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.
