How is your clinic?

I have been on MMT for 2 years now I have a week take homes so I only go once a week, but the clinic is a nightmare to me. I have been talked to better by a pissed off dope dealer. But....I have to deal with it as Methadone has saved my life I am 48 years old and it is the only thing in 30 years that has given me hope that I can stay away from the dopeman. That is is I can jump thru all the clinics hoops etc... I get afraid at times because I think pranoid things like what if....they decide to detox me because I run high QTC's on my EKG's. etc....I see the way the nurses dictate and intimidate people at the dosing window. We have a tag team set that when they gang up on ya it is terrible. I relapsed one time in the two years and when they ask me I denied it and flunked the test and they have been rude to me since. Sorry I freaked etc...My clinic is really counter therapuetic so I feel for the individual that needs more than just his daily dose.  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #12)

Tennessee Methadone Clinics.

I have been on methadone now for two years and personally I would be in a heap of crap if I did not finally give it a chance. I am 48 years old and with a almost 30 year history of opiate abuse. I have stayed clean a year or two here and there but I always return to opiayes because I have killed my ability for my natural endorphines to work on their own. If you are young and never tried anything else I would say try something else first. But, if you have tried and failed several attempts do not do like I have and wait til your 48 to find a chance for something to work. I let everyones else's opinion of methadone keep me ffrom trying it for about 20 years I guess. Clinics suck and you kind of feel like you are under their thumb but if you are serious then you just deal with it cause to me it's more reliable than the dopeman. My drug of choice is Opana's (Oxymorophone)but if it's a pain pill I will do anything but now I have no craving for them. I could have a handful of Opana's in my hand and although I could not flush them I could resist taking them. I am not sure where you would attend a clinic I think you lived in TN. I go to a Asheville, NC clinic. Good luck and if I can answer any questions let me know I have done loads of research and I have access to a lot of links and brochures on the internet to educate you further if you like. this link can help you find the closest clinic to where you live. http://www.findtre atment.samhsa.gov/  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #44)
