Cycling Inquisition: Methodone clinics and the lessons we can learn from them

Cycling Inquisition: Methodone clinics and the lessons we can learn from them.

An interesting take on the “walk” a methadone patient has to take getting to a clinic, when they have literally no other means of transportation.

And if you read this, take the time to stop and think how it would feel to be the person that has no option BUT to walk to get treatment….and then stop and think of the 280 patients at the Turning Tide clinic who now must figure out how to get 60plus miles to and 60miles home from the closest clinic, now that Turning Tide has been shut down.

Would we have allowed this to happen to any other kind of patient for any other disease?  Would it have been ok to shut down a treatment facility if it were the only one for 60miles, say, if it were  for the mentally ill or if it were a facility  for people with lung disease?
