Hancock's addiction strategy
« on: November 28, 2019, 05:38:04 PM »
Tory minister - Matt Hancock - announces impending strategy to reduce drug-related deaths and other addiction-related harms

Could this mean time-limited OST - after all, these deceased ageing drug users often have methadone in their system  :-\

Or am I over-reading between the lines?

Surely that was the absolute flaw in the original Recovery Agenda, I've been told that nobody is interested in messing with my meds these days. I did have a 5 year battle with services which ended up with me threatining legal action though, not sure if I could go through it all again. Nobody forces people to remain maintained & if we are considered to be of a mature age surely we know what is best for us...just as other mature adults are treated. Another Torie Government will bring the country to it's knees, if we're not there already.
