Methadone

Methadone is a synthetic opioid medication that is FDA approved to treat addiction. It works by binding the opiate receptors in your brain and is extremely effective at eliminating withdrawal symptoms like nausea and vomiting as well as cravings. It is the most extensively studied and used medication to treat addiction and is considered the best and safest treatment when prescribed by a doctor according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration).

Methadone is Ascent’s preferred method of treatment and is given by our trained staff of medical professionals initially to ensure your safety and effective results. After a short period of time, take-home doses can be given for your convenience. Some quick facts about methadone are:

  • 1 Lasts about 24 to 36 hours. This means that once an effective dose is found, you should remain withdrawal and craving free in between doses which helps prevent relapse.
  • 2 The long life of methadone allows your body time to repair and naturally correct the damage done to opiate receptors from addiction.
  • 3 It is the safest and preferred method in pregnancy even over buprenorphine-based therapy.
  • 4 Methadone is the best standard in addiction treatment according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration).

Suboxone and buprenorphine

Suboxone, or buprenorphine-based therapy is an effective option and acts similarly to methadone in that it eliminates withdrawal and cravings. During your initial consultation with our physician, you will discuss your needs and determine which treatment is right for you.
