Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program

A long-acting opiate replacement medication, Methadone relieves withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings while helping to normalize the body's functions. Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) is appropriate for people dealing with addiction to:

  • Oxycontin
  • Lortab
  • Percocet
  • Morphine
  • Heroin
  • Codeine
  • Vicodin
  • Ultram
  • Other Opiates

    Is Methadone Maintenance Treatment Right for You?

    Beginning MMT can help stabilize and improve your health and can move you toward getting the care you need. 

    • Have you been through detoxification and found you couldn't feel normal?
      MMT can allow you to regain a sense of normalcy.

    • Have you been using opioids such as heroin, codeine, or oxycodone but can't seem to stop?
      MMT can help you quit using those drugs and focus on your life.

    • Are you pregnant and still using?
      Seek MMT right away to prevent miscarriage and to protect your baby from life-threatening withdrawal.

    • Have you tested positive for HIV or Hepatitis C?
      MMT can allow you to regain your quality of life and begin essential treatment of your viral infection. If you have not tested positive, MMT can help you stop using needles, which is the primary route of infection for drug users.

    Treatment Tips

    • Methadone usually works best when it is taken once a day at the same time every day

    • It takes a few days to feel the effects of a dose adjustment

    • Taking other drugs may interfere with the adjustment of your dose

    • Taking more opioids won't get you high, but you could overdose

    • Hang in there - give it 2 to 6 weeks to find the right dose
