Patient Testimonials | Opioid Addiction Treatment Services

The methadone maintenance program at BHG has helped me tremendously to stay off heroin, and my counselor is great. She is down to earth, and I feel that she knows me. Without this program, I would surely be dead sooner or later, and it is helping me with my relationship with my fiancé.

I’ve started going back to school. I respect myself a lot more. This program has helped me in a lot of different ways, not only getting clean. It’s helped me get back on my feet.

The clinic has helped me deal with my depression and getting clean. Being able to talk to a counselor helped 90%. I even go to groups. I don’t know where I would be without the clinic.

I am very thankful I had the clinic to come to. If I had not had the clinic to come to, I would probably not be here today. I was taking thirty plus pills a day. I went to [my local hospital] and they told me if I didn’t do something I would be dead soon. I have also held down a job for three years now. I am very thankful for the clinic.

Methadone treatment, for me, has been a blessing. If I had not been accepted into methadone treatment, my life would be in complete chaos. I truly believe because of this treatment, I am alive, have great relations with my family, have God in my life, and also have a beautiful son. More people need to have the option of methadone treatment, and that requires more clinics.

I know that if it wasn’t for BHG I would be in one of two places – in prison or in the ground. It has changed my life for the better. Also, the people here really do care and are here for you. I would recommend that anyone who has a drug dependency get help.

This clinic has helped me to get my life back together and lead a normal life. I now have money in my pocket and pay my bills on time. I don’t have to worry about who’s got what and where to get it. It takes every penny you make to make it out on the streets. This place takes the stress off and keeps my paycheck in my pocket. Thanks.

I was taking 25 Hydrocodone a day and 3 to 4 OxyContin. I was ready to stop and clean myself up. I went to (residential) rehab for 6 months and got out and went right back. I came to BHG, and after about 6 months I was off the drugs and on my way to cleaning up my life. Now I don’t take any drugs, and I feel much better about my life because of BHG and the help I am getting here.

I am not sure what would have happened to me if not for the program. Sometimes decent people get in bad situations and need help. The program has helped me lead a somewhat normal life. I am not sure what could’ve happened if not for the existence of this methadone maintenance program.

During the past six months Methadone Maintenance Treatment has helped me out a lot. I have been able to accomplish a lot more and save a lot of money. The staff, especially my counselor, has been great about helping me deal with personal issues. This is a great treatment facility and I would not have gone anywhere else.

Before going to the BHG clinic and beginning methadone treatment and counseling sessions my life had no hope. I was using drugs of all sorts and doing things I thought I never would see myself do. I thought there was no answer to my problem (addiction). I lost all control of my life. I am very sure if it wasn’t for methadone treatment and counseling that I wouldn’t be here today. Thanks to the other thoughtful and courteous people at my clinic: the program director and the folks at the front desk who are always there to help, and the nurses who are always quick to answer any of your questions or concerns. It’s just great all the way around. One day I hope to help other people who were like I was before, lost, addicted, and hopeless, find what has changed my life!

Methadone Maintenance Treatment has saved my life. I don’t know where I would be without it. I have my quality of life back. My relationship with my family has greatly improved due to this. Before methadone, my life revolved around getting high and the next fix. That, unfortunately, was what was important. I wasn’t able to be the parent, friend, daughter, sister, or lover that I wanted to be. Life sucked. Since starting methadone maintenance treatment a little over two years ago, I have a new lease on life. The really important things matter again. My son is my number one and I do everything for him. My health and attitude have drastically improved. Life is what it should be. With the resources and coping skills I have received here, relapse is not in my future!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q
A

Q: We don’t give alcohol to alcoholics, why give drugs like methadone to someone with an addiction?

If a person has an addiction to drugs, his or her body has become chemically conditioned to expect those drugs. When the body is suddenly deprived of the drugs it is expecting, unconscious physical withdrawal occurs. The physical and emotional effects of withdrawal are typically very severe. During this time, a person has little ability […]
