Methadone clinics are established for the dispensing of medication for medically assisted opioid use disorder but some methadone clinics in Georgia may provide additional social and medical services. Methadone is an opioid agonist that blunts the painful symptoms of opioid withdrawal. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Although it is safe, it may have some side effects. It should only be taken in compliance with the recommendations of a medication-assisted treatment specialist. Doses of methadone are tailored for individuals. They should not be shared. The practitioner dispenses doses after closely observing the program enrollee. The doses are usually reduced but there are cases they have to be increased. Maintenance could go on for several years. In some cases, it could be indefinitely. Methadone is at the risk of being diverted to the illicit market, therefore, it is highly regulated.
