Habit - Brattleboro
Located at 16 Town Crier Drive in Brattleboro, Vermont, the Habit OPCO Brattleboro Treatment Center provides medically supervised methadone maintenance treatment to individuals who are attempting to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon heroin or other opioids.
Methadone hydrochloride is a synthetic "opioid agonist," which means that it acts in a way that is similar to morphine and other narcotic medications. When used in proper doses as part of a medically supervised opioid addiction treatment program, methadone blocks cravings and other withdrawal symptoms without creating the euphoric or sedative states that result from opioid abuse.
To be eligible for this type of treatment at the Habit OPCO Brattleboro Treatment Center, prospective patients much be at least 18 years old, and must have been addicted to or dependent upon opiates for a minimum of one year prior to seeking treatment.
