You don't give alcohol even a few beers to someone who's just been released from rehab. Why is it ok to he an alcoholic and not a junkie?

You can’t just start handing out Naxolone. Trust me. Naxolone for me use to be my safety net. I made sure I had it. Made me more confident to use. Biggest pain ever I have ever experienced. I appose to handing out Naxolone in clinics. Even if it has saved my life. You can’t condone this behavior.
Richard Aguilar (13 days ago)
As a former heroin addict, I can’t fathom why someone would want to be in a relationship with an addict. Unless the other spouse uses too, why would you want to be with someone who will be consumed by getting their fix. Maybe there isn’t a lot of people in Maine. Honestly, i think to succeed in Main, you have to leave. It sounds like fishing is the major thing to do and drugs are common, not a place where you could stay clean. I don’t care who you are, you work in a place where drugs are common, you will eventually fall. It’s like having a drunk in recovery working at the bar. At least that’s just my opinion.

I got hurt at work in 2006 February 20 and there I went to my family doctor and he prescribe me perks and then a year later he bumped me. Oxy’s and I have become a regular user and abuser as of May 2017 my legal daily dose by my doctor was 120mg per day but I was doing 300mg and that’s when I was checked him in the rehab on 26th of May of that year and have been clean since then. It’s just one problem, why doctors are such fucking assholes?!

I am at a loss for words regarding what is happening with the opioid crisis right now. It's like it suddenly exploded. And they're saying the prescriptions began with doctors? That's so scary to me. The thought that we did this to our own people, to ourselves terrifies me. Our work force is drowning and these are the individuals we need working in order to boost the economy. If we don't stop this thing in its tracks soon we will implode as a country. At this point, I'm all for throwing every thing at it. Suboxone programs, faith-based programs, AA. Increase my taxes so we can implement programs that work.This has got to stop before it's too late.

Hurry up and die..... Druggies........ Fake disease.... Nothing but excuses.... Blame everyone else but yourself
It’s hard to kick heroin cold turkey but with the medicine they have now you can do it without experiencing the withdrawals. What I don’t understand is why people never stop using the medicine...they end up going back for more and more when that stuff is a ‘use only when needed’ type of thing to help you keep them god awful withdrawal pains away. If anyone is able to kick the habit and make it through the withdrawals...how or why would you ever want to go back to using again? Knowing what comes with quitting. That to me is just selfishness and stupidity which are obviously clear signs of some type of mental issue.

That kids father is the nutz. Great man, you can just tell. I hope he finds solace in his grandson. God's speed to this town. It is a problem. We have to decriminalize this, and if you're addicted, dependent on opiates...or even if you properly have them for pain management needs..hear this..please....you need a board-certified pain management physician. They will keep an eye on you, test you, and know what's what. Personally, I don't judge, and wouldn't ask anyone to live in pain, or get clean from heroin (and opiate pills are heroin basically) alone. Looks like a great town, I hope they can pull through.
Robert Gauss (1 month ago)
in otherwords justas you wouldnt go to a cardioligist for a knee operation, you dont want your GP prescribing you pain meds long term...it takes a specialist..regulation is problaby headed this way anyway...AND, if you truly need the meds not to be in pain (many do) the pharmacies wont fuck with you if you're under a specialists care...
Robert Gauss (1 month ago)
Also for anyone reading this feelign hopeless...GO TO A DOCTOR, a pain managment specialist..he or she wont' "turn you in" ...they will try to help..or an addicition PHYSICIAN...but barring that...at least take a reasoned look at Kratom...Im not a physician...I just know what I see... maybe try that UNDER THE DIRECTION OF AN MD....at lest know about it....you dont have to choose between being sick and heroin. ...any way you slice it... you matter...go get help.

If you claim it yours its yours. I read a prayer in a in a gun store thats misquoted, if you want to succeed. It says: Lord make me faster than my enemy, make me keen and sharp, make me a sharp shooter to be better than my enemy. That's wrong! I say and I am: Lord I am faster than my enemy, I am keener and sharper, I am a sharp shooter and better than my enemy. You Shall Have Whatsoever You Saith. I am sober, I am clean, I am created for better and I am doing better, Blood was spilled for me, I am blood washed, I am blood saved, I am blood redeemed, I AM A SON / DAUGHTER OF THE TRUE LIVING GOD!!!

The poor Lady EMS worker is morbidly obese. She could fall into cardiac arrest at any moment. She is actually a liability to this emergency service division. Workers such as this, Police and Firemen, should be required an annual physical assessment and MUST maintain ideal weight standards. This occurs very often at most ER departments. Depending on time of occurrence, 50% can be saved, but for most, their career is over. See it all the time. So much more now, than say, back in the 1980's.

I grew up in Massachusetts and now live in Maine. The pill epidemic started in the early 2000s when I was in high school. By the time I graduated from college in 2008 I knew 10 people who I grew up with that had already overdosed and passed away. It went from Oxys to heroin and now it’s fentanyl. I lost a very close friend of mine in 2016 from fentanyl. He was a vet of Iraq and Afghanistan who received a Purple Heart. He kept is struggle and pain very secret. None of his family or friends knew he was messing around with opiates. This epidemic that was initiated by big pharmaceutical companies is killing people from every socio-economic status.

I love Maine havent' been in many years.. these areas, New Hampshire, it's as bad as it is anywhere.. save maybe Appalacia...great towns and young lives destroyed. I believe anyone needing pain meds should be under the care of a qualitifed pain management specialist. That will cut down on the "accidental" dependencies. Sorry about your friend...sounds like the war got him anyway, in a tangential way. I dont judge people like this... that's part of it (doesnt soudn like you do either).. what's needed is qualified pain and addiction doctors...not the mickey mouse system we have now. if you still know people liek this they should at least know about Kramtom.. here again .. MD is best , whichIm not, just sayign ive seen this plant work for people.... (then they are addicted to that, to be honest) but it's somethign to be aware of.

Opiates have been used for centuries yet its a big deal again now ? I agree its not a good road to travel but I gave up trying to change peoples minds after so many deaths going back to the 70's when I was a a kid ..like I said this is nothing new . Stupid " war on drugs " puts sick people in jail and has for over 40 years ? Has not helped in 40 years will not help in the 400 years . I gave up on it ..people wanna use let them use just stop putting them in jail its idiotic and serves no purpose. They dont want to address it because its a medical issue and that costs to much money ..bottom line .

Republican TBISH2016 (4 months ago)
As an ex -heroin-addict this country is going about the situation wrong in many ways. I have been clean for over three years and will be graduating at the top of my class soon with a degree in psychology. First off, I would say 75 to 85 percent of these addicts are convicted felons. Many of them got caught with drugs or made horrible decisions when they were under the influence of drugs. After the commit a crime, do their time, get off probation, most of them can never find a job or get the license they need for a job. So most of them figure their life is over and go back to using because they see no purpose in their life. With this in mind, when people relapse they either commit a more serious crime, but more than often they die. Even with the courts leaning more towards rehab more than jail, it still does no good if these individuals can integrate back into society just like everyone else after they change their lives.
DMVconARTists (15 days ago)
Exactly. Even with courts leaning toward treatment they still have that on their criminal records.. even if you can convince a potential employer that you are sober and moving forward in your life they may not be able to hire you based on policy (of not hiring felons etc..)

Republican WTF are you talking about. Most heroin/opiod addicts today are white middle to upper class people who never saw the inside of a jail. These are not the 80s addicts that the US declared war on and imprisoned them; some for decades when caught with something as small as drug paraphernalia. They didn't have to have the drug on them. That's because most of them were inner-city residents and people of color. There is no more a war, now all they have sympathy for the addicts, as there's been a change in demographics. No more imprisonment for addicts. If they locked every heroin addict up like they use to, the Dept of Corrections would be filled with white folks.

It's not oxycodone that's the problem, it's been used by doctors since long before I was born. The aggressive marketing by pharma perdue and their mission of getting doctors to prescribe opioids in higher amounts at higher dosages in the late 90s and early 2000s that really jump started this epidemic
