ECD Program - a caring solution for your recovery needs.
ECD Programs strives to offer recovering drug addicts the ability to control their addiction by using methadone treatment.
There are many effective treatments for opiate-based addiction.  The kind of treatment depends on the individual.  Methadone blocks the effects and suppresses withdrawal symptoms of opiates including but not limited to: Morphine - Dilaudid - Percocet - Codeine - Hydrocodone - Lortab - OxyContin - Demerol - Lorcet - Heroin.
Methadone has been an effective treatment for opiate addiction for over 30 years. It is taken orally and suppresses cravings and withdrawal symptoms for 24 to 36 hours.  Methadone is taken daily and is medically safe, even after years of treatment.  Combined with our on site counseling and support it enables patients to stop taking opiate drugs and return to a normal productive life.

What is Methadone? 
Methadone is not a cure for opiate addiction, but a tool that suppresses withdrawal symptoms, and lessens craving for narcotics. When coupled with therapy, methadone facilitates those interpersonal interactions involved in strengthening motivations, changing lifestyle, and breaking the cycle of patterns and stress reactions underlying relapse. Methadone can also chemically block the physical cravings of opiate drugs. Methadone does not produce or mimic the euphoric "high" when taken in a controlled dose subscribed by a qualified physician. Methadone also blocks the receptors in the brain that are effected by opiates, which means that if a person uses an opiate drug while on methadone the narcotic produces little or no effect.  
Services are provided to adults 18 years of age or older, with at least 1 year of opiate or prescription pain medication addiction.
