    A Reality Show Waiting To Happen

    Don't get me wrong. The clinic and methadone saved my life. If I hadn't started the clinic on July 8th, 2008, a day that I celebrate on the level of my birthday (and I'm very serious about birthdays. love 'em) I would be dead right now. I have no question about that in my...

    So, I have been going to this clinic

    for a few years now. I have not had any relapses, and I'm very much dedicated to the program. I believe if you are, it's genuinely very helpful. Like any business though, there are multiple clients... I have grown to dislike most of the clients, because many of them are very...

    I Am a Recovering Addict.
