Methadone works, let addicts use it

Re “Addicts need treatment, not more drugs” (Letter, March 17) –

This letter, which bemoaned methadone treatment for addicts in the area, forces one to ask: “Why can’t some people just mind their own business?”

If methadone helps opioid addicts, and it surely does, what business of others is it to try to take it from them? Isn’t that between them and their doctors? Methadone is one of the most studied medicines in the world and wouldn’t have been around this long if it didn’t safely help people. I think the author of that letter should find something else to do with her spare time than interfere in the medical affairs of people she doesn’t know.

I loved this letter to the editor.  Very to the point!
