Methadone Treatment Info
Breaking free from the chains of opiate abuse and/or opiate addiction can be a difficult experience – but advances in medication-assisted treatment in recent decades have made this process much safer, less painful and more successful.
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.
