I'm in contact with several physicians, some of them psychiarists, who are trying to sort out the new regulations which might, just might, allow them to treat me with buprenorphine
, which, I suppose it's fair to say, is the next best thing to methadone. But the methadone program in SO Cal? ****. PURE ****. Don't waste your time. Wait for the new legislation to filter down into the private practice arena. That's what I'm doing. Until then, I'm just hanging on, like you.
