MAAR and methadone treatment recovery

ARTrngOutcome_000.pdf (application/pdf Object).

This is a wonderful report on a great group called MAAR (run by an even greater ally and mentor, Deb Dettor) has done on improving knowlegde about MAT.  It is amazing what power a great example of the how methadone treatment works has over peoples ideas about what methadone is all about.  Lisa MT (the speaker at this event) is a civil rights lawyer with two children and a prominent husband.  She is also a heroin addict who was given her life back through methadone treatment.

    Sorry–I meant “TRADING addictions”–typo.

    I was both encouraged and discouraged by reading the report. I was happy to hear that so many people agreed there was a place in recovery for MAT, but when I read the “concerns” at the end of the report I was just blown away by how many, even after the training, still held to the belief that it was just “tading addictions”, or were concerned that the treatment be time limited and that real recovery could not begin until the patient was off medication. The one comment about “traying to care for children while legally high” made my blood boil!
