Facts

  • Methadone can be prescribed by a doctor for pain relief, but can only be prescribed for addiction treatment by physicians who liaise with methadone clinics.
  • When taken in equal doses, the withdrawal symptoms that occur with methadone are much more severe than those of morphine and are significantly more prolonged.
  • Methadone users who are pregnant are at risk of premature labor or having a miscarriage if they abruptly stop using the drug, and many women choose to continue using methadone throughout their pregnancy to minimize these risks.
  • Valium dependent individuals eventually have to take more and more Valium more frequently to achieve the desired effects, and this can happen when someone is legitimately prescribed the drug or abusing the drug illicitly.

Hialeah - Gays and Lesbians

Gays and lesbians who are having problems with drugs and alcohol have the option of going to a drug rehab facility that is specially designed for them. Choosing to go to one of these programs is an excellent first step towards recovery. While in treatment recovering addicts not only deal with their issues with drugs and/or alcohol but also work on other emotional and personal problems they are having difficulties with. Gays and Lesbians in treatment examine how their destructive behavior was a result of inner feelings left unresolved. Counseling and/or therapy helps in resolving issues with isolation, shame, discomfort in one's own skin, feelings of rejection, etc. Once rehabilitation is complete they will be able to feel more secure about who they are and know that drugs and alcohol is not the solution.
