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.
