A state trooper told me that the meth clinic was a place that catered to the hopeless cases. Drug heads who seemed incurable. The government uses these clinics in an attempt to not cure the addict, but to control their drug use in the hopes that they won't be committing crimes in order to buy from the pushers.

On the other hand if one wants to continue to do drugs they can only stop themselves!

Your a drug head who wants to blame someone for what you have done to yourself, and family. Your a loser for getting hooked. If a Doctor told you to go jump off a cliff would you no. Go cry somone else a river.

I am a patient at the Mathadone clinic in S.C. and I wish that I had known more about the Drug before I began taking it! But, I do not agree with the fact that EVERYONE goes there to get high and is all over the road like that. I guess that each Clinic has different rules, which I dont agree with, but I am just another person posting my OPINION like everyone else is doing on here. Your OPINION is not any more valuable than mine is, nor is the next person's. If you are going to post on this topic then you need to study the topic at hand and get the facts before you act like you know what you are talking about. Methadone is not given to get patients high. Whether a patient decieves you to believe that the dose that they are on is not enough so that they can get high is something that could be controlled better, but then again it seems as if it would be much harder than giving help to those that actually want help for themselves and focusing more on the ones that actually are there to get help and stop using all together. Methadone is given for patients so they dont have to experience the painful withdraw symtoms of opiates. If taken at the needed dosage, the drug weill not get you high only help you to not want the drug that you were addicted to before!

I think Methadone Clinics are just a legalized dope house. I know people who start going to it and they give you a 5 year plan to take you off. Furthermore the one in Hazard needs shut down. Their policy is that methadone patients have a driver with them when they come for medication because they take a dose in the office. I drive past this clinic everyday to go to work and rarely do I see more than one person in a car turning into the clinic or pulling out from it. On top of that I had a co-worker killed by a guy (driving himself) in Letcher County who had come straight from the Hazard methadone clinic. Once I followed a driver who was all over the road on the parkway heading toward Hazard. It was so bad that I called 911 to report it because I thought he was drunk. Guess what, He pulled straight into the methadone clinic. Shut it down because there are more effective and safer ways to get someone off drugs.

No I haven't been on drugs. However, I know enough to know that there is safer options such as suboxin that doesn't have unsafe drivers on the road killing innocent young people who was only trying to go to work!!!

I work in healthcare and I know the purpose of Methadone Clinics. I agree that not all people are going to abuse the program. I hope that it would truely everyone get off drugs. But there are safer options.

im just wondering where the stopping point is when people stay in there 4 like 4 or 5 yrs then they r so totally hooked on it and their bodies have to have it and it just hurts them worse when they come down off of it thats all im saying.
stop it

What a joke, they get hooked and now methodone is sold on the streets. They stay on that drug for years. Get a real drug center in there to help them get off all drugs. sos in hamilton ohio is the perfect example, check out how they work. You earn your way out. Addicts need court ordered to go to places like this where real doctors and medical staff are on call 24/7. In there not enough funds to start one as this? If the answer is no that bull. Help them, don't contribute to them. It works. That or jail. Earn your passes to get out on weekends after you prove your doing good, allow no visitors until your testing drug free, then keep on testing. Mongiardo wanted this years ago, but did he get the votes. NO. WHY.

I think overeaters should have court ordered diets also. They are hurting their selfs way to much to let em keep doin it. If they cant stop eating to much put em in jail. Also they should have there kids taken so they do not develop the same dangerous lifestyle as their parents

it probably would help ppl if they had a stopping point like maybe 6 months to a year and counseling to go along with it.

That is the truth if I have ever heard it. It all depends on if the person wants to get off of drugs.

I realize through some of the neg-comments ive read that through stupidity and ignorance, youlle say almost anything. have you stupid people ever had a friend or family member on drugs? if you havent you dont know jack about it so shut your ignorante holes up and start taking notes, or do you need someone to help you do this as well? ive been on methadone for 2 years now and all i have to say is that without it i would be dead now. i never abused a drug before or even took a pain pill in my life before i got diagnosed with my desiese. i would love to meet you ignorant people face to face. i tell you where you could stick you stupid notions. go back in the boonies and continue your pretend litle life because society has no place for you here with the rest of the educated folk.......... sit on that while your in your outhouses! who knows maybe youlle pass some of that stupidity while your in there,lol...

there are clinics that do help the one i know gives you 2 years to get stabal then they start bringing you off. its easy to judge if youve never been addicted.some ppl brain does not produce the chemichal that deals with pain that is why their so easy addicted to things like pain killers. just a lil educ.for the hard critics

Methadone has been shown to be helpful in helping heroine addicts get clean. It's a scientific fact. Look it up. Heroine is an opium derivative that is much stronger and addictive than hydrocodone and oxycodone.
