Here you go they call it “substitution therapy”You said it right here.
You really gonna tell me that when you said "the only real treatment is abstinence.. Period", that a reasonable person wouldn't interpret that to mean "abstinence is the only way"?
You're giving your opinion, I am too the difference is I'm actually saying it's my opinion.
I was a heroin addict a long time too, hell I probably still am. You can give your opinion, but I'm gonna give mine too.
If you just wanna emphasize that methadone is very hard to get off and that you should think very carefully about your long term goals and what you think you're ready for in deciding to get on it, I'd be all on board.
But that's not what you said, you said methadone isn't a real treatment and that abstinence is the only real treatment.
Annnd I don't agree and am gonna say as much cause I think what you're arguing puts people at risk. At least in the way you said it.
Methadone is often viewed as the most effective option for those who are severely addicted to opiates such as heroin.
You took what I said way too personal , if that’s where your at in your life and it has improved over what it was then great but you sound like if you new what you were getting into regarding maintenance you may have sought out other options ..
I hope things continue to go your way
