Y is everyone sooo worried about everyone else! I f u are pointing the finger,or trying to call some elses "promblems" out, then more than likely u have a whole lot to worry about yourself...like maybe being addicted to something yourself an not wanting help,whatever "it" is focus on "yourself" not "everyone" else!

I don't disagree with Methadone "TREATMENT". I just can tell you that Clinch Valley Treatment Center aka The Methadone Clinic located just below Claypool Hill, does not treat addiction - it contributes to addiction.
The limit that a patient can increase is 120mg -- however some do get to go higher with the doctor's permission -- not alot but some do .. but 120mg of Methadone is TOOOOO much.
They get take homes quickly and there is not limit to what a daily dose can be in a take home.
They also allow patients to be on other medications like Xanax and Klonopin and take Methadone. This is a deadly cocktail -- Those patients do have to a prescription for the Xanax and or Klonopin but the prescribing physicain doesn't necessarily know about the Methadone treatment.
The DEA should really make a surprise visit to this facility -- they would be SHOCKED --
The DEA visits all methadone clinics regularly, so do other regulatory agencies like state methadone authorities. And if you do actual reseach on methadone, reliable research, you would see that 120 mgs is not always an adequate dose of methadone, some people need much more. YES, benzos (Xanax, Klonopin) are dangerous to mix with methadone when not taken as prescribed, but if taken like they should be then there are no issues. I'm not sure about the specific clinic you're talking about, but the ones who care about their patients allow them to take the medications they need while monitoring how they are taking it. For example, they have the paitent bring in the medication to be counted to ensure they are taking it as prescribed. Getting take homes is not easy and not quick, of course there may be some who "beat the system." But regulations say that a patient has to be in treatment for 9 months clean before getting one weeks worth of take homes. Do the reseach before you make comments.

Amen! I have seen methadone help a lot of people, the ones who it really helps you would never even know they are on it. They have families, jobs, and good lives.

This is not true. At Clinch Valley Treatment Center in Cedar Bluff, a patient is eligible for take homes after 30 days clean. They are also eligible for travel exemptions at the same time. So a patient can have three take homes a week after just thirty days clean.

If you only take 30mgs then why do you run out? I went for 10 years and the best advice I can give you is to get out now while your on a low dose!! All you will get from that place is a mouth full of rotten teeth, brittle bones, a shitty immune system, and did I mention an empty bank account??? Get out kid.
