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.

We have helped many people overcome their addictions and together, we will help your loved ones get over theirs. We understand just how much your/their recovery means and how much of a delicate process this is. You can trust that we will do everything to make sure that you and your friends/loved ones go back to having a healthy, happy and drug/free life.

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 Third Avenue Clinic/San Diego Treatment Services, 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 2012, younger adults placed into jail (ages 18 – 24) were a lot more likely to test positive for opiates (14%), compared to those adults aged 25 to 39 (12%) and 40 and above (8%). This illustrates the increasingly problematic situation of opiate abuse. Our facility is dedicated to helping your loved ones overcome this problem. Let your recovery start today.
