If you or your loved one are struggling with opioid use disorder or heroin addiction, methadone can be a viable medication resource to help you curtail your cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Methadone is one of three medications approved to treat opioid dependency, along with naltrexone (Vivitrol®) and buprenorphine (Suboxone®).
When taken as prescribed, methadone is safe and effective. By law, only an opioid treatment provider (OTP) approved by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) can prescribe and administer methadone. Rehabs that offer behavioral therapy and counseling may either offer methadone treatment as part of their continuum of care or work with other medical facilities to offer the medication to eligible patients.
About Methadone Treatment
Each methadone patient’s length of use will vary, based on their care needs and progress managing their withdrawal and cravings. The drug is available in pill, liquid, or disk form and is only to be taken under the guidance and supervision of an experienced and qualified treatment provider. At first, patients can only take methadone at clinics. After patients are stabilized and able to demonstrate consistent compliance with their program as far as dosage and frequency, they may be allowed to take methadone at home between program visits. Methadone is highly addictive when used improperly, and patients should never take more than their prescribed dosage.

Florida Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers
Florida has an infamous and unfortunate legacy when it comes to substance use and addiction. At one time, it was ground zero for “pill mills” (pain management clinics that wrote opioid prescriptions for profit) and is still battling substance use on a variety of fronts. Cocaine continues to be a problem in Miami while prescription painkiller abuse still dominates many areas of the state, from Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale to Fort Walton Beach. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest rates of overdose deaths, 7,500 overdose deaths in Florida in 2020 compared to just over 5,500 the year before. If you or your loved one are among the thousands in Florida that need help for addiction, there are many resources available to you.
Substance Abuse Treatment Resources in Florida
In response to the explosion of prescription and illicit drug abuse in the state, Florida has given birth to hundreds of treatment facilities, but not all treatment centers will offer the same services or levels of care. Some will offer inpatient treatment and onsite medical detoxification (detox); others will simply offer outpatient counseling and rehab and offsite coordination with detox. The state also offers many treatment facilities that offer Medicare and Medicaid for patients of advanced age or limited financial means. Florida has also become a preferred recovery destination because of the forgiving climate all year round.
