Methadone is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic. Methadone reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs without causing the "high" associated with the drug addiction.

Methadone is used as a pain reliever and as part of drug addiction detoxification and maintenance programs and is only available from certified pharmacies.

If she was or is an addict then she is guilty of blowing smoke up everyone's butt.
She claims education is the "key" out of poverty.
If in fact she does have a degree then she is the perfect example that education is NOT the "key" out of poverty.
Many other "keys" are in place including staying away from illegal substances, engaging in criminal behavior, socializing with criminals, choosing your mates wisely and on and on.
I am so sick of these liberals who use lack of education for an excuse. The problem of poverty is much deeper and starts way before a child is of school age, and this is something liberals will never touch on for fear of offending a voter base.

To play Devil's advocate, Methadone is also used as a pain killer, per drugsdotcom.

However, I don't conform to the idea of a physician prescribing it solely for that purpose.
The honorable thing for Ms. Mitchell to do is answer the question.
Again, however, I don't see that happening within her lifetime.

Speaking of JT, he's rehashing some old story claiming it's explosive or some other BS.
I am one of the undecides in that state senate race, and each and every day, something happens to tip me more and more in the direction of Del McDermott.
This doesn't just involve my vote but several other people who are on the fence. 4 years ago, it was JT and his ignorant ranting against Beau Oglesby that persuaded us to vote for Beau.
I'm thinking if the Mathias campaign had any sense they would demand that JT take the irrelevant negative posts about MM down. I want to hear about issues and not what someone perceives to be personality faults. I don't care about that. It's all in one's perception anyway and/or just because
someone is a "loving mother" doesn't mean they can't be a sponge as well.

I don't think so. Bottle looks to have been discarded so it's fair game. That's one of the reason why they tell you to remove and destroy labels off of prescription med bottles. That and to prevent other addicts from knowing you may have narcotics in the home.
If she is this irresponsible on the little things it's not a leap to say she's negligent in other areas as well.

Anonymous said...

Ok a couple of things to consider.

First...

For those that say "So What. She was trying to kick her habit and thats a good thing"...I ask how is this any different than the crack smoking mayor of Toronto ?

Bottom line you should not be in a position to create policy for others if you are breaking the law.

Second...

If she is on the Methadone program then there is a good chance she is still on it as the local Methadone program does not offer a plan to get you off of Methadone.

The local program just keeps upping your dose until you are completely addicted to Methadone and no longer need the Heroin or OXy's. After you are clean of those drugs they just keep giving you the Methadone and never try to wean you down from that drug. You basically stay on the methadone program indefinitely and they will happily keep supplying you with the drug.

In essence the county transfers you from your street dealing and ensures that they become your primary drug dealer. I can only assume they keep the addicts on this drug to copntinue getting funding.

Now in fairness the people on the Methadone program get their drug in liquid form and they have to take it in front of the people who give it to them.

It is never prescribed because it is feared that an addict will abuse the drug and could die if they mix the Methadone with another Opiate or depressant drugs.

With this in mind I can say that this is certainly not the standard type they give out to people trying to beat an opiate addiction. This would more than likely be the type giving for pain management.

What has me curious is that it looks like it says there is 168 refills. If that is the case then its a very safe assumption that taking Methadone for such a long time would make her addicted.

Maybe she gets it in pill form due to her position on the counsel and someone is covering for her so she doesn't have to wait in line at 7 am with all the other "Commoner" junkies.

If this is the case then it is very irresponsible to allow an addict to have this much access to Methadone unsupervised.

So many ill-informed opinions and so little accountability. If you are proud of your comments- if you believe them to be true and right- at least have the courage of your convictions and include your name. YES prescription drug abuse is a serious issue in our community. NO a photograph like this does not indict anyone who may well have a medical condition for which the prescription is indicated.

Let's be accurate in our descriptions. She is not a crackhead. Please. She is a junkie. A recovering junkie, perhaps, but not a crackhead.

Old lifelong dopers use methadone as one of their "Let's Get High" drugs, not "I'm Trying To Get Well". It's right in their with heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and every other chemical that lifetime screwballs use to escape reality. Liquid vials of methadone for shooting or pills doesn't matter, dopers love it. The "I'm Getting Cured" angle is usually b.s. for suckers, used to mask/hide their addiction. I've seen it first hand for 40+ years. They have NO intention of ever stopping and are readily willing to sacrifice anything or anyone to get high again, and again, and again. Get it? Don't believe any excuse she might give, should she give one. They're ALL full time liars.

TO 11:11 The number 168 does not refer to refills but the number of pills in the bottle and that is rather a large amount of pills to give out for a month as that comes to 168 divided by 30 is like 5.6 pills a day nice high for the day so like one every 4.5 hrs.per day ??

JoeAlbero said...

4:03, Let's get something very clear here and that goes for WBOC and the Daily Times.

At that date, Laura Mitchell was already through the primary election and was a candidate for Council.

The Daily Times wants to twist this story by saying she was NOT a Council Member at the time. OK, technically she was not.

Mitchell by her own admission states that this is in fact her pill bottle. I'll save the rest of this unbelievable story until my later Post tonight.

That being said, the question is, WHY would ANYONE be prescribed ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT Methadone pills, more than FIVE per DAY?

Oh, it gets better. Wait until you see what WBOC and the DT's claims is her reasoning, ESPECIALLY YOU DOCTORS.

Believe me, tonight's story right here on Salisbury News will blow your mind. Not that WBOC's and the DT's won't blow you away, because from what I have already been told, (and I'm waiting to see if it's actually true) it's UNBELIEVABLE.

He is just as much a problem as she is and he probably new she was on drugs. There best friend is Sarah Meyers who worked on Laura's and Jim Ireton's campaign. Her reward was a full time job with the City of Salisbury. She is the full time Curator of the Poplar Hill Mansion.

Chris Demone is also a good friend of theirs who also got a full time job with the City of Salisbury as Jim Ireton's PIO(Public Information Officer).

That was an unneeded position and it goes to show you that click of Laura Mitchell and Josh Hastings is corrupt. ALL of the local Democrats are extremely corrupt.

It would be in the best interest of all the voters to vote Republican only in Wicomico County. Local Democrats are crooks and that is why we have a serious spending problem in Wicomico County and the City of Salisbury.

Is there a link somewhere that I can see the story on WBOC? I don't really expect them to make a big public deal about it, but I can't find anything on their site (story or video).

The story was the lead at 6pm on WBOC. It did not run at 7pm however the lead at 7 was talking about the heroin epidemic on the shore.

Ask her if she's going to give up her seat on the City Council if elected, not that there's any chance of that now.

Given her family history (it isn't pretty) I'd guess that a lifetime of pain medications is accompanied by a mental aberration, most likely bipolar disorder. Very common with migraine and cluster headache sufferers.

It would be nice to see what name of prescribing physician was. Unfortunately, a very small minority of physicians are less than circumspect in their medication advisement. Ten mg x 4 tabs is a whopping amount of medication used for just about any circumstance other than intractable pain due to cancer!

Since Joe Albero will approve any rant by any fool wishing to defame others but mine is edited out, let me say it here: Today's discussion of an individual's prescription is filled with many opinions, much ignorance, and precious little accountability. If you believe your opinion to be true and fair, have the courage of your convictions and include your name. It is certainly true that prescription drug abuse is a devastating epidemic locally. It is also true that prescription medications, including the one in question here, are used for legitimate medical purposes under the care of a physician. What's more, few drugs have only a single indication, and the assumption behind the mean-spirited and ill-informed comments on sbynews demonstrate little more than ignorance, cowardice, and petty name-calling.

There are a lot of personal digs here, but the problem is: We need a government official who makes fudiciary decisions regarding the city and county to be of the highest caliber and sober mind. In this case, she seems to be neither of these. Things are bad enough and we don't need anymore trainwreck people in office. Please get the word out Joe so we can get her replaced. Thanks for posting this.

Chuck, seems like all of you liberals are flat out liars and will say anything.

In fact, I happen to know the Governor personally, (as you know) and I think it's about time I share this lie with him directly.

Who knows, maybe you'll be looking for a new job in the private sector in the near future.

For Maintenance Treatment:
Patients in maintenance treatment should be titrated to a dose at which opioid symptoms are prevented for 24 hours, drug hunger or craving is reduced, the euphoric effects of self-administered opioids are blocked or attenuated, and the patient is tolerant to the sedative effects of methadone. Most commonly, clinical stability is achieved at doses between 80 to 120 mg/day.

BINGO!

Well that math adds up...

In the Daily Times article she states that she had tried various therapies for migraine headaches that she has suffered with since being 9 years old. She was prescribed the Methadone and only took it for about a month and then quit because it made her feel sick.

I have had migraines since my early teens. About 40 years ago. I also have tried many therapies, but my neurologists always were against narcotics. They said that the nausea and vomiting that I already had with the migraine would be exacerbated by the nausea caused from narcotic drugs. Also taking narcotic drugs for migraines could lead to more rebound migraines.

In the 40 years that I have been treated by neurologists for migraines I have had three different neurologists. They all said the same thing. I have rarely ever had a narcotic prescription. I have tried all of the Triptans; Zomig, Immatrex, Relpax, etc... through the 40 years. Have been on beta blockers, anti depressants, Nsaids, anti-inflammatories, seizure medicines, etc. Am still on a combination of seizure medicines, tripans, Nsaids, and I get Botox shots every 4-5 months. They actually recommend every 3 months but as I have no insurance and pay for these thing out of pocket I try to stretch them as long as I can. I have also had it seemed like every kind of shot; epidural, nerve block, steroid, cortizone, etc...

I only list all of that to show I do know a little about migraines. Now I can't say with 100% accuracy that no doctor would prescribe Methadone for migraines, but unless they were a piss poor doctor they certainly would not prescribe that dosage to be taken 4 times per day, each day to combat migraine. Now there have been some "pill doctors" busted in Salisbury and maybe she encountered one and was truly prescribed this in this dosage by one of them. In which case it is a good thing she quit taking them after a month.

I swear - SBYnews must be the most professional news media in the entire Country. Megan Kelly, Bill O'Reily, Bret Hume, company included. While Megan Kelly is out covering the new Czar appointed by Obama - here in Wicomico we have drug users trying to hold (2) political offices simultaneously.

Based on the high volume traffic hit count of this article - I wouldn't be a bit surprised if all three of the major news networks were to rondevu upon Salisbury City hall come AM tomorrow. Which leads me to stay tuned Part 2.
Great investigative work Joe - you truly deserve a Pulitzer in professional journalism.

To 10:06 Poster - the proper thing for her to do now is to resign. If she resists, then the other City Council members should move forward to remove her from office like happened in Ontario as there simply to much at stake.

HELL, LAURA

She called herself out in the Delmarva Daily Times and that article is all over facebook. I would have laughed the actual picture off on this blog thinking it was photo shop product but since she admits to it...it is prescribed and legal so pop away as long as you are taking it on YOUR time.

So many ill-informed opinions and so little accountability. If you are proud of your comments- if you believe them to be true and right- at least have the courage of your convictions and include your name. YES prescription drug abuse is a serious issue in our community. NO a photograph like this does not indict anyone who may well have a medical condition for which the prescription is indicated.

So I do a little check on this Bimbo and the first friend I see of her is Harlan Eagle. Imagine that the one and only Dr. Haran Eagle, Campaign Manager for the Boy Wonder Josh Hastings. Someone said Josh Hastings and Laura Mitchell were joined at the hip. Guess who her other friend is? The other half of that hip Laura Mitchell. Can you guess another friend of this liberal Bimbo? Drum Roll !!!!!!!!!! Yes it is the Boy Wonder Josh Hastings himself. What a left wingnut liberal group they are defending the Crackhead! And we also have Joe Hastings. Can anyone guess who that is?

Other friends include Rick Pollitt, Jake Day, Jim Ireton, Tom Stevenson, Vanesa Junkin, Chuck Cook, Chris Demone, Mike Dunn, Bill Duck, Susan Hargreaves Parker, Margo Sarbanes, Jimmy Sarbanes, Mark S. Thompson, Jamie Heater, Stacey Weisner, Greg Bassett, Joey Gilkerson,
Hollis Hearne Bartkovich, Ted Wycall, and Tom Becker. Looks like the whole Josh Hastings Klan.

Do you get the message? The Bimbo is a Liberal Democrat and they are defending this Crackhead druggie. What a bunch of low lives.

Thank you Face Book this tells us she is the mouth piece for the Wicomico County Democrat Club.

If she is friends with that group and she is running off at the mouth she deserves no Mercy. Open Season!

Everyone has been asking a Dr's name that wrote this. I enhanced it in photoshop seems it says Dr. PR is all I can make it out to be. We do have a neurologist in town named Dr. Peter Raymond Sebastian. Might be time to dig into him and what he prescribes. Either way she's under the influence while holding a public office, legal means or not she needs to resign. None of us need that leading us. We need a sound body and mind, time for a new career Laura, hope that supposed Mba gets you a job.

Anonymous said...

Not the kind of medicine that Dr. Sebastian practices. It's a rare thing for him to write any kind of prescription, let alone one as controversial as this medication and dosage.

Her story in the Times doesn't hold water. The date on the bottle is March 2011. The dates of her sons arrests for drugs are Aug 2009, Sept 2012 and July 2013. This begs another question. Why was her prescription in her sons car more than a year or two after she said she quit taking it? What a tangled web we weave

Anonymous said...

Could be that Laura is obtaining this for her loser husband and/or son. Headaches my foot - sounds like a lame excuse to me. This needed to come out sooner than later and all the Libs/Dems are getting hyper about this. Do you really want someone who is popping pills leading our city and county?

Anonymous said...

Jeremy Cox of DelmarvaNow is slinging mud. Just makes him look dirty. Maybe he likes his drugs too? Well, those who share common interests do stick together.

Laura Mitchell remarked that her Methadone pill bottle must have been taken from her son's car when he was pulled over by police, then photographed. Hmm... Wondering, what the heck her Methadone was doing in her son's car? And what violation did her son commit that caused the police to search his car and find the pill bottle? They don't usually search someone's car because of a traffic violation. That's quite a confession, and there's more to that story.

At least the truth about Laura's questionable life choices is now out there (for people to make an informed decision)even if some of the reporters are bias.

Stay strong Joe. You do what no one else has had the guts to do. Some don't like it because the truth sometimes hurts. But the truth shall set us free.

I have stood behind Laura Mitchell on occasions at another local pharmacy where she typically pays $1 or less for her prescription(s). If she is not playing the system, I don't know who is. I pay my typical $20-30 for one bottle. She does not deserve to serve on any council. She typically acts loopy when she she speaks so maybe her meds explain that. Low Life.
