At our methadone clinic, we offer safe, effective methadone replacement therapy. As a proven technique in opioid drug recovery, methadone treatment can help start your rehabilitation journey.
What Is Methadone?
Methadone is a prescription drug that’s classified as an opioid. It’s often prescribed to treat pain, but it may also be used for drug recovery. Methadone is often a helpful tool in opioid addiction rehabilitation because it can reduce serious withdrawal symptoms.
Medication-based addiction therapy using methadone may also be called replacement therapy. In addition to fending off withdrawal symptoms, it works by cultivating cross-tolerance. This means that methadone treatment may stop other opioids from having an effect on the patient, which helps to treat the addiction.
Methadone is available in multiple forms, including a liquid, pill, or wafer. Advanced formulations of methadone allow for a single, daily dose for addiction patients.
Candidates for Methadone Treatment
Methadone treatment is a good option for some patients in the early stages of opioid drug recovery. Controlled methadone use can help patients suffering from addiction to opioids, namely prescription painkillers or heroin, transition into the later stages of addiction rehabilitation. We offer services to people aged 18 to 75 with a diagnosis of chemical dependence.
Consult your doctor to learn if methadone treatment could help you recover from an opioid addiction.
