Methadone Treatment & Support
Methadone is useful in the treatment of opioid dependence. Oral doses of methadone can stabilize patients by reducing opioid withdrawal symptoms. Higher doses of methadone can block the euphoric effects of heroin, morphine, and similar drugs. As a result, properly dosed methadone patients can reduce or stop altogether their use of these substances.
Methadone treatment is available from the Ontario Addiction Treatment Centre (OATC), with Methadone Case Management and support being made available by Stonehenge Therapeutic Community.
