Nghia takes this shortcut to the Methadone clinic every morning at 7AM for the morning dose as he sets out for a new day. He will be back there at 4PM for his afternoon dose. This personal application of the daily dose was suggested by the doctor after Nghia reporting about sleepiness and drug desire in the morning following the Methadone-taking day. After a year of treatment, he is now on a stable dose and in good health. He has gained back the 15 kilograms lost to drug use and is in his words 90% confident that he will be completely drug-free after treatment. “Even if I skip Methadone for a day or two, I don’t feel the need for drug use,” he said.
