This change will impact a nice few people around the community. (mostly addicts, family of addicts and people who have been impacted by addicts) This petition is to open up the awareness of the Methadone Program (this program is actually an addiction treatment program, where addicts see a doctor and get prescribed a medication and get their medication served to them in a drink every day by a pharmacist, this medication is actually to get addicts' withdrawals from their opiod use to disappear and to train them into being sober and living life sober, and getting their life back to normal) This medication is only served at 2 pharmacies on the Burin Peninsula which is the town of Marystown. There is no treatment in small towns like Fortune, Grand Bank, Lawn, St.Lawrence, etc... The addicts' living in these towns have to travel to Marystown every day for their addiction treatment. The purpose of this petition is to put forward what the methadone program can do for people!! Not only would this help addicts', but really think about how this could impact the people affected by addicts! Most crime is related by opiod use, addicts who are seeking their fix by doing what they have to do to get it. Also a lot of suicides are triggered by the same. The list can go on. I need people who understand or want to understand sign this petition to help me. I was an addict for years and the methadone program is what got me clean, and now I am fighting for the rights of those who cant afford their trips to marystown every day for their treatment, and give them a sense of hope to get their help! Please help me on my journey. Feel free to email me ...or fb message me "Kimberlee Boland" ...i'll answer any questions you may have, and help you understand. But, please.. if you don't agree with this, I do not want to see rude comments, I am just trying to make a difference in a good way. Thanks to everyone who Is willing to help!!

If we win, there could be a big change in our crime rates, suicides, and much more affected by addicts.
