I am a new moderator joining the Medical Assisted Treatment group.

Though still a rookie at what I'm trying to get across; I will try to
explain a briefing on my background.
I was new to MMT and for two and a half years I attended such.

Wisconsin formerly at that time had patient choice of either
' wafer disc ' or liquid at the clinic I was accepted by.

Thus began (seemingly long ago and far away) a tilt-a-whirl
experience of off again, on again MMT therapy not by own choice.

Each time I had to leave the clinic for hospitalizations, or an
elective attempt to try Suboxone (or an unforeseen circumstance);
I found myself having to literally battle by verbal altercation,
paperwork, and a tangle of bureaucratic tape to be re-admitted
back into MMT at the clinic I was a patient at.

Rather than make this a lengthy read, I leave you with a
miniscule overview of what my sigh in the valley of tears with
methadone dispensation involved. (more like a Primal Scream).

Yes, I had attempted to work with the clinic's Advocate. Yes
I tried detox. Yes, I exhausted all avenues of working back to
a medicinal structure that would sustain me. I'm still at it.

For you of those who suffer from similar travesties; please do
keep in mind that this information is to bolster your courage.
Don't cringe in the shadow of authority where illicit clinics or
individual 'authority' staff members reduce you to feeling as
if you are a mere commodity.
You have done not a thing wrong and have a pitch-perfect
right to your medicine.
