What is Methadone
Methadone is a drug that is designed for the treatment of opiate addiction, and sometimes prescribed as pain relief.
Methadone programs are used strictly for opioid-related addiction.
This does not assist in cocaine and cannabis addictions.
Methadone is still a highly addictive substance designed to be tapered down in doses to assist those addicted to opiates. If misused or consumed by someone other than the prescribed patient; methadone can also result in a fatal overdose.
ALWAYS follow the direction and discretion of your treatment provider.
