My question involves injury or loss that occurred in the state of:MA. I have gone through serious emotional torment due to a privately-owned, for profit methadone clinic that has a resident general practitioner and nurse practitioner. I am currently on disabilty for severe agoraphobia/depression and physical issues. I had been on this clinic for approx 18 years with no incidents of outside drug use, or any other problems. I was familiar with the place and the people and was receiving 5 take home doses per week. Without prior notice(not that it would have really made a difference), they changed their already supervised urine checks, and began not only supervising, but only allowing me a couple of minutes and threatening me that if I did not perform the test, I would lose my take home status. I immediately knew this would create a problem for me and started having trouble with serious anxiety. To make a long story shorter, by the end of May I was unable to perform the test, and they made me go there every single day. This brought on severe panic attacks (uncontrollable shaking which I still do), hyperventilating, total loss of appetite and weight loss, uncontrollable sobbing, etc. This only made them give me additional urine tests (all negative for other drug use by the way) which ultimately forced me to do a very quick detox in order to spare myself from the daily torture treatments. I was never allowed to speak to or see the resident doctor. My clinic therapist told me that he said I was shaking because I was detoxing, but as my private psychiatrist can attest to, the shaking started well before the detox got underway. In fact, last August he sent them a letter asking that they return at least some of my take homes, as he said I "was in crisis". I originally got on the clinic in order to deal with emotional and psychological issues including failed and successful suicide attempts, and also chronic pain related medical issues. The methadone had been working for me very well for all those years, and my clinic therapist would periodically encourage me to detox, as my life appeared to be so well balanced (though I rarely left my house). I finished on the clinic at the beginning of Sept. and am now in such pethetic and hopeless condition that I have begun to give my possessions away to people passing by my home. If I don't kill myself, I believe I will die of natural causes due to extreme depression, not eating, and just not caring. I am 52 years old and have had major illnesses such as hepC. I really feel as though I will not last much longer, do I have any legal recourse? Thank you.
