If doctors would understand peoples pain and not think that everyone that needs them is an addict then people wouldn't need to go to "pill mills" !!
I have been to 6 neuro surgeons and need to be on meds for life but because of all the bad vibes towards pain clinics I cant find a doctor after mine moved to kentucky!!!

It's just really funny how all of a sudden everyone has figured out exactly what the problem is with drugs in Portsmouth. So they shut down a few pill mills? So what? There are plenty of quack doctors who will write them for you if you have insurance or money. The zombies that go to the pill mills will just have to switch to heroin. The sale of illegal street drugs is so prevalent in Portsmouth it's sickening. They make one or two good busts a year of street-level dealers and claim they're making progress.

The problem is much larger than the local leadership wants to admit. Even the shameful bits of this or that we see in papers other than the Portsmouth times are just the tip of the iceberg. Somebody is making good money off of all the drugs, prostitution, substandard housing, crime, and stolen property.

Rezgirl your right. Did any see all the traffic at subxone clinic s. There just as bad only it costs more there are more of them doc s than any pill mill docs ever. Its far from over. No pill mill doc says now go home do ten of these and die or go sell half these. People. That's lost loved ones needs too under stand that I know from. Experience. I lost my dad too drugs before there were any mills around here. City official s put that in your pice pipe and smoke it or did u get something. Out. Of the evadence room. If a dealer takes a. Case too jury All they. Have too do is ask for eveadenc too be seen there won't b any too have a case. Don't make no deal or snitch case ur still going to prison makes em spend some of the money they stole

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
