What is Methadone? (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration)

Methadone maintenance treatment stands as a medically acknowledged pharmacotherapeutic approach, considered the benchmark for opioid addiction treatment when complemented with counseling and other psychosocial aids.

Methadone, a prolonged-acting opioid, effectively curbs cravings and mitigates withdrawal symptoms, reducing the likelihood of individuals resorting to hazardous or illicit activities to feed their addiction.

Despite its comparative safety to other narcotics, it is crucial for your physician to closely monitor your methadone intake due to the potential for addiction or misuse. It should be emphasized that methadone is merely one component of a comprehensive treatment plan and does not constitute a cure for addiction.
