Lol you messed up somewhere along the way. Where I come from, if an addict gets on methadone they can see/raise their children. You people go on about losing your teeth. How many teeth would you have had knocked out from stealing or other questionable actions while in active addiction. If you get on a good stable dose, you can go to the same job and raise your kids as easy as the next person. But alot of people want to get in a high dose and have no motivation to better their life! This site makes me sick. And another thing, why come off it cold turkey and torture yourself when you can wean? Seems to me by the way you all are complaining you should have got off the dope first. Sit down and do the pros and cons. Sit down and remember the day you got on it, the relief I felt can't be described with nothing but gratitude. Nobody told me methadone was a cute, it's a step in the right direction. What you choose to do when you get on it is your choice but come on people. Be accountable for your actions and mess off with the finger pointing! Peace!
