Medication Assistance Program (MAP)

Methadone is a synthetic opioid used to treat individuals suffering from opioid addiction in a safe and controlled manner. Methadone controls withdrawal symptoms and prevents opioid abuse. Patients in the Medication Assistance Program receive a blocking dose of the synthetic opioid which curbs cravings from heroin.

MAP services are offered in conjunction with the Addiction Individual and Group Counseling Individual treatment plans developed to address all of the patients individual needs.
