Methadone maintenance has been an effective form of opioid treatment for over 40 years, and the recent opioid epidemic has significantly increased its popularity as a treatment option.
Access to methadone maintenance, now part of medication-assisted treatment (MAT), has expanded significantly in Ohio's opioid epidemic. Methadone is one of two opioid medications that can be used to help addicted individuals avoid serious opioid withdrawal and cravings in early abstinence.
Methadone is a long-acting opioid that is highly regulated and can only be prescribed and dispensed by certified and authorized opioid treatment providers (OTPs). Although methadone maintenance is an effective long-term treatment for opioid addiction, it is not the only part of a treatment program, as taking the medication requires involvement in addiction counseling or rehab.
Methadone through MAT is not available at every Ohio rehab, so it is necessary to confirm OTP status with any rehab or private practitioner if you are looking for methadone maintenance as part of a medication-assisted treatment program. Some Ohio rehabs may support methadone in MAT but lack the OTP certification.
Use the filter function in the directory to search for Ohio rehabs that are certified as opioid treatment providers. Only OTP rehabs that are certified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration can provide medication-assisted treatment for the duration of the time it is needed in your recovery. Ohio methadone maintenance rehabs are growing in numbers throughout the state and can be found by filtering your search.
