Frequently Asked Questions

Methadone is used to treat opiate addiction and to relieve withdrawal symptoms. It is not used to treat addictions to substances like alcohol, marijuana or cocaine. Methadone reduces the drug cravings and harsh withdrawal symptoms. Methadone’s effects last between 24 and 36 hours.

When administered at a proper dose by a licensed professional, methadone will not make you high.

Buprenorphine, commonly known as Subutex® or Suboxone®, offers a more flexible form of medication-assisted treatment. Unlike methadone, buprenorphine has a ceiling effect, which prevents people from misusing it since it doesn’t allow people to feel any euphoric effects.

Suboxone® is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone (also known as Narcan®). Naloxone is used to counter the effects of an opiate overdose as well prevent euphoric feelings associated with opiate use.
