DEMAND FOR METHADONE TREATMENT
In the London (Ontario) Free Press of Aug 22 is a story headlined: "Methadone Clinic Overrun by Visitors." It's a good news story - testimony to the motivation that exists among opiate dependent individuals for treatment. Reference is made to "stunning numbers" of applicants for admission. The hoped-for common sense response will be for City Government to plan immediately for rapid expansion of treatment capacity to accommodate promptly all who can benefit.
