Why don't we just have the methadone clinic at Berkshire Medical Center as part of the outpatient services? Right now, patients in Berkshire County taking methadone have to travel to Holyoke, Springfield, or Greenfield for their methadone doses......absolutely crazy. I think that BMC, Fairview, and North Adams Regional could provide these services..
I know that this is not the same issue....BUT.......If you get pregnant in this county, you can get an outpatient abortion locally (without having to travel to Springfield, Hartford, or Albany).....Why can't patients who are addicted to optiate, get ongoing treatment for their problems?

Because this is not about curing drug addicts and making them fit for society. This is about money. Money going in the right direction. These people could care less about their clientele but they care a lot about the money they get from it. all drug enforcement is also about money going in the right direction. do you really think police chiefs and sheriffs give two shits if Bobbie Sue smokes marijuana? NO they don't. But their departments get a lot of money for giving the impression that they are making a dent in the traffic and that is pretty much the driving force behind the whole charade.

How many health care providers work to save their patients from their foolish or ill-advised decisions, I would say that almost of all them are engaged in "saving people from themselves". The same may apply for parents, teachers, counselors, clergy, social workers,probation officers, judges, and perhaps a few politicians and law enforcement agents....
