Along with God and my wife, I can accredit Lexington Treatment Associates and their staff with the act of saving my life. If you are opiate dependent (whether it's heroin or pills), LTA will offer you a legitimate opportunity to lay down your habit for good. If anyone tries to convince you that Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) is simply trading in one drug for another one then one of two things is going on. Either they have never experienced the pain and misery that accompanies withdrawal, or they are like my mother, who thinks that all drugs are the devil and the only right way to do it is to just put them all down. While this sounds good, for those of us who have become opiate dependent we know that this is the closest thing to impossible that you can find. When you enroll at LTA, you are assigned a counselor with which you will sit down with one on one on a regular basis. In a timely and efficient manner you and your counselor will determine what the best dose of methadone is for you. Because we all have different levels of tolerance, what works for me may not be strong enough for you, or vice versa. I have found that my counselor is available pretty much all of the time, so if I have a need to talk to them they are readily available. This is really nice for people like myself. I am definitely the black sheep of the family, with drug use being considered the worst sort of taboo that one could imagine. I can't talk to them about it.Bottom line: Methadone Maintenance works. If it doesn't work for you, you probably didn't want to stop the drug use anyway. But if you are like myself and are tired of being a slave to the game, chasing dope and/or the high, and hurting yourself and your loved ones, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to give this an honest effort. I have zero regrets in my decision to come here.

Childress Vineyards
Following our exceptional meal at The Bistro at Childress Vineyards, we went outside where a painting class was being held beside a grassy dance floor. The DJ was playing "Cupid Shuffle" and other songs that make those of us with little to no rhythm shake our money makers like we know what we are doing. It was a great way to work off the light spring meal featured inside the Bistro, where we had exceptional service for a party of eight women celebrating the impending marriage of our dear friend. The menu changes regularly, but the Trifecta, which is an app, entree and dessert along with two ounce pours of wines that complement each was a big winner at our table. The price and portions were ideal, and the flavors were diverse and tasty. It is also easy to go gluten-free via the notations on the menu. There is a kids's menu, but let's not bring them. Childress is a lovely place reminiscent of an Italian countryside vineyard. Bringing the kids will remind you that you aren't on vacation, but in the middle of nowhere Lexiington, NC. Don't ruin the illusion.

Well, the store itself isn't too shabby, it is a bit small, but they keep it clean. The lady who takes your order behind the counter is super nice. Also, the food is really good, like- you don't feel yucky after eating it or like you just committed a sin against your body. I like this place a lot and I hope it sticks around for awhile!

Overall my experience last year and a half has been pretty good the only problem that I have had with them is that they have good counselors but they can't seem to keep them employed for very long

Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
