A DRUG addict from Kilmarnock has been receiving prescription methadone for the past 22 YEARS.
The 38-year-old, who wishes to remain anonymous, told how he was put on the drug at 16 after developing a heroin addiction at the age of just 12.
Amazingly, he claims it wasn’t until January this year that he received correspondence outlining plans to help him become drug-free.
“I’m the first to admit that over the years I could have done more to help myself, but surely it shouldn’t take 22 years on methadone for somebody to look at my file and realise something needs done.
Jesus. 22 fucking years and no-one thought to ask the skaghead about getting off the shit???????
What the fuck are the doctors taking in that place?
OK, so another day, another fuckup by the NHS, nothing exciting there, is there? No, not really. But this caused me to black out from rage:
“The problem as I see it is that there is no real incentive to come off methadone. Often people receive more benefits as they can claim sickness and disability through their drug dependency. So they’re getting more money than the average benefit claimant and, essentially, you’re getting your drugs free.
Just remind about this fucking "safety net" idea again?
