Is Methadone Treatment Right for You?

Beginning MMT can help stabilize and improve your health and can move you towards getting the care you need.

  • Have you been through detoxification and found you couldn't feel normal?
    MMT can allow you to regain a sense of normalcy.
  • Have you been using opioids such as heroin, codeine, or oxycodone but can't seem to stop?
    MMT can help you quit using those drugs and focus on your life.
  • Are you pregnant and still using?
    MMT can help prevent miscarriage and protect your baby from life-threatening withdrawal.
  • Have you tested positive for HIV or Hepatitis C?
    MMT can allow you to regain your quality of life and begin essential treatment of your viral infection. If you have not tested positive, MMT can help you stop using needles, which is the primary route of infection for drug users.
