Methadone Treatment at CADS

April 4, 2018

The opioid crisis that is currently plaguing our country is shedding light on the dangerous effects of drug abuse. If you know someone who needs help recovering from addiction, help them find the help they need. 

At CADS, our priority is the health and wellness of those who need help battling substance abuse. We offer a variety of treatment services and always perform a thorough assessment before making an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. You can learn more about how that happens in our blog.

One of the treatments we offer at CADS is outpatient Methadone treatment. Here’s what you need to know about this kind of treatment.

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, Methadone is an integral part of opioid addiction treatment. It works by changing how the brain and nervous system respond and helps people recover from their addiction and reclaim their lives.

However, Methadone treatment is just one piece of a comprehensive treatment program.

How do we use it at CADS? Methadone medication is provided as an adjunct to substance abuse treatment. Clients are admitted to treatment by a physician after an assessment process determines the appropriateness for such care.

Methadone is offered in pill, liquid, and wafer forms and should be taken once a day for a minimum of 12 months. A physician will determine a treatment schedule for each individual.

As a caring loved one, it’s important to be supportive during the rehabilitation and treatment process. What does it mean to support? Read more about it on our blog.
