How do I know if methadone is right for me?

Methadone is prescribed for the treatment of opioid addiction. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), methadone provides relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for continued opioid use. When taken as prescribed, methadone is safe and effective for use. This medication allows patients to focus on their recovery and to perform daily activities in an unimpaired manner.

There are multiple medications available for the treatment of opioid addiction, so patients at Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers should work closely with their treatment team to determine the appropriate prescription medication based upon their individual needs.

Can I become addicted to methadone?

Methadone does have addictive properties, but when taken as prescribed, the risk of developing an addiction is minimal. The staff at Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers works closely with patients to monitor the administering of all medications, minimizing the chances of abuse and addiction.

Will methadone show up on a drug screening?

Methadone will not cause a patient to test positive on a standard drug screen, as a specific test is required in order to detect methadone in the system. A drug screen will, however, detect the presence of opioids or other illegal substances.

How long will I need to be on methadone?

Methadone is approved for both long- and short-term use, so patients can remain on this medication as long as necessary. Patients should work closely with their treatment providers to determine the appropriate length of time to stay on this medication.

Does methadone interact with other drugs or medications?

Methadone can negatively interact with other substances, so patients should notify their treatment providers of any over-the-counter or prescription medications they are taking prior to incorporating methadone into their treatment plan. Patients should not use alcohol and/or opioids while taking methadone because of the dangerous interactions that can occur.

What if I no longer wish to take methadone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Patients who no longer wish to take methadone should work closely with their treatment providers so that they can gradually taper off of the medication. When a patient abruptly stops using methadone, they put themselves at increased risk for developing withdrawal symptoms. Once methadone is completely out of a patient’s system, they can transition to a different medication or continue treatment without the assistance of medication.

What is the cost for methadone treatment?

Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers provide patients with customized treatment plans to meet their unique goals and requirements. The final cost of treatment will vary depending upon the therapeutic interventions utilized and the medications prescribed.
