Movie Reviews

Horrible representation of Methadone maintanence program.
Edwin O. Wall | Shoreline, Wa. USA | 03/17/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This was a terribly done video about the methadone maintenance program. First off. People are not supposed to be using other drugs whilst on the program. These people were all using benzodiazapenes and it made them look like a bunch of junkies. Methadone if taken correctly is a life saving treatment. If taken with other drugs it then defeats the entire purpose behind the program. Those people are a disgrace and hinder the progress of not only thier recovery but others that may watch this video without any real knowledge. I would suggest the A.T.Watchdog site if you want to correctly take methadone for positive outcomes. Methadone is not a drug to get high on it's a medicine to stabalize your life on to get rid of bad habits aquired over years of negative use. This video is a farce and worthless."
False Impressions

"I watched this movie when it came out. At the time I was on methadone. I was extremely disappointed by it-this film only shows one side of the story of methadone. It only shows people who are still abusing other drugs. It completely ignores the large number of patients who do well on methadone and get their lives back. This film just perpetuates the negative stereotypes associated with methadone treatment. This serves to shame people who are doing well on methadone. A balanced documentary would have shown both sides-people who are doing well and people who aren't. Instead it plays into people's expectations by only showing the bad."
