Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Methadone has been used to help people caught in the web of drug addiction to stop. Yet, some physicians prescribe methadone to patients who, without proper guidance and supervision, will overuse this medication. The results are not pretty.
Recovery Associates is a drug treatment center that is now focusing their efforts on helping people addicted to Methadone recover. Recovery Associates new methadone addiction treatment program is geared towards helping addicts get clean and develop the life skills to live free from the deadly addiction they had to methadone.
According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, methadone is commonly prescribed for chronic problems like back pain even though it might not help these problems in the long run. More than 4 million methadone prescriptions were written for pain in 2009, despite U.S. Food and Drug Administration warnings about the risks associated with methadone. Methadone is available as a low-cost generic drug. It is often listed as a preferred drug by insurance companies.

The risks involving methadone are heavy. One study indicated four in 10 overdose deaths involving single prescription painkillers involved methadone, twice as many as any other prescription painkiller. Taking it more than three times per day can cause methadone to build up in a person’s body, leading to dangerously slower breathing. Methadone can seriously disrupt the heart’s rhythm. Methadone can be risky when used with tranquilizers or other prescription drugs.
