    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...

    Counseling Is Just Interrogation

    I used to think counselors were supposed to somewhat actually care about a patients well being, but any more they're mere low level interrogators now not worth giving reasonable answers to. The way i feel anymore, prove to me you're worthy of your possition because I don't "...

    I am a member in a methadone clinic.

    It's an replacement opiate treatment program utilized to help people get away from street drugs. It is a great program, and I wish it was applied more universally throughout the country. One of the biggest problems though, is that many of the patients are not actually...

    I do, it's true. I am

    now 32, but I started my love-affair with opiates when I was in early high-school. For some reason, I thought that the kids dealing drugs and doing drugs were really the coolest kids. It was a small school, and I regret some of the things I 'learned'. Anyway I started using...
