    Default Methadone Treatment

    Hey everyone,
    I just had a quick question I was hoping someone could help me with, I just can seem to get a clear answer on this.
    I have absolutely NO criminal record, clean as a whistle in that department, but a little over a year ago I voluntarily (NOT court ordered) joined a Methadone Treatment Program that im still apart of today.
    I was just wondering if being on the Methadone Program would have any negative effects regarding my CCW being approved.

    Thanks!
    -Brian

    Question 11 – E on the current ATF Form 4473 is as follows:

    Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, or narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?

    ATF Form 4473

    Since your answer would appear to be yes I'm going to guess that there will be some negative effects WRT getting a CHP

    Are you a heroin addict?

    Being a drug addict will prevent you from legally getting your CHP (if you fill out the 4473 honestly). If you have ever been arrested for possessing/using illegal drugs, it will be on your record when they do your background check.

    Yes, being in a treatment program, voluntary or not, shows a history of drug usage which will prevent your getting a permit. Lying will get you prison.

    I applaud you for seeking help for your substance use disorder. It would be unlawful to carry a firearm while in a treatment program. In that Methadone is highly addictive, I would suggest titrating down to 40mg and entering an abstinence based program. Then when you meet federal and state guidelines for carrying it would legal. It is also unlawful to omit the information on an application. I had to wait due to TN law. I know from my experience that stability comes with longterm sobriety.
