    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...
