Where Can I Find Methadone Maintenance Treatment in My City?
Methadone maintenance treatment can be found in a licensed opioid treatment program, many of which exist all across the country. These programs, also called methadone clinics, dispense the medication to patients on a daily basis and also have a number of other treatment options for individuals who attend care there. But where and how can one find a methadone maintenance program in their city?
Use Our Directory
On our website, we have a comprehensive directory of methadone clinics, starting by state. Once you choose your state, choose the city or area closest to you, and you can find a list of the opioid treatment programs near you. Information about each facility is listed as well, including contact information so you can call the clinic and find out more from the staff. In addition, we have a separate directory for methadone doctors that works the same way.
If you are looking for local treatment or even to travel for care, you can find clinics and doctors in the area of your choice and find out more about them before making a decision. If you have any questions about the directory or would like help finding a methadone maintenance program that fits your needs, call 800-891-9360.
Talk to Your Physician
When you are trying to find a methadone clinic in your city, talking to your primary physician could be extremely helpful. Not only does this individual know your personal medical history, which can help them find a treatment program suitable to your needs, but they will likely also know of the clinics available in the area and which of them may be a good fit for you.
Go to an Outreach Center
Volunteers at outreach and community centers often have experience recommending addiction treatment to those in need, and the people working at these facilities will know the closest and most affordable programs in your area. In addition, you may want to visit places where local support groups are meeting and ask someone there if they know where the nearest methadone maintenance programs are.
Finding Methadone Maintenance Treatment
Finding a program like this isn’t hard when you know where to look and whom to ask for help. Reaching out to your friends and family during this time may also be necessary, as having this kind of support in searching for a program can make the task much easier. And while more programs like these are often found in urban areas, those in rural regions can also find methadone treatment programs close to them. One merely has to start looking.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Combined with behavioral therapies or counseling and other supportive services, methadone enables patients to stop using heroin (and other opiates) and return to more stable and productive lives.” If you would like to learn more about methadone treatment or find out about the programs in your area, call 800-891-9360 today.
