In Union County, New Jersey, the city of Plainfield has a population of 50,317, and was settled in 1684 by the Quakers. Many of today’s residents of Plainfield are seeking addiction treatment from a methadone clinic in Plainfield NJ. All methadone clinics in New Jersey are staffed by trained medical professionals who monitor patients closely to figure out the appropriate dose for each patient, and to help patients determine when might be the right time to slowly taper off the drug. Whenever this time may turn out to be, it should not come before at least one year to get the best recovery results. To make the kinds of internal and external changes that can truly support a life free of active addiction takes time, and rushing off of methadone can cut that time short, making a person vulnerable to relapse before they have a solid, supportive structure in place to keep them on track.
