You'll be exchanging a situation where you periodically get clean and
stay clean for a while, falling off the wagon like me and
then cleaning up again, for a situation where you're tied to a drug every single day, not to mention tied up in a daily reporting program.
Like I said, I haven't been there/done that with methadone, so I'm just giving you some food for thought. As always, Chad, my friend, chart your own course -- just have your eyes open and be prepared for the consequences.
