What You Need to Know About Methadone Maintenance

In the United States, roughly 980,000 people are addicted to opiates such as heroin, Oxycontin and morphine.

Methadone is a synthetic opiate that mimics the effect that heroin, morphine and other opiates have on certain receptors in the brain. It essentially works by blocking the sedating and euphoric effects of opiates. It also helps to eliminate the cravings that are so strongly associated with opiate addiction, which plays a huge role in determining whether a patient will make it through opiate withdrawal or will suffer a relapse.
