Hello. I became a heroin addict at the age of 14 up until the age of 29. I'm now 37 now and have been illegal opiate free for the last 8 years.
I started of on over 100ml/day of methadone and now this is down to just 15ml/day. I have given clean water samples and swab tests for over 8 years.
The problem that I have is the service I'm being provided by the local drug team.
I'm agoraphobic so do not leave the house so it makes it very hard for me to fetch my prescription.
The big problem is I never get a stable worker and I'm having to chase down my prescription. I've had the local mental health team involved and they can not get any answer from "lifeline "
What I need to know is can much gp prescribe much methadone? He is not in a "shared care program"?
This is truly pitiful service that should be their to help people. I think my best option is to drop the script and buy from the streets. This is a option I do not want to take but I'm being forced down that route.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
