A drug is a drug is a drug?

Mr. Methhead is one of our long-term patients. He's been with RCMH for ages. While our chart numbering system is currently at six digits and growing, his medical ID number only has four! Due to his bad decisions on how to finance his drug habit, he takes a break from us regularly to spend quality time with the nice folks at the Random County jail, but he always comes back.

He's out again, and that means he's on my list of clients who come in for regularly scheduled injections of long-acting antipsychotic medication. As I gave him his injection last week, he said "Wow, I got such a rush from that!"
At a loss for words, I just stared at him before finally stammering out "You know, Mr. Methhead, that may be the nicest thing anyone's ever had to say about Prolixin!"
