Methadone is commonly used in Opiate Replacement Therapy (ORT), which is the act of using much weaker opioids to satisfy the brain’s needs as it gradually adjusts to returning to life without the stronger opioid. This is unique in the sense that a potentially addictive drug is used to help curb addictions.
Treatment for methadone addiction is similar to other opioids, and not as intense. A user has many options such as inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. Withdrawal symptoms still occur, so it is highly recommended one seeks help from a professional when attempting to recover from methadone abuse.
