You are right, they do have the right to make sure I am complying, but they didn't check Tennessee RX until after the test came back negative. My counselor thinks I am a dope slinging thug, and it pissed her off when she seen I was telling the truth. I have beeen clean for 7 years, everything has been positive for me. This has been going on for two weeks. This clinic is ruthless. We are treated like malfunctioning computers instead of actual human beings. I am taking the paralegal studies program at the local community college, can you not think of anything civil I could throw at them to get them off my back. I did not do this, I didn't get any other drugs, it may have been my sister if it was actually done, but it wasn't me. I know you probably have never known anyone that has been on this methadone. It saved my life, but if a person is forced to detox off this stuff cold turkey or too fast, you feel like your going to die and i am school, if i am sick, I can't study, if I can't study, I will fail, if I fail, there goes my life down the toliet again along with my student loans and aid. Come on you are a California lawyer, surely you can think of something. But, thank you very much anyway.
