Medical Professionals Staff our Methadone Clinics

During the past 30 years, many opiate addiction recovery programs have had great success with a medication called methadone, which has helped tens of thousands of formerly addicted men and women overcome the addiction to opiates such as heroin, OxyContin (oxycodone) and Vicodin (hydrocodone).

Of course, the first step on the path back from opiate addiction is recognizing the extent of the problem and selecting the treatment center that best meets your unique needs. To help you make the best decision for yourself and your family, this website features information about more than 10,000 treatment centers across the United States.

Methadone Treatment Facts

Methadone treatment has been described by the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) as a “rigorously well-tested” and “safe and efficacious” treatment option for individuals who are being treated for opiate addiction. Some facts about methadone treatment include the following:

  • When used as directed, methadone reduces opioid withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, chills/sweats, muscle spasms and more.
  • Methadone works primarily by blocking the opioid receptors in the brain, which helps aid in a more safe and less painful detox process.
  • The length of methadone treatment will depend solely on the recovering user’s unique and individual treatment needs (such as how quickly he or she develops coping skills and solid self-care practices).
  • Methadone treatment can be offered at a facility during an inpatient stay, offered through an outpatient program, or provided for a recovering individual in his or her own home.
  • A variety of forms of therapy are typically encouraged in addition to methadone treatment, such as behavioral, holistic and experiential therapies.
