Wheaton is a suburban city and the county seat of DuPage County, Illinois. It is situated roughly about 25 miles from Chicago. According to the 2010 census, Wheaton had a total population of 52,894, which decreased to 52,745 by 2019. Contrary to the decrease in the city’s population, there was an increase in people suffering from opioid use disorder. This is a widespread problem and methadone clinics in Illinois were established to help those in need of treatment. Methadone has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and used for decades for the purpose of treating opioid addiction. Doses of methadone should be taken carefully and should never be shared. Of course, patients are not allowed to take them home and the personnel of the Wheaton methadone clinic has been trained to administer the medication safely. The patient’s strong will to overcome this addiction accompanied by support from friends and family members can lead to full recovery. Some patients recover in a short time, while others could spend years in recovery.
