MAMA.ORG was established in 2006 after my son, Robby Garvin was killed by a doctor who prescribed him Methadone for pain. Even though he took it as he was told, within 40 hours he had went to sleep and never woke up. Never to see his 25th Birthday or live the many years of his life he should have had left.
I have spent several years and many personal hours researching every aspect of this KILLER NARCOTIC along with other drugs and practices that have led to addiction, medical negligence and even death.
I can never bring back my son but if I (we) can just save one other life....then all my work has been worth it.
God Bless, Nancy
This is the drug that is killing so many of our loved ones...
FACT: Methadone is highly addictive, Schedule II narcotic and has been described to be harder then heroin to withdraw from.
FACT: Most Pro-Methadone Advocates are user’s themselves and are still actively feeding their addiction when using Methadone. Most have no intention of ever becoming "drug free". They will say or do whatever it takes to convince the public how safe this lethal drug is. Diversion is only a part of the numbers who have died from this drug. ALL VICTIMS deserve to have someone to speak for them, not just a few.
