A lot of drinkers do have a bee in their bonnet when it comes to O.S.T. though, if I had a quid for every time a drinker says that people on methadone are getting high for free thanks to tax-payers money I'd be able to afford a private script !

You certainly have a bee in your bonnet about drinkers!!

Unless someone has an alcohol problem, they font need to be abstinent. I am not abstinent from alcohol.

Trouble is they have a double standard....they say everyone who takes opiate has a problem when its not the case they say the very fact you take opiates is "proof" of addiction....DUH

The journey through treatment should be led by the patient, if the patient decides that they would rather remain maintained then it should be accepted by their provider.
I've not read the statement (yet) that a coerced/unwanted reduction will nearly always prove unsuccessful.
Exactly in "treatment" like alcohol users....who get their drug dispensed by the local pub
