The Elkton Treatment Center in Maryland can help you successfully wean off of opiates.

We are a methadone clinic that is located at 212 Blue Ball Ave. in Elkton, Maryland. The Elkton Treatment Center in Cecil county provides medically supervised methadone maintenance and Suboxone (buprenorphine) detox treatment to individuals who are attempting to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon heroin or other opioids.

You are not alone. We have helped MANY people break free from the chains of addiction. We understand the delicate process of recovery and we know that each person is on a different recovery path. First, we listen, sympathize, and come to understand each person’s story. Once this is done, we hold your hand through recovery at your own pace. Together, we can help guide you and/or your loved ones to recovery.

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.

Buprenorphine is a partial opioid receptor agonist. Like methadone, buprenorphine can relieve opioid withdrawal symptoms without producing the intoxicating effects that are associated with opioid abuse. Buprenorphine was the first medication for the treatment of opioid dependence to be approved under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000.

To be eligible for this type of treatment at the Elkton 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.

In Maryland, there was a significant rise in the number of prescription opioid-related deaths increased substantially in
