Metadone dependence

Metadone dependence

Methadone is a highly addictive, potent opium. Typically, methadone addiction develops as a result of the use of street drugs or pharmaceutical analogues in specialized medical centers known as substitution therapy.

Some addicts purposefully use this drug for use or for self-replacement of a more expensive drug – heroin. The result is only the use of one drug instead of another, with the subsequent aggravation of the condition – the patient needs compulsory treatment of dependence on methadone.

Treatment of methadone dependence

Treatment of methadone addiction, as well as addiction to other strong narcotic drugs, must be carried out in a hospital setting, under the round-the-clock supervision of qualified specialists who have the ability to both control the process and make timely adjustments to the treatment regimen, depending on current results.

    How to understand that a person is using methadone – signs of use

    As a rule, the signs of methadone use do not differ much from the signs of the use of other drugs. It is possible to suspect a person of using a substance if: the eyes have redness, a dilated or narrowed pupil, the skin has a pale tint, coordination and sleep are disturbed, there are sharp changes in behavior, accompanied by rapid mood swings, memory impairment, appetite, inadequate reaction during communication, chronic cough, constant need for money.

    If these signs are found, you should immediately contact a specialist for diagnosis, testing for the presence of a drug in the body and subsequent treatment of methadone addiction.
