Description

In "Inside the Methadone Clinic Industry," former methadone counselor Lisa Berry takes the reader into a never before published insider's view of the profiteering and politics rampant in the methadone clinic industry. She exposes some critical issues within the system: . Under qualified counselors . Ineffective and valueless counseling . Overregulation to stop the sale of methadone . Bureaucracy for profit . Keeping patients hooked on methadone for profit . How profits are made from addiction Berry describes in detail how patients needing methadone medication have lost their voices, and exposes the facade that has been presented to an unknowing and unsuspecting public. She suggests an alternative, ethical mode of providing this same medication to opiate dependent patients that incorporates channels already available in every community.show more
