Methadone Mondays

Every Monday / 5-6 pm Eastern

We believe methadone access is lifesaving. In response to COVID-19, we organized a response to allow methadone patients access to medication via take-homes, preventing them from having to go to crowded clinics daily during a time of mandated social distancing. As restrictions were lifted, we shifted our focus to researching what happened to people with take-homes and exploring how to keep rights we gained. We are also working on enumerating patient rights.
