methadone was made to be controlled by the government to help get people off of other drugs, why do they not controll it better it should never be aloud to leave the clinic . They trust people to go homer and take it like they are told. But they dont some go out and sell it and then you loose your kids they die from it. Why do the government who is fighting to stop drugs on street let it get carried out of the clinics. My son was not on there program but brought some from someone who was and he never woke up. Its hard enough to fight the people on streets making drug , but what about this program no one should be aloud to take it home ,they should have to take it where they can be controlled better, and maybe some other mother wont have to go through what my family has gone through. someone should check into the methadone clinics, do they really cure anyone or are they on that stuff for years? I talked to alot of people who have been on it for many years, they said its a fix they know they have for the day until they get there drugs on street. I blame the government for the methadone problem in America , they aren’t taken better care of there drug they make. We wouldn’t be hearing of all the deaths on methadone if they controlled it better.
