Methadone and Testosterone levels
Sun Dec 14, 2014 12:00 pm by NoMoreTears

methadone clinic cuts 2 dozen patients
Fri Jan 29, 2010 11:02 am by lilgirllost
We have talked about this very subject before, how do you pay for your methadone treatment. While it is a sad situation to have a clinic cut patients because they don't have insurance, the majority of us I think pay for our methadone treatment out of our own pockets anyhow. The man in this article amazes me though! He owns his own business and everything but he can't pay for his methadone …

MMT IN JAILS AND PRISONS...
Fri Jun 01, 2012 9:22 am by MrsPenguin2005

Long awaited clinic finds a home in Rutland VT
Fri Jun 29, 2012 10:34 am by D
Last year RuthAnn posted a story about a small town in Vermont and the possibility of a new mmt facility. AS with many other towns a clinic was badly needed in the area.
Everyone agreed, Rutland needed a clinic but no one could agree on where to put it. Some places were too small, some members of the community thought it would be too close to their homes but finally after months of searching the …
