Drug addicts collecting methadone at a pharmacy are being given priority over families, a mother has claimed.How many can there be?
Louise Davies, from Greenstead, Colchester, says she has been forced to stand in hour-long queues while recovering addicts are seen first at the Boots Chemist in Tamarisk Way.That many..?!?
The mother-of-three has called for Boots to review its policy and open a separate clinic for people needing methadone – a replacement drug to wean addicts off heroin.I doubt it. I really do…
She said: “I have nothing against the patients and understand that they need their medicine.
“But if there are that many methadone takers on the books, the shop should close to see them at a certain time.
“It is not really the kind of thing you want children waiting amongst and they must feel self-conscious having to collect it in front of other people.”
