Miami offers a number of area methadone clinics providing methadone replacement therapy and approved suboxone doctors who can write prescriptions for suboxone. Suboxone (with buprenorphine) provides relief from opiate withdrawal symptoms (runny nose, nausea, diarrhea, chills, etc) for a significant number of people. Miami’s combined methadone clinics and buprenorphine-approved physicians allows for a good range of opioid treatment choices.

feature4bAn article in Maine’s Bangor Daily News outlines a case recently decided in which the Town of Warren, Maine was found to have adopted an ordinance that was ruled discriminatory and in violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Lifestyle Change and Responsible Behavior

drug-treatment-opiate-addictionPeople facing addictive disease cover a wide variety of maturity levels, individual capabilities, and in their level of desire for sober lives. What I mean is that some are further along in their mindset and are really ready to live drug free. They embrace the challenge, and they recognize that some work lies ahead in order to get their life properly sorted out.

Others are sometimes only motivated by the present crisis. They do the right thing only long enough to avert the crisis, and then they’re back to old behavior and old attitudes like they didn’t miss a beat.

With opiate addiction, people from all walks of life can develop a problem – from the chronic troublemaker to the … Read more
