What to Do If You’re Addicted to Methadone

Methadone is a synthetic opioid used as an analgesic and a maintenance drug for use in patients recovering from addiction to other opioids. Although methadone is used to wean addicts off of other drugs, it is addictive and can cause chemical dependency.

Where Do You Begin to Search for Methadone Addiction Help?

Many realize that they have an addiction program but do not know where to begin the search for help. Most turn first to the Internet which is a good source of information. However, with all of the good information, there is also a fare share of false or misleading information.

While the Internet is a great place to begin, you should only use it as a tool to help you get in touch with a trained and experienced individual who can talk to you about recovery. The only way to get all of the information you need is to talk one-on-one with a rehabilitation counselor.

Once on the phone with a counselor, feel free to address any concerns you may have about the recovery process and ask any questions you have. A counselor will be more than willing to supply you with all of the information you will need in order to make an informed decision about the next step in your recovery process. Addiction treatment should never be attempted alone. Throughout your recovery process you should reach out to anyone willing to help. The more people you have supporting you through the process the better your chances of beating methadone addiction.
