Anonymous Nurse Nightingale is a licensed nurse currently working in methadone treatment center in the Unites States. She has written down, in this short piece, a review of the experiences and observations she has witnessed handing out methadone to hundreds of patients. This short read is more than that however. It also discusses drug addiction and the nuts and bolts of a methadone treatment program from the point of view of an “insider.” A quick read of this book will educate you on whether or not methadone is a good treatment program for drug addicts as compared to other treatment options. The “ugly truth of methadone” rests within these pages. Many people do not want this kind of information released to the general public nor to the drug-addicted population. That's why this author chooses to publish this information anonymously. Also, at the time of this books release she is still employed as a methadone nurse and does not want to risk being released from employment as a result of this publication.
