Methadone is one of the most commonly used medications in the long-term treatment of heroin and opioid addiction.
Although the advent of newer medications like Suboxone and Vivitrol have lessened the demand for methadone treatment over the years, it remains a standard in helping patients reduce cravings and ease the lingering withdrawal symptoms associated with long-term opioid recovery.
Unfortunately, it can be addictive on its own and requires responsible, professional and honest source dosage and administration.
Methadone maintenance rehabs are treatment centers that either offers methadone maintenance on premises or partner with a methadone clinic and offer behavioral rehab as well.
The eligibility requirements for methadone maintenance rehab include present physical addiction to opioids and a history of addiction one year or greater.
Patients can get approved with a document from their physician outlining the scope and history of their opioid abuse.
Other forms of documentation can include a legal abstract outlining the applicant’s opioid-related criminal offenses or a certified letter from a loved one or clergy.
It’s important to realize that methadone is not meant to replace any aspect of treatment, such as behavioral rehab or 12-step meetings.
