i'm almost done with the clinic, hooray!!!!

posted on the wall of my methadone clinic:

"Beginning Jan 1 2009, no change will be given. Exact change ONLY for dosing."

"Beginning Jan 1 2009, there will be a $50 registration fee. Including the $12 for your dose, you will need to pay $62 for registration."

"Missing two or more days of treatment will result in a discharge from the program, and to return you must pay a $50 re-registration fee ($62 total)."

"Beginning March 1 2009, the price per dose will go up to $13. Remember to have exact change!"

"If phasing [take-home doses] is rejected, staff is NOT required to explain the reason why!!"

rant:

What the fuck is up with that? Especially the no-change thing, it's complete bullshit! The person before me pays his $12 all in singles, and I have a twenty because you can't get 12 bucks at the ATM, and you still haven't put the singles in the drawer, and then you're gonna tell me you CAN'T give me change? I see the fucking change in your fucking hand! How long does it take to count down from twenty?

Every day, all over the planet, things get sold to paying customers: mattresses, light bulbs, stereo systems, car parts, houses, candy bars, baby bibs, fiberglass insulation, fertilizer, everything imaginable! And do they feel the need to treat their customers like shit, jack prices, and refuse to GIVE CHANGE for CASH PURCHASES? Of course not! Because they would get turned into the BBB and no one would buy from them if they did those things. But the folks who go to the clinic, we need our methadone. Just because it's dope, they get to disrespect their customers. Yeah, they don't like to call us customers, I know. We are 'clients' or 'patients' or whateverthefuck. But we pay cash for dope (oh wait, not dope, it's medication) daily, making us customers!

On the street, drug dealers are famous for treating their customers like shit. Why? Because it's dope! "Yeah, I'll be there in five minutes." Five minutes my ass, if these dope dealers were selling anything besides dope they'd be out of a job so fast it would make their heads spin. I guess you hafta expect this sort of shit from street niggers, but they do the same gay shit at the clinic. "We can't give you change for a twenty even though we have it right here, and the price is going up even though each dose costs us about 20c, and if you can't afford your dose or the gas to get here for a couple days we are gonna go ahead and charge you MORE for no good reason, and oh by the way you don't get take homes even though you followed ALL the rules and met all the requirements and we don't hafta tell you shit about why! What are you gonna do, leave? Hahaha!" Stupid fucking legal dope dealers with their stupid gay shit.

If it's like my clinic the reason is that they separate the money from each person. (I guess to prove that you paid to someone else.) So my money is paper clipped to my file, and the guy in front of me has his money clipped to his file. They wouldn't be able to make change because it would throw off that system. If I don't have exact change they just give me credit for the next month. Anyway, just an FYI.

To your comment on my blog Michelle. I've decided not to come down slowley because I see the many (and I mean hundreds) of people that had intendid on doing just that but are still in the clinic after 5,10,15 and sometimeseven 20yrs. And many of these people have warned me "get out while you can". But that is not my onley reason. I do know that if I decided to detox down from 105mgs that I'm on now it would take at the least 1yr, but probly longer than that. And I cannot go back home to my son if I have to go to a clinic every day because its to far away from where I will be living. So I have several reasons. I am by no means dogging Methadone because it saved my life but I am saying I don't care to have to go to a clinic every day worrying if I'll get there on time b4 they close and all the other worries that come with Methadone. I might look into takeing Suboxone as a maitenince drug similair to taking Meth but without the worry of going to the clinic because I would have a script. Anyways I have a while to think about it because I'm not going to leave until at least april or may.--Miss Heroin a.k.a Melissa

It won't take a year to come off 105mg, I am coming down from 100mg and it's way easier than I thought it would be- and it sure the hell won't take no damn year, prolly not even 6 months! That's just me though...

Private healthcare: moneygrabbing bastards. Here it's state so it's free but we all still moan about everything

Hey sweets, gonna call you today and see whats up with you and the munchkin. Ugh Methadone Nazis, those people are way more heavy handed than any connect I ever dealt with. They are on a HUGE power trip and like to swing their balls around just because they can. Dealer 'tude from a methadone clinic, doesn't get any better than that does it?
