(Rockland ) Methadone clinic opens in city – Community – VillageSoup.

This is what happens when patients and clinic owners don’t take”NO” for an answer from towns enacting ordinances that keep clinics out (which is illegal-but usually not fought in court).

    I know former convicted felons, (drug related charges), that
    are fully functioning in community, church, and family. They are
    educated and some have served in local political positions. And even
    in ministry capacities in their church.

    There are many savvy employers who would love to hire a recovering or
    recovered alcoholic (or other chemicals), irregardless of a former

    drug/alcohol related charge. This does take work on the part of the recovering person. Many can and do make it by the grace
    of God and with resources available in the community.

    I am one of those people. I also am blessed with an amazing family
    and friends who love just as I am. I share the same human pain that
    folks normally experience in life and I look to The Great Physician,
    my friends and family for the support that I may need during the good times and the not so good times.

    I know some of the people who founded a clinic. Hopefully, the powers that may be
    would allow for more of these.

    This link is only enabled for people who subscribe to Village Soup, unfortunately! However, I will try to get a cut and paste copy of this article for our readers.

    This clinic opened after a year of legal battles and opposition. YEAH!
