It is not legal for a GP Physician to prescribe methadone to maintain an addict. Methadone may be prescribed for pain by a standard Doctor - - but not to maintain an addict. You may have to search pretty hard.
well first of all i have no idea where that is and i have been at my MA methadone clinic for a year at 100mgs and i can't even get take homes because they dont allow them to anyone on probation and the only reason im on probation is because i got caught with heroin before i got clean and on the clinic. So consider that clinic you used to go to extremely rare, even if i wasn't on probation they only do 6 day take homes tops. What you should of done was moved to an area that was closer to your clinic if its thats hard to drive 3 hours for you. My sobriety means everything to me too and i have to drive 40 minutes every morning until my probo is up in 4 months, even tho all my urines have been clean too. You really need to think about whats more important to you , living in a new place where you have to struggle to get your dose or living near a clinic so you can live your life. Whatever clinic you went to that gave you a month of takehomes at a time is nuts, i've never heard of it, and no doctor will prescribe you methadone pills unless its pain related like the other person said.
Try looking more in your area, theres got to be another clinic around that closer than 3 hours away, jeez it's 2010 these clinics are everywhere these days. I know i wasn't much help but like you my sobriety is everything to me too and if i want to stay sober i do what i have to to stay on good terms with my clinic, my counselors and go the distance.
