    Angelo212, There is Not one thing comical about Methadone Related Deaths.It is obvious you have a stake in this ,how long have you been taking Methadone? It is not acceptable for patients to recieve substandard care if they are being treated for addiction or pain. Every person in the United States deserves and should expect quality health care.

  2. sykessl had this to say about that:

    My 24 year old son Jason was one of those 5000 deaths in 2009 and there is nothing comical about any of this. I watched him battle drugs for 10 years and he went from Oxycontin to Heroin and then died from an illegal dose of Methadone. Tonya’s daughter died from Methadone from a clinic. We have researched Methadone and know more about it then we had ever wanted to know. We ask for help from those who are in treatment to provide solutions to save lives. We aren’t trying to ban Methadone just find a way to keep our children safe.

    You really don’t have a clue about methadone and methadone treatment. There is a difference between methadone clinics and pain pill places that use methadone pills for pain. You need to research more.Your “What is the solution” is comical.

    • tonya1968 had this to say about that:

      The name of this website is Stop Methadone Deaths. When there is a methadone related death, the methadone either came from a doctor who prescibed it for pain or a clinic who prescribed it for addiction. The bottom line is there were 5000 methadone related deaths in 2009. This is cause for alarm! There are many different causes for these deaths and they need to be approached from several different angles. One of the things I would like to see is for pro methadone advocates to come forward and take an interest in also addressing these deaths. I would think this would be an important issue for all. So what is your soloution to stop these deaths?
