We all know that Local and state health facilities provide healthcare to the needy. These providers have always been underfunded. Including opiate addiction treatment will balloon their budgets, create massive amounts of patients hanging out for their daily methadone. To my knowledge, there are two methods of treatment: complete withdrawal or life long use of opiate like drugs. It is also true that some opiate patients can be trusted to follow withdrawal, but take home meds may be sold on the black drug market. But having dozens of addict hanging out for the clinic to open is not my cup of tea.
