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: Do you feel your child/loved ones death is just treated as a statistic read this   Fri Jan 25, 2013 11:10 am

I found this in an article and feel this is how some people treat us when our loved on dies from methadone.

"They humanise the drug, make it seem all warm and fluffy and it almost has messianic status amongst it’s large following - but who knows which patient will be struck down next and regreting the day.

‘When this happens staff and patients just blame the victim, or the addictive illness or say well they had a nice few days / months or years on methadone didn’t they. In denial of the latest murder many feel’

The families feel no-one cares because they were ‘just addicts’ but many did have worth and potential and were just victims of misadventure. Those who should be battening the hatches seem to lack urgency and perspective, being snowed with reports funded by the pharm companies."
