To the guy blaming doctors: Try not abusing your prescriptions, and using only as directed. You won’t become addicted to opioids if you use pain meds properly; the simple fact is that everybody that has their wisdom teeth out (pretty much everybody in the 21st century) gets prescribed them, yet surprisingly none of them become addicted. Why? Because they don’t take more than they’re prescribed. Your comment shows exactly why you’re still addicted, and it’s because you lack accountability and play the blame game. I know this because my brother’s been addicted to opioids for 19 years, yet refuses to take accountability. Only you can change yourself.

I go to methadone clinic and only because doctors put me on pain meds from surgery.. For 2years this happened never new at time how hard it would be to stop after doctors gave me no help and told me to go to methadone clinic I work 60hors a week and have been for over 25 years and majority of people there are in same vote.So don’t blame us we’re just trying to live a normal life place blame we’re it belongs on doctors not giving us full understanding of scenario of how meds are to stop and not just pass the buck to methadone clinics.

Frank, I think your being a little harsh and you are certainly being judgemental. I, myself do go to that Methadone Clinic to get my drink and prescription. But not everyone that goes to that clinic does drugs or hang out down there, I go once a week, in and out. After my drink I go to Tim Hortons (or I did) and I Buy my food and Coffee and then I leave, no hanging around. Same goes when I buy take out from one of the small restaurant every week. Most of us are not drug users and we are not making any trouble to anyone downtown. And yes the government pays for my methadone drink everyday but I work and I pay for taxes as well and I’m not sitting here whining about it. I do think oshawa is a safe place to live and I would definitely say oshawa is a great place to raise children without
having to worry about crime. People like you is what we should be worrying about.
