Methadone is an approved medication-assisted treatment to assist people who are experiencing opioid use disorder. It is a requirement for all Methadone clinics in Texas to get accreditation from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Methadone is an agonist that reduces the craving of opioids. It is available in various forms like powder, liquid, and diskettes. Methadone, if used as prescribed, is not harmful to health. Often, maintenance goes on for a minimum of one year but some people may need long-term maintenance. In some cases, the treatment may go on for life. The medication is particularly tailored for individuals. The doses often change depending on what the practitioner observes, it is, therefore, wrong to share it with others. Based on the observation of the medication-assistant treatment practitioner, between visits, patients may be given the go-ahead to take methadone at home.
