From my mid teens I was using cannabis, E's, and amphets for 5 years, then I got into opiates and I have been using them for about 10 years. I tried to access services through my GP but he refused to refer me. I ended up in jail from the mid 1990's until about 5 years ago. This is what really made me access services. I got in touch with Direct Access and they put me on a methadone script. I am using 80ml and I am on weekly pick up.
The service is really good. They are very flexible and can fit me in around my work. The only thing is, I have to drive miles to come to clinic - so the location could be better for me.
