Finished college with a masters in social services. Got my Ksact.My pain is being managed. Found the love of my life! been in a steady relationship for two years with her. Got all my family’s trust and respect back. Graduated out patient program. Lost 30 pounds. Lost no teeth.All this in two years. Methadone is not your problem so stop blaming a drug for you not taking care yourself.
U people r right its not the methadone that's to blame for loosing teeth n the all the other problems they reported. That is simply their own lack of basic hygiene n any motivation to help themselves. Just like you all, methadone saved my life. I'm sure those people where all the type to use the methadone as just another high while still out banging dope everyday. I know for a fact not just from my own experience but from others as well that if u use the methadone like they tell u n stay off if the other drugs then it does work, 100%!!! I can't stand all these people I keep reading about how "methadone" ruined there life. Well, I'll say something they should've known from the beginning. It's not the methadone, its urself!!! It's ur own lack of any type of control or willingness to try n control ur habit. If u would take responsibility for ur own life n mistakes n stop blaming it own everything around u, u might be able to really get ahold of ur addiction n go on n live as u should. I've been an addict for twenty years n finally decided that I'd had enough, so I thought I would try the one thing I never tried n that was methadone. I owe my life to methadone n I promise u if u take the methadone as directed n only the methadone then it will work! PLEASE STOP BLAMING METHADONE FOR UR PROBLEMS!!! UR SCARING ALOT OF PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE CLINIC WHEN IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES!!! N THATS NO DIFFERENT THAN KILLING THEM URSELVES!!! I REALLY DO HOPE N PRAY THAT ONE DAY THE NIGHTMARE WILL BE OVER FOR U BUT IT NEVER WILL UNLESS U CAN TAKE THE BLAME URSELF N STOP TRYING TO SAY METHADONE IS THE REASON U R WHERE U R!!! WE ALL KNOW THAT IS NOT THE CASE N SO DO U!!!
