I can not explain how happy I am to find this site. I am Cooper a 35 year old woman who has been in a MMT for 1 year and 1 day Very Happy Methadone gave my husband back his wife my children back their mother and me back my life. I will never forget the day I walked into my clinic sick as a dog throwing up every where crying. They took me in and took such good care of me and treated like a real person. From reading the stories on here I understand how lucky I was. I get so mad reading some of this stuff on here. I hate to think about what alot of you have went through. I do understand the judgement others can have on us for being in a MMT program. It is so not fair andI hope to live long enough to see it change. Before I got into a program I remember getting online and reading about others but not one time did I ever read good things about methadone. I live in a small town and have lived in this area my entire life. I was so scared someone would see me at the clinic. I wouldnt even look others in the face. But after I saw the difference it made in my life all that changed. I am now proud to say methadone saved me. I am SOOOOOhappy to see so many people on here from Georgia because I want to meet more people like me!! I am in the process of starting a group at my clinic and I would love support. I have a passion for this and I know Gods plan for my life is to help others like us to not have to suffer in silence ANYMORE. SOOO I want to help but I need help to find out how to get statred.....If anyone reads this PLEASE respond.....we dont have to be alone in this either way You never know how I could help you or you could help me!!!

Welcome! It's great to have you here with us. My name is Dee and I am one of the moderators of the forum. We also have RuthAnn who is our main moderator. I'm sure she will stop by to welcome you as well once she sees that you have joined us and posted.

It is great to see someone that has such enthusiasm. It's also always great to hear something about one of the good clinics.
We have an area on the forum titled, "Rate Your Methadone Program" The link to that area is:

Please feel free to post about the clinic that you attend. It is always helpful when someone is looking for a clinic in their area and sees something posted.
Take some time to read the posts of the other members and if you see something that interests you please comment.
We are here to offer you any support that you might need and hope that you will continue to post.
It is great to meet you,

"I will let yesterday end so that today can begin"

Never take any online advice over that of a qualified healthcare provider
