The ultimate goal of treatment at Woodstock Treatment Center is for the patient to live a happy and drug free lifestyle through appropriate substance abuse counseling and rehabilitation. Physiological dependence upon opiates, which includes heroin, painkillers, and other opiate-based medications, is a disease that responds very well to medication-assisted treatment (Methadone). Opioid dependency is recognized as a medical disease. Ongoing research demonstrates that it can take several years for the brain to satisfactorily recover from excessive drug use and abuse. One of the safest treatment methods for long-lasting long term recovery is participating in a MMT Methadone Maintenance Treatment program.
Benefits of Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)
Breaking the cycle of opiate abuse and/or opiate addiction is made easier with medication-assisted treatment. Advances in science has- made this process much safer, less painful and more successful. During the past 30 years, many opiate addiction recovery programs have had great success with a medication called methadone, which has helped tens of thousands of formerly addicted men and women overcome the addiction to opiates such as heroin, OxyContin (oxycodone) and Vicodin (hydrocodone).
Of course, the first step on the path back from opiate addiction is recognizing the extent of the problem and selecting the treatment center that best meets your unique needs.
Methadone Treatment Facts:
Methadone has been described by the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) as "rigorously well-tested" and "safe and efficacious" for individuals who are being treated for opiate addiction.

Methadone for Opiate Addictions:
Methadone is a safe and effective treatment for narcotic withdrawal and addiction to opiates such as heroin and morphine. A synthetic narcotic that has been used for more than 30 years to treat opioid addiction, methadone has been rigorously tested and proven effective by scientific research. Methadone clinics typically dispense methadone for short- or long-term detox from the following addictions:
In addition to being safe when taken as part of an approved and properly supervised addiction recovery program, methadone offers a range of benefits to individuals who may have otherwise been incapable of overcoming addictions to Heroin, Oxycodone (OxyContin), Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and other opiates.
As enumerated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the benefits of methadone treatment include the following:
- Reduced mortality (the median death rate of opiate-dependent individuals in methadone maintenance treatment is 30 percent of the rate of those not in MMT)
- Reduced risk of overdose.
- Reduced risk of acquiring or transmitting diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B or C.
- Reduced criminal activity.
- Improved family stability.
- Enhanced employment potential.
- Improved outcomes for pregnant women and their children.
An added benefit of methadone is that it blocks the effects of other opiates. Since methadone occupies the opiate receptor sites for an extended period of time, using other opiates becomes pointless because there are no available opiate receptors to be activated. This "blocking" effect is most effective once a client is on a stable methadone dose, and is one of the main benefits of methadone maintenance treatment (MMT).
