    Default Chemist Old Swan

    Had a bad experience last week in a chemist in St Oswald Street, You Know the one, it has moved up to the end, waiting for my med and some misfits came in, went in the side room, I was told it was a methadone clinic, is that the right word ? the lads where off there heads ? this is next to a infants school ??? I have told them I will not be back, they where not interested, seems there is more money to be made out of drudges then us ???

    People on methadone are supposed to be stable in their drugs use. They are tested regularly to ensure no elicit use and if they find anything they shouldn't they are removed from the scheme, which is part of rehab. Also Methadone has to be taken in front of staff, they are not allowed to take it off the premises because they could sell it! If they were off their heads, I wonder why they're getting more drugs. By the way this is not knowledge from personal experience - I used to work in an agency that supported drug addicts.

    What about the pubs that are a stones throw away from the school, I have seen more people worse the wear from drink staggering around Old Swan in daylight than drug addicts but of course alcohol is legal and brings in a nice revinue for the goverment. Far better an addict is trying to come off illegal drugs attending a methadone clinic than making the drug dealing leeches richer.

    Now, before anyone starts, Prefab is NOT talking about me

    To be honest, I don't notice Drunks or Drug Addicts during the day, I'm in work during the day . . . . .
    then getting drunk at night !

    They should have somewhere to go to have their medicine and it should be private too.

    Mart you beat me to it but it's in the Knotty Ash area where most - or at least one too many drunks are seen.

    You've seen more people the worse for wear from drink coz drunks in the street are obvious. Druggies are not. Druggies in general kinda creep about and keep a low profile. Good on them for attending this clinic but, unfortunately, in many cases methadone is just a substitute coz they don't have the cash for the real thing.
    I was born and bred in Tuebrook and Old Swan in them daze was ok! I still have family in Old Swan, get to visit them once a year and they're not too impressed with Old Swan these days. It's a bit sad, they've lived there since they were married in 1962.

    All chemists now have a private cubicle where customers can discuss their 'ailments' on a one to one basis in private. So if you want to have a word with the pharmacist about your humanoids or erectile dysfunction or whatever, you can do so without the rest of the customers in the shop being enthralled.


    Sorry, I meant haemorrhoids

    No they don't,this is down to the discretion of the chemist and how bad the area is for drug users.

    I know that people are using that chemist in Old Swan who do not live in the area. Outsiders are being sent to it.

    This is a fact. Go ask the girls in there.

    As I have already said Old Swan is a nice area. No druggies have ever troubled me or mine while I have lived there.

    Where are the flats and houses in Old Swan that are available on the housing? can you name some streets please.

    ---------- Post added at 08:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:24 PM ----------

    We have friends wanting to move into the area. They rent and have had their names on the housing for a house in Old Swan. 3 years they have waited. They where told it could take 10 years.

    I must put them onto you Georgie so you can show them all the empty houses up for grabs.

    My comments were not about the Swan but the situation, I worked in Old Swan in the 70's / 80's and when I got married to a girl from Old Swan we bought our first house in MacFarren Street moving on later to Broadgreen . Old Swan is still a great shopping area and a good place to get on the housing ladder. It offers a wide range of housing styles and has good transport/road links ....better stop I'm turning into an estate agent
