Beasley Allen Files Class Action Suit Against Methadone Clinics

Beasley Allen has filed a class action lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Montgomery, Alabama on behalf of a local woman, alleging the Defendants operated “Methadone Clinics” which promised to treat addictions to heroin and prescription drugs by providing detoxification and counseling services. However, patients were instead charged weekly for methadone without receiving treatment to end addiction.

Named Defendants are Colonial Management Group, L.P., Colonial GP, L.P.; and Montgomery Liquidating Professional Corporation d/b/a Montgomery Metro Treatment Center and Gilberto Sanchez, M.D.

According to today’s press release at PR Newswire, Beasley Allen founding shareholder Jere L. Beasley was quoted as saying: “These companies told our client and others that they would help them overcome their drug addictions when, in fact, all they have done is gotten them hooked on methadone. It is nothing more than legalized drug dealing. They should be ashamed of what they have done to a tremendous number of people who trusted and depended on them.”

Headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, Beasley Allen is comprised of 44 attorneys and more than 200 support staff. Beasley Allen is a national leader in civil litigation, with verdicts and settlements of over $20 billion. Beasley Allen is the largest plaintiff’s law firm in the country whose offices are located in one city.

    All I can say is that from 2002 through Spring of 2006 I myself was a patient of the above named clinic. I can guarantee that if this patient wanted to in fact stop taking Methadone all they needed to do was let them know. They would have been placed on a managed detox and monitored. But no one can read anyone else’s mind. If a patient does not speak up how are they to know what it is exactly they want. It is my honest opinion this patient sees a way to which they can make some easy money and are taking the steps to do so.
    counseling is provided. But my experience while going to this clinic is that the majority of the patients were reluctant to attend such counseling. Many of them stated they did not have time, or simply thought they needed no such counseling.
    I applaud Montgomery Metro Treatment Center. They along with Methadone helped save my life.
    At one point when I decided that I wanted to start lowering my daily dose of Methadone, I was allowed to do so at a pace that was comfortable for me. At no time was I told that I had to keep taking Methadone. This lawsuit is a waste of time.

    I am one of the apparently rare survivors of the harms of methadone, my friend was not so lucky and died Nov 2012 of fatal toxicity of methadone and xanax, I was taking methadone and ativan.
    About 2005, I was put on methadone for pain management. Approximately a month later, if that long, I began passing out and sleeping a lot- the problem was that I could not be woken up! Then came the “seizures” and countless trips to the ER via ambulance. The last time it happened, I was out for 6 hours and the ER doctor was prwpairing to intubate me when I came to; I was accused of overdosing, but I had my pills with me and when they counted them, I actually had more than what I should’ve had!
    It was not until several years later, when I came across a study that described what happens when ativan and methadone are taken together…respiratory arrest…and not just occasionally, more than 80% of the time and a high number of those died! I am lucky, many many others are not and I want to help!

    I had been a patient at Richmond Treatment Center in Indiana. I was trying to detox off of methadone properly. They made it so difficult that I couldnt do so. With my “counseling” I had to bring in check stubs to show that I was employed. When I brought my check stub into my couselor(he stated I earned twice what he did annually) he got very upset. I had been a patient at the clinic for over 12 yrs. I was a stellar patient but mysteriously failed a drug test and was taken from a months take home to 2 weeks take home. but no more than a month later i was given a certificate for 1 yr of clean drug screens. I have successfully detoxed from 139 to 46 mg (which they did not encourage at all). When they saw I was detoxing successfully I mysteriously failed another drug screen and was encouraged to increase my dose. I am very proud to say that the only substance that I have ingested over the last 12 yrs is methadone. Once they told me I failed this drug test I offered to go straight to the local hospital and take a blood test and I would pay for it but they denied me that opportunity. My main goal in contacting you is to hopefully save some poor soul from the agony, embarrassment, and redderick that I have went through. I saw many kids being accepted into this program that didnt need to be and they were encouraged to increase their dose quickly. Right after the second time they said I failed a drug screen I withdrew myself from the program. I will do anything in my power to help advocate against and stop anyone else from going through what I went through. Thank you for your time

    Hello again,
    Well its been going on four weeks since I withdrew from R.T.C. It’s rough but doable. The frist week out of treatment R.T.C contacted me by phone and suggested I remain in treatment. They called me last week to see if I wanted to come back, not to check on my well-being. After a trip to my dentist with several bad teeth I was told 12 yrs of methadone was the cause. I also went to my optomistrist after noticing my eye sight dimishing over the past few yrs. Now I have what they called lazy eye (im cockeyed) which didnt start to turn out till my senond yr of treatment. the optomistrist stated it was do to the methadone. Would love to receive some info from your ferm. If I dont hear back ill just try to find a firm in my state that I live in. ANYONE that reads this and is considering entering into a methadone maintenance program DONT!!!!! It’s not worth it.

    Although “comprise” is used primarily to mean “to include,” it is also often stretched to mean “is made up of”—a meaning that some critics object to. The most cautious route is to avoid using “of” after any form of “comprise” and substitute “is composed of” in sentences like this:
    “Jimmy’s paper on Marxism was composed entirely of sentences copied off the Marx Brothers Home Page.”

    There’s a lot of disagreement about the proper use of “comprise,” but most authorities agree that the whole comprises the parts: “Our pets comprise one dog, two cats, and a turtle.” The whole comes first, then “comprise” followed by the parts. But there’s so much confusion surrounding the usage of this word that it may be better to avoid it altogether.
