Methadone clinics are supposed to have emergency plans.....good luck.   Look 
at the Fed response to Katrina and to the Fed response that has left cars 
without gas in Texas where persons are trying to escape Rita.   These matters 
should be a wakeup for the Fed, State and local disaster planning agencies.   The 
Iranians got their research group together in days.   The Feds should have 
known to have gas in place for evacuees in Texas but, that is not what is 
happening.   I think in a disaster we are all cooked.   Particularly, the 
economically deprived like myself.   All I can say is that if you are opioid dependent, 
it would be best to have an emergency dose of ibogaine. "In case of disaster 
open bottle and take!"
