Yes a Methadone Clinic is a good thinkg. My husband has been going for about 6 months now and it is the best thing to happen to him and our marriage. I just wish there was one here in Fredericksburg, VA. We drive over 60miles each way every day to get to his !!

Dawn, dont you see the level of his addiction? 120 miles a day is rediculous,I reccomend going to a clinic with a sliding fee scale related to income At all costs dont go to a psycologist,once hooked on benzos your a goner if you have an addictive nature.Theres no escaping withdrawal but he needs to grow some balls and take what he did to himself like a man and get off it all.Methadone is highly addictive. I speak from experience.Your life is overcome by his need for a fix. I wish him well.

A methadone clinic is not a good thing for your area. It degrades property values becaue there is always a lot of drug addicted people congregating in one area. Most people that use methadone still continue to use the other drugs that they are addicted to and then they become addicted to methadone. Some people take the methadone and use part of it and the other part they make a retail business out of it by selling their methadone on the street. Not a good thing.

I asked my Dr. today about methadone wow what a dangerous drug. It is Gov. Control and after the "Anna nicole Smith" O.D. most DR. where giving it out. they got audit and was forced to taper cancer pt, chronic pain pt. off how sad if they did not abuse it why? others being judged by a troubled person? Good luck and I heard the term kicking the habit comes from the legs running from withdrawl. sorry

I think a clinic here would help a whole lot of people. I know alot of people that drive to Richmond every single day and I know a whole lot more people that need to go. It's a serious matter and it affects those who love them. We who love them have seen the suffering when they have nothing and it's not a pretty thing to witness. It would also hurt all the pill dealers that take advantage of thier pain and charge outrageous prices for pills. Yes we need a clinic in Fredericksburg. I also think these people do need to get clean, but they won't till they're ready. It's sad but true!

I believe other options should be checked into before using methadone. Seems to me a person is exchanging one dependancy for another.

A methadone clinic in the area has the potential to be a great thing, given the increasing number of narcotic cases and activity in the area. It gives addicts a chance to get their lives together and get on the straight and narrow.

the addicts dont want help im sure the only help they need is a push down the river to get them out of town hell im feeding their children and their dr bills cause i know they on food stamps and get a medical card and half the kids dont even get the food from the food stamps cause their druggie parents are to busy selling them to get there next fix

methadone is highly addictive and difficult to stop, but for many it is the last resort. heroin and prescription drug addiction will lead to jail or death.
there is a treatment center open in fredericksburg that will prescribe methadone. they require group therapy and will motivate you to try and withdraw from the drug.
methadone is a lousy option but for many it is the only option. if you can afford other treatment-try that first. If nothing else works,methadone beats
death from addiction. Recovery is possible-don't give up. Find a good counselor and do the work
