Many people try and try to get clean and just can't. Many more don't even seek out maintenance programs like you have. I read a book that in England they actually prescribe heroin for addicts that have continuously tried and failed other forms of treatment. There are many benefits for the addict as well as society. The drug dealers are pretty much out of business and the addicts don't have to commit crimes everyday to support their habit. They are being maintained on clean herion that does not have God knows what in it. They are able to maintain jobs and family lives and their overall health is better because of this as they have insurance to get medical attention and money for food. Yhis forum only represents a very small population of addicts. Most don't have homes none the less computers. We do what we can though and we hwlp many. I know that maintenance drugs are frowned upon by many but the alternative is life changing. I know that when I stopped going to NA, all of the people who supported me, shunned me and told me I was doomed to relapsed. I never heard from anyone again. I still found some supportive people here though. I wish you well in your journey and am so glad that this is working for you. GBU, Corey
