METHADONE MAINTENANCE TREATMENT
Safe, Effective, and Affordable
Under careful monitoring by medical professionals, methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) is safe, effective, and affordable.
When Employed to Treat Opiate Addiction, Methadone Performs 3 Functions:
Every one of these functions is integral to the recovery process.
- Prevents the symptoms of withdrawal
- Eliminates cravings
- Prevents the client from experiencing a high in the event that he/she uses another opiate during treatment.
MMT, the Most Widely Accepted and Best-Studied Treatment for Opioid Dependence, Has Been Shown to Reduce:
- Addiction related morbidity and mortality
- Societal costs associated with drug-related crimes
- Spread of blood-borne diseases such as HIV
Long-Term MMT Treatment Works!
Long-term MMT has been shown to be more effective than short-term or non-agonist-based treatments, and a high rate of relapse to opioid use has been found when MMT is discontinued too soon.

This place is saving lives. I have a better quality of life.
This place has not only saved my life, but my family’s lives. It brings families together.
In the time I have spent going to MTC I have strengthened my marriage and my relationship with my son and family. I think back to before I came and wonder how I lived through the trauma I put my body through with drugs. Now my favorite time of the week is seeing my counselor. I believe it is a big part of my recovery. I thank God for the second chance and a place where I could go for help and people understand my situation.
I would like to take a moment to tell you a story that would probably sound very familiar about how I ended up here. My life like many others has always been hard, I grew up in a broken family, thought I knew everything, thought I could handle anything, thought that would never be me, I have it all together…Right?? With that being said, I am a addict…yes, I am a addict. It has been a long road to come to grips with that, but once I decided I had enough and I realized I couldn’t do it by myself, I looked and found help here at MTC! I was very reluctant at first, you know all the hype about these methadone programs, but I am a living testament that if you follow the rules and take your recovery seriously, this will work! Having a good relationship with my counselor, I took all the steps necessary to become the me I know I can be! This program saved my life! If you want long term recovery, this is where it’s at. It doesn’t matter where you go after you leave the program or who your counselor is in the program, if you’re ready and you take with you all the knowledge…you will succeed!
When you finally make the choice to chance, MTC is kind and respectful. They can help you accomplish your goals.
