A Call For Voices *This is a call for voices. If you are a loved one of someone currently using methadone, or a loved one of someone who has passed away because of methadone use I would love to hear from you. I am a documentary filmmaker working one a film that will expose the realities of methadone and the effects it has on our society. I am asking for stories to share that will help reform regulation of this drug, and also take away the social stigma of what it is to be on methadone. * * * *My commitment to this film comes from a very real place in my life and the life of my family. My father has been on methadone for over 35 years. My brother for five. My family battles regularly with the health issues methadone creates for both my father and brother, as well as the social stigma's that come along with someone on this medication. * * * *I am driven to explore all angles of the methadone culture. I want to hear from the loved ones who have lost someone to methadone deaths, the loved ones who are losing someone to methadone life, I want to hear from the methadone users, and I want all the same from the other side. I plan to reach out and explore what the people at the clinics believe, I want to hear from the pharmaceutical companies and the government run committees that "regulate" this drug. * * * *Please help me bring a strong voice out to the world that tells the full story of methadone. You can contact me directly by emailing voiceweneed@gmail.com. Tell me about yourself, what drew you to reach out and where you are from. I look forward to hearing from you.* * * *All the best!* * * *Angelica*

PostSubject: Methadone Death Video   Sun May 13, 2012 4:20 am

Tomorrow will be my 4th Mothers Day without my son Jason Patrick Healey. I keep watching the new video dedicated to all our children who have died and the sad thing is that Wendy died in 2006, Jason died in 2009, and Krista in 2011. The years keep marching by and our children keep dying. How many children have to die before this country stands together to save our children from this epidemic that is sweeping this country. Please sign our petition on stopmethadonedeaths.com. Keep Methadone in the clinics and highly educate doctors and patients.

What do you think about the new look of the forum? Hope you like it. I was trying to make it more user friendly.Thank you so much for everything you have done. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tonya,

I know today must have been so hard on you. I am so sorry you must travel on this journey of grief and I pray that time will soften your pain. Mothers Day always seems to be the hardest one for me even after 3 years. I made it through the day and did enjoy having dinner with my husband and daughter but I was missing Jason. Yesterday a young man stopped by my house asking for donations for a group called Teen Challenge. They are a faith based one year rehab program for young people. I gave a donation and shared Jason's story with him along with the stopmethadonedeaths.com and oxyabusekills.com websites. I also offered to give a speech about Jason's story if they ever needed me to try and help save a young life. The young man said he was going to give a sermon on Jason and share the websites in hopes of helping other young people get and stay clean. I love the new look of the website and I thank you for all you do to help save others.

HUGS,
Sharon

Karen,

You are so right that everyone both old and young needs to be educated on just how dangerous Methadone is and how many people have died because of this drug. I remember calling a Plumber about a year after my son died and the plumber's son had taken over the business because his Father had passed away. I told him how sorry I was to hear that his Father had passed away and I told him I knew what it was like to lose someone because I had lost my son to a Methadone overdose. I was shocked to hear him tell me his Mother had passed away from a Methadone overdose first and that his Father had taken some Methadone a few months later and had also passed away from Methadone Toxicity. Until Jason died from a Methadone overdose I had no idea how deadly it is, how uneducated the doctors and patients are about the dangers, and how many deaths it has caused. All families need to be aware of the dangers of Methadone because now that it is prescribed for pain and is on the streets anyone can come in contact with it and die from it. I pray your daughter will stay clean and my heart goes out to you and your family. We love our children and when our children suffer from addiction we suffer along with them.

God Bless you and your Daughter,
Sharon Sykes Healey
