Well really nothing. I know a clinic right now as we speak that is in the middle of a lawsuit seeking 6 million for the death of a young lady who was dosed with nothing but cocaine in her stystem. She died a couple of days after first entering MMT. This person should have NEVER been given methadone for a cocaine habit. Next, they will be dosing alcoholic. Ban Methadone
