What is Methadone?


Methadone is a synthetic opioid that blocks the effects of heroin and prescription drugs containing opiates. Used successfully for more than 40 years, methadone has been shown to successfully assist in recovering from opiate addiction.

Methadone works by "occupying" the brain receptor sites affected by heroin and other opiates. The benefits of methadone treatment include:

• blocking of the euphoric and sedating effects of opiates

• relieving the craving for opiates that is a major factor in relapse

• relieving symptoms associated with withdrawal from opiates

• does not cause euphoria or intoxication itself (with stable dosing), thus allowing a person to     work and participate normally in society

• is excreted slowly so it can be taken only once a day

Methadone maintenance treatment, a program in which addicted individuals receive daily doses of methadone, was initially developed during the 1960s as part of a broad, multicomponent treatment program that also emphasized resocialization and vocational training.
