Cabell County.

Someone invited them to the barn dance.
