i've been at this clinic for 8 years now, i'm a pretty low key kinda person, i come in get my dose n leave. i've been doing great the past 5 years. Now that I'm going down on my dose cause i'm trying to finally get out of the clinic. One perticular nurse seems to single me out, not sure why but she is delaying my process of eventually leaving the clinic. She seems to use keep using the excuse for whatever she does and I know theres no reason for what she is doing she uses ( because os ure past history of benzo use ) which I think is very unprofessional, especially when she didn't even work there when I was getting high, its just something she read in my file.She hasn't been workin there that long, I've been there way longer than her and know how the program works. The way she did my assessment was VERY unprofessional. I don't think she has a clue about addiction, nor does she care, she has no reguard to personal care.

I have a family member attending the clinic. He keeps saying that nothing is confidentail, because staff discuss his case, test results, and money so that others can hear. What happened to PHI? Isn't it a law that health information is protected and private? What happened to common courtesy to people who are trying to better themselves? They make him feel very small and insignificant every time they talk down to him.

These people are extremely unprofessional and are only concerned about getting your money. 90% of the staff is extremely rude and inconsiderate. It almost seems as though their insurance company runs their business. They do not take the time to understand an individual patients need, rather they base everything on a database. It is unfortunate because many of their patients are actually looking for help and view a methadone clinic as a way out of their addiction when this clinic just sees each patient as dollar signs.

whats the real meaning of addicts when your clinic says ur no goood cause ur urine isnt clean and ur does is low

whats the real meaning of addicts when your clinic says ur no goood cause ur urine isnt clean and ur does is low
Details:

I got to somersworth clinic. My does use to be high and I was clean. Then they got new nurses in and one perticual would make remarks and say things to make me feel bad. Well just the other day she said maybe the clinic isnt good for me. That hurt my feelings really bad. Because while I was waiting to get back into the clinic I had a dirty u/a for coke. But I told my counceler in my intake because I really wanted to stay clean. So now 2 days later the nurse speaks so loud so other people can hear my buisness in line not once but twice and she said what I was dirty for the opiates where from the surgery and the benzoes are perscibed from a psychatrist and the coke was a mistake I made but came foward with. She said maybe I need to go somewhere else cause maybe Its not the right place for me. I do think the clinic is good for me. I have done well befor. But when you have a nurse who says to ur face pretty much that theres no hope for u. how would that make u feel especialy when ur really trying to do good and they down u . I thought this clinic was to help drug addicts not down them. What happened to theres more to life then drugs. Cause the nurse seems to thinks im street junk. But I no Im not.Dr. rosenblatt was wonderful beause he new addiction very well and was a very positive Dr. And now we have a new one who doenst have a clue about addiction because u have to be clean to go up on ur does. But how do u stay well when ur does is under the mininum and ur sick when the clinic is supose yo help make u well. And the new Dr wont up you unless ur clean.how do u stay clean when ur sick and they tell u theres no hope for u?
