An Accredited methadone maintenance Program for Individuals with Vicodin, Codeine, Heroin, and Other Opioid Dependencies

methadone maintenanceMethadone maintenance is a form of medication-assisted treatment used to help individuals recover from an opioid addiction. At MedMark Treatment Centers, our outpatient clinics provide comprehensive opiate addiction treatment plans that include methadone maintenance, substance abuse counseling, and other services to support our patients through the recovery process. Our evidence-based treatment program is tailored to suit the individual needs of each of our patients and is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Methadone is a medication that has been shown to be highly effective in helping individuals overcome addiction to pain pills or heroin. As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, methadone maintenance is beneficial for patients because it:

• Helps patients stabilize when starting a treatment program
• Reduces the effects of withdrawal associated with stopping opiate use
• Helps prevent drug cravings and the possibility of a relapse
• Does not produce a “high” or euphoric effects, so patients maintain control of their thoughts and behaviors
• Helps patients persist through the treatment program

Methadone can only be prescribed by a physician, who considers a patient’s individual needs to determine dosage. Additionally, because methadone maintenance is part of a long-term opiate addiction treatment plan, it must be provided in conjunction with counseling services. Substance abuse counseling helps patients overcome the challenges they face on the pathway to recovery.

At MedMark Treatment Centers, our medication-assisted treatment program offers comprehensive support for patients by offering methadone maintenance, drug abuse counseling, and a range of other services that help patients overcome addiction.
