A friend of mine's son is at 125-130mgs of methadone per day as well as crank(meth) and IV cocaine when he can get it. I imagine there is some Oxy and other opiates(or whatever) involved also. I spoke to the head nurse at a state-funded facility here in Louisiana. He told me that they can only take a patient on methadone once the patient tapers down to 10mgs for 4 days with no other street drugs in the patient's system. The father is pretty desperate and the son wants to get cleaned up. Money is definitely an issue as they don't have a lot of it. My friend's oldest oldest son just died of an overdose and that's where all the money went. I'm looking for realistic alternatives. Any ideas? Oh yeah, the kid(27 yrs old+/-) has Hepatitis C. Any info would be appreciated.
