    WTF is wrong with people? The fact that this young child was around ANY kind of meds she could get ahold of easily infuriates me. I pray this precious baby can recover and I hope she is placed with decent parents when she does....

    prayers said.

    I am a recovering opiate addict who went through methadone treatment, all while working full time and attending school, and I don't think being an addict automatically constitutes you are an idiot. What constitutes being an idiot and irresponsible is leaving your dangerous medication out where you toddler can get ahold of it.

    maybe it was my lack of punctuatiion but that was my point exactly.
    and if they are leaving it out like that with a toddler around, maybe they are still on drugs anyways.

    you know this story hurts to even read i'm not sure how you get deemed stable while on methadone treatment. I"m not saying anything bad against anyone who is recovering, but for these reasons ALONE you should ALWAYS have to go to the "drug shops" to drink the cocktail in front of someone. But if not always, surely if there is a child in the presence of an adult on such treatments

    No worries. I thought that might be what you meant. I didn't mean to sound harsh or offended but sometimes things get lost in translation.

    You can certainly abuse methadone, take more and get high which is why Suboxone is becoming a more preferred treatment because you simply can't get high when you take it. I was surprised to read they had the liquid methadone. Usually that is only given out at clinics where you go every day and drink your dose. In my experience when you get a prescription for it they give it to you in pill form.

    The liquid form is flavored to taste like cherry or whatever. I could see this poor little girl drinking it because she thought it was Kool-Aid or something. So sad.

    When you are taking your methadone like you are suppose to you just feel normal. Basically you are taking it so you don't go into withdrawal and you slowly drop your dose until you wean yourself off which can take years.

    This is so sad.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    I can't believe these parents had the liquid! My mom is on Methadone for pain- prior to that it was Oxycontin. I prefer her on the methadone.. though even that is destroying her mind and body.

    They used to have the Methadose (huge pill, you are supposed to break it up to be 4 doses) but from what I understand they took it off the market because people were taking the entire thing at one time and dying.

    I hate drugs, I really do.
