Meadows LD NAME T OPIC YEAR HOMLESS ALCOHOL Podymow study is flawed, Hwang writes: Stephen W. Hwang, Homelessness and harm reduction © 2006 CMA Media Inc. or its licensors Centre for Research on Inner City Health, St. Michael’s Hospital This study has several limitations that must be borne in mind. The sample was very small, and the lack of a control or comparison group precludes any firm conclusions about the effectiveness of the program. In addition, the accuracy of participants’ estimated alcohol use is uncertain, and data on changes in health status are lacking. Nonetheless, this novel study is a tantalizing demonstration of the feasibility and potential value of a pioneering harm-reduction program for this difficult-to-serve population. - - 5

Meadows LD NAME T OPIC YEAR METHADONE CLINICS Methadone clinics are a business and thus use individuals by exposing them to legal addictions Normine Writes: Nomine, Sine. "The Problem with Methadone Clinics: They Are For-Profit Businesses." Associated Content - Associatedcontent.com . Web. 29 June 2010. < ;. Many people do not realize that the methadone clinic is a business. Businesses are open to make money. Here in lies the biggest problem facing people who do go to these clinics . The nurses, the counselors, and the doctors that are there to help patients are actually there to keep patients coming back. Why would they want someone to quit coming to the clinic? If everyone decided to quit using methadone then they would be out of a job. I know many people who get up every morning and make it to the methadone clinic. Some of these people have tried to quit and they always go back. Most don't even last two days without their methadone. These people have ended up trading one addiction for another. That is what methadone is, a legal addiction. People can go there everyday and get a legal high. Methadone is a legal drug that serves to addict drug abusers on a more legal drug Normine Writes: Nomine, Sine. "The Problem with Methadone Clinics: They Are For-Profit Businesses." Associated Content - Associatedcontent.com . Web. 29 June 2010. < ;. As it stands , right now you can go to the methadone clinic for as long as you need to. There is no turning you away just as long as you can pay for your dose and to make that easier they will even let you charge a day if you don't have the money. People go to the methadone clinic for years even decades because they are addicted to the methadone. Their bodies won't let them quit. They start suffering withdraw symptoms within the first 48 hours. So back to the methadone clinic they go. No one will help you detox if they know you are on methadone. You have to go to a specialized institution to detox off methadone.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
