Attleboro, Massachusetts has a population of a little over 45,200 and is in Bristol County, which was created in 1685 by the Plymouth Colony. An Attleboro methadone clinic is convenient to the residents of Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, as well as the surrounding communities. All methadone clinics in Massachusetts are required to be accredited by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration. Clinics must also register with the Drug Enforcement Administration, as methadone is a schedule II-controlled narcotic. When used appropriately, methadone is a life-saving medication, relieving intense drug cravings and debilitating withdrawal symptoms that might otherwise trigger a dangerous relapse into opioid use. Methadone also blunts or dulls the effects of opioids, making drug use less desirable. Medication-Assisted Treatment, which is when methadone maintenance therapy is combined with behavioral therapy and counseling, is widely regarded as the gold standard of rehabilitation approaches for people struggling with opioid use disorder.
