Hi everyone.

I am a 24 year-old male from Canada and have been on methadone now for almost 2 years (over 1 year at a stable dose). I'm glad to be a part of the community.

Hey @somniferum! Welcome to A Flicker in the Dark! geek 

Glad you made your way to the forum! All the methadone forums go through "waves" where they will be busier at times and slower at times. I try to post on all of them as I'm able. My name is Zac, and I am a methadone patient & patient advocate from Eastern TN. I attend a clinic in NW Georgia. I am also with the National Alliance of Methadone Advocates, Inc. (dba National Alliance for Medication Assisted "NAMA" Recovery).

I know a few other methadone patients from Canada in the Methadone Discussion Group | Facebook and I didn't realize just how different MMT is there vs. the U.S. until the past year or so getting to know them. Another good forum that I try to post on regularly as well as this one is NAMA Recovery's We Speak Methadone (and buprenorphine) Forum.

I hope to see you around! Again, WELCOME! These forums are run by a great group of folks. The founder of MAT of America passed away roughly a year or so ago, so things go through slow times... but keep coming back around! WELCOME!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Zac.

I find it hard to keep up with a forum that sees hundreds of posts per day and you end up missing a lot of information. At least with forums, once something is posted it remains there for people to read. I'll be sure to stop by everyone once in a while and thanks as well for the other links.

You're welcome! I'm glad you found this forum... And I agree that these forums are an important part of resources for MAT patients. Despite the slow times post are permanent... and MANY patients read through the forums without actually posting. I know that has been a big thing patients have told me about We Speak Methadone (and buprenorphine) as well. Also on WSM&B there is a "Members Lounge" that is an entire forum that can't even be seen unless one is registered & logged in. A lot of the activity goes on in there, but the information that is posted in the other forums the public can view has been important to many folks.

Keep up the good work YOU'RE doing on your website, Facebook page, Twitter, etc. I had a chance to visit and "LIKE" your Facebook page last night via the link at the bottom of your posts. I'm so thankful for anyone who is willing to get involved and spread the TRUTH!

All the best,
Zac

Cool deal. :-) Was was your username? And I'll text Rokki Baker (NAMA Recovery national President; Also moderates the forums) and tell her to look for it so she knows to approve you. Through the week she approves every morning, but sometimes it's hit or miss on the weekends. :-)

Not 100% sure but I think it's Somniferum. Thanks a lot, Zac.
