I am posting this to make residents of Pburg a bit more informed. You may already be aware of the methadone clinic in your community. It's the small building that sits just behind the floral workbench on Roseberry Street. Methadone clinics can be great facilities for people that need to get help and treatment. This one is not such a place.
My uncle had horrible back problems, his doctor had him on so many pain meds he could barely function- he became addicted. He had to go to the clinic to detox.
From what I've gathered, this clinic is owned by someone that also owns clinics in Plainfield and Tom's River. This 'someone' is making a killing. They charge each patient 80 bux a week regardless of dose. They do not accept insurance- but your cash or credit cards will do just fine. They only operate from 6am until 11am to avoid paying their staff all day.(by the way, they turn staff like crazy because any REAL medical professional quickly realizes they are involved in a SHAM).
If you are a patient and you come up 'dirty' on a urine test- little or nothing is done about it. Patients are 'required' to go to group for treatment (that's how they get away with charging you $80-the state supplies them FREE methadone- they supply 'therapists') but if you miss group- no biggie- it's not like they are there to actually help- they are there to make money.
Now, the reason to go on methadone is to DETOX, right? This clinic has NO problems getting you up and up and up in your dose. Some patients are getting over 300 milligrams- which would take YEARS to detox from-YEARS of patients making the owners richer and richer.
Oddly enough, if you are there for even a second after you 'dose'- you will be quickly shooed from the property- they don't want any unnecessary attention- in fact, they don't even have any signs outside. Also, they don't want some junkie dying on their property exposing the fact that they are dosing people at ridiculous levels. Even when there were several bullet holes in the front windows-not a word- no news story in the paper, nothing.
I could go on forever about the things that were said to my uncle and the reasons why this place should be shut down- I'm just glad he's outta there.
I would take him sometimes in the morning- see the drug deals going on right outside the door- it's a JOKE. The mayor or the state or someone should do something about this. Maybe no one cares- they just think it's a bunch of druggies. Well, there are veterans that go there, moms, dads, neighbors, friends- they have problems- they need help- this place is supposed to be providing a service- and they are just ripping them off. I will admit some of them are 'bad' people- as I mentioned- I saw the deals taking place myself- and as residents of phillipsburg you should be concerned that this facility is attracting them in and not rehabilitating them at all.

I need information on this clinic. My daughter needs help and was referred to this clinic. She's been in and out of rehab facilities and assured me this is the way to go. Now I think she's using this as a fix. Can anyone help me.

to the people who want clinics to be shut down. you rather have junkies( as you call them)stealing and robbing people ,houses,stores,ect. these clinics help alot of people. myself is one. i have been clean for 12 years now. all because on a methadone clinic., people do not undeerstand how it feels to be addicted to a drug. you need it just to wake up ,to be a normal person.the withdrawns are unbareable. you shit yourself,throw up,can eat,sleep,body pain, and thats only some. unless you know yourself,you will not understand about someone being dope sick. i had friends and family begging me on hand and knees for 10 dollars to get straight.i didnt understand what they ment by their sick. i didnt know until i caught a habit.methadone clinics help people just to be normal again.to not have to worry about where the next bag is coming from.they can get a job now.care for their children the way they should. methadone clinic are the best thing they could do to help people that really want help. as for high dosing.the patients are the ones who ask for more methadone,thats why their on a high dose. they are trying to get a free high.which is crazy.not everyone wants to stop.but if you do this is a great place to do it.12 yrs later and i live like a normal peoson again. and i only have to go every 2 weeks. i used to go once a month for being clean so long. but since i'm not working full time,hours got cut.i can only get 13 take home bottles. but its great no more chasing anything anymore... so if anyone wants help thats the way to go.

reply 2 jrzygrl: I couldn't agree more. Everything u posted, I couldn't have said it better. There is always someone that has 2 ruin a good thing for someone else only because they never been there. If the clinic closes up because they don't know what there talking about, well maybe GOD wil give them an eye opener why they should of looked aound 2 see why the clinic is a good thing.

I want to start taking this. Do I have to go everyday? So far I've been able to hide my habit from all my loved ones but if I have to go everyday they might get suspicious.

I have a GREAT life because I use the clinic the way it was meant to be used. Only on 80MG & have not touched ANYTHING including alcohol in over 10 years.
It would be fine if it was just an other prescription you picked up at the pharmacy...but because I go pick up 27 "bottles" at a time, people talk bad about these places.
There will always be "bad" people...but because of these clinics, good people who just need help are able to get it.
Best of luck to all my fellow clinic mates who are doing well !!!:-)

Tomsriver is fine n that lady is an idiot. It's up to you what you take from the place. If u still have dirty urines that's on you. You contradicted yourself you say we get kicked off the property but yet have enough time to sell drugs. Just like at a na meeting some of the people still gt high so with the clinic The doctors go off of what u say so if u say ur still sick they'll raise ur dose so that means a few addicts lie so they can get more. Duhh

My husband has been sober for 22 years, he takes nothing goes to meeting works the program and give back. Methadone is a bad solution it does a lot of damage. My son is in rehab now. He goes to a meth clinic. Had to lie about meth no detox would take him. He has no life on this stuff, waste of money. It is nothing but a money making privately owned business. Following a 12 step going to meeting, give back join a group. Get a sponsor. When your feeling vulnerable call your sponsor go to a meeting. Methadone will destroy your body takes a long time to get it out of your system. He's gained weight binge eats nods out. They don't even know what they are doing there. They put him on high dosages. Do what you want but parents help your children, I think people think is a easy solution or cure it's not. If your desperate find a meeting talk to your parents or a friend. People in NA and AA will help, there's a lot of people out there that have been sober for a long time. It's not easy my son will struggle with this forever but I know and so does he it possible to stay sober and live a good happy life. Wishing the best to all who struggle with drugs and the families that are effected by this, cause it can destroy families.
