What is methadone?

Methadone is a drug commonly used to treat opiate addiction. Methadone blocks the receptors in the brain that are affected by opiates like heroin and prescription drugs. This allows users to slowly detox without experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

Does Methadone Maintenance work? Is it safe?

Methadone Maintenance has been used as an effective opioid treatment for over thirty years.

 

When taken as prescribed, methadone can be taken safely. It is a legal medication that is administered under supervision.

Is methadone trading one substance for another?

Not at all. Methadone is an FDA approved, studied, and highly regulated medication. When taken as prescribed, methadone helps the patient function regularly without impairment.

Is it safe to work while prescribed methadone?

Yes. When methadone is taken as prescribed, patients can drive a car, work, or any normal activities throughout the day. Methadone can cause impairment if not taken correctly. Our nurses are highly trained to ensure that methadone is properly administered to every patient.

Is it safe to work while prescribed methadone?

It varies with every patient. Studies show that patients that remain in treatment for one year or longer have more positive results. Some patients may stay in treatment indefinitely, and that's alright. Our staff will continue to work with them through their entirety of treatment.
