wrong area I guess

But I’m

Curious to know how much it costs to fund a methadone addict weekly ?

I know someone who abuses this and doesn’t need it ! They are just greedy !

They are taking the precious funding from other deserving cases like mental health

I’m raging !!!

No idea, sorry.

I think that “need” is a subjective criterion, with all illegal drugs and replacements for them.

When you say “don’t need”, what do you mean? Do you mean they sell it on?

I know someone who does need it and is only prescribed a small amount so begs every day for the £300 or so the heroin he craves costs. His dad is terrified he will get a duff batch / get on the wrong side of a dealer.

All social services / drug counselling are delaying and delaying giving him the level he needs, and I can’t understand why.

I don’t know, is the answer.

Methadone costs a lot less than keeping a person in prison.

Looked at from one angle - addiction is a kind of greed. And it messes up people’s lives, even if the can’t see it.
