On August 23rd, two news media references to methadone clinics appeared. One was in the Courier Post (New Jersey), headlined "Methadone clinic target of new suit." It detailed latest efforts to bar the establishment of a methadone clinic. According to one resident in the area, "It is a complete aberration to bring in a methadone clinic."

The other news media reference came in the form of an editorial in the Daily Observor of Pembroke County (Ontario), with the headline, "Methadone clinic should be welcomed." It noted that "... there's a big drug problem in Pembroke ... [and] dealing with it in a progressive, straightforward way is not only the best approach for those caught in the vortex of addiction, but is also the best way for the community to begin to right itself from the problems (crime, illness, etc.) associated with drug abuse. The editorial ends: "We should welcome the clinic when it opens on Monday."

The opening of methadone clinics will never solve the opiate addiction problem.It will only shift opiate addicts to methadone addicts. Why must we supporte drug abuse in any way. the goal is to help addicts to turn drugfree.
