Joycelyn Sue Woods
Joycelyn became involved in CCMP activities as Public Relations Secretary meeting with newspaper editors and writing editorials. CCMP was also instrumental in several class action lawsuits including Beazer vs. New York City Transit Authority, an employment discrimination case of which the court record remains one of the most definitive documents about the efficacy of methadone maintenance treatment and functionality of methadone patients. Joycelyn was a founder of ADAPT, the Association of ex-Drug Addicts for Prevention and Treatment an advocacy organization for HIV infected drug users. Joycelyn now serves as the Project Coordinator of the MARS™ Project. As the Project Coordinator she developed the Core Training that consists of how medications work, the science of opiate addiction, regulations and what they do, and an introduction to recovery for MAT patients.

"They looked at a small group of people with long histories of addiction," says Joycelyn Woods, president of the National Alliance of Methadone Advocates and a neuropsychologist.
It was like they picked up their lives where they left off years ago," Woods says. But staying heroin-free is not easy. Woods says withdrawal from long-term heroin use--even with methadone to smooth the path--fails most of the time. In all, she estimates that there are about 250,000 U.S. addicts on methadone.
