As I have always said, I support anyone's decision to try MMT. Only the person knows what kind of life they had before, and whether it is better and more manageable on methadone. That said, a family (loved one) should still be concerned because of how many of the clinics are run; the ones in my area (NE Fla) included. Maybe times are changing because I've been out of the loop for about 2 years, but when I made the decision to quit, the clinic was anything but supportive. I feel there needs to be a major re-vamp in the way things are done. Good letter though.
