Methadone Replacement Therapy

Prairie Treatment Clinic

Methadone is an opioid prescribed by a Physician. Methadone has been used to manage opioid dependence for more than 40 years. Methadone is given in liquid form.

Both Methadone and Suboxone have been effective in treating opioid dependence because they generally do not make you feel high. Methadone and Suboxone are taken once per day. Once you are on a stable dose you should feel quite normal, with no drowsiness or withdrawal symptoms. This is because Methadone and Suboxone stay in your body longer than other opioids. Both are safe to use long-term.

Methadone and Suboxone Replacement Therapy require ongoing support and monitoring, including prescription management, medical follow-up, urine testing, counseling and treatment planning. The staff at Prairie Treatment Clinic are here to help.

Our team of physicians, registered nurses, pharmacists, counselors and administrative staff, work together to provide safe, supportive and confidential care for our patients.
