The Methadone Pushers, great to have around. FDA Approved & the crime rate goes down.
A sad few years of opiate abuse, brings you to our site. Well. You’re at the right place, We’ll help you in your plight.
When you enter our clinic we’ll say treatments’ bout two years. Then once we grab your soul, start saying your prayers.
Cuz once we have you hooked on this drug called methadone, we have the say on what you pay. ‘worse to come off alone’.
Keep up those weekly payments or we’ll leave your ass behind. Just like your old supplier $133 or your in a bind.
But you’re in a lucky spot because your loved ones will pitch in, cuz we’ll tell them of the great care You’ll get when you come in
Advice we also have, like to get on SSI, Then we can offer you this hook up for the rest of your life.
Loyal customer, trying to ‘get well’. Our profits keep going up while you’re feeling like hell.
With Crackling bones, arrhythmias and cognitive loss, but we convince you that you’re free! Really? At what cost?!
The only difference between us and the pusher on the street is we are ‘legal pushers’. Isn’t that neat?
“I’ll see you tomorrow” we say to you each day and you stand in line like cattle – friendly dose coming your way.
We fill your mind with hope ‘oh your progressing so well. Here’s your daily dose, everything is really swell.
Til the day you don’t show up cuz your last dose did you in. Then “twas an addict, remember? Oh we tried, oh what a sin”…
A few years ago I’d not agree with what I wrote right here. Because I believed the LIE that a “for profit” made appear.
So if you’re where I’ve been. A few years ago I was.. Please listen carefully.. I don’t want you or yours to die.
And if a loved one of yours died while part of their herd, please have the State investigate so they don’t get away with murder.
My sweet loved one went to get help, as it was recommended. Only to lose his young life from careless clinic decisions.
He had hope in his future, doing all that was requested. A Clinic killed my son. It WAS investigated.
Some of you may read this and completely disagree. You have that right I tell you, but listen to one more plea.
If you lose a loved one who was going there to get well, Please request an autopsy, because the truth it will tell (and you may save someone else)
If you are a client or a patient you may say, with care I ask that you find a detox. You are so worth it. But if not, PLEASE make sure others in your household know what a methadone overdose looks like.
I write this tear stained poem, dedicated to Henry. I Love you and I’m so sorry I believed the lies and I miss you every day. Love , mom
