Another way provides comprehensive opioid use disorder treatment to adults aged 18 and over. We offer methadone maintenance as well as one-on-one therapy. Primary care services are also available. We provide evidence-based treatment that treats addiction’s underlying causes as well as manage withdrawal symptoms. Another Way may offer affordable primary care for community members or opioid treatment participants.
Another Way specializes in medication assisted treatment (MAT). A MAT program is a treatment that helps patients with opioid withdrawal symptoms and euphoria. These benefits help patients stay committed to their treatment. One-on-one counseling is also part of MAT. This helps patients understand their feelings and thoughts about opioids. Patients suffering from opioid addiction can lead safer, healthier lives if they receive MAT as part of their recovery process.
Our clinic offers MAT, which is a methadone-based medication that has proven its effectiveness over many years. Methadone does not have a “ceiling effect,” which means that it is not less effective if it is given a certain amount. Your doctor will be able to prescribe the right amount of methadone to treat your symptoms, regardless of their severity. Methadone treatment will help reduce symptoms for up to 24 hours.
Methadone MAT programs provide a structured start that encourages patients to stay on track with treatment. Patients are encouraged to visit the clinic every day in order to develop new recovery habits. Methadone MAT can be completed by someone who follows federal and state guidelines.
Therapy with an experienced counselor is part of the MAT model. The patient can talk about their addiction during opioid use disorder counseling. Patients may be suffering from underlying traumas, or have a mental illness that has an impact on their drug use. A treatment plan that focuses on coping skills and reintegration into society is beneficial for some patients. Your therapist and you will decide the best treatment options for your recovery.

Methadone, an opioid similar to heroin or opium, is also known as Methadone maintenance treatment. Methadone maintenance therapy has been used to treat opioid dependence in the 50s. An opioid, like heroin or opium, is taken daily as either a pill or liquid. This helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and opioid cravings.
Methadone, like other opioids, is addictive. Methadone does not make you dependent on heroin or other illegal opioids.
The patient is more comfortable taking methadone when they are under medical supervision than if they take heroin of unknown purity.
Methadone can be taken orally. Heroin injections are common, and can result in HIV transmission if needles or syringes get shared.
Many people who are heroin dependent spend a lot of their time trying and obtaining heroin. This could lead to criminal activity, such as stealing. Methadone patients do not have to do this. Instead, patients can engage in productive activities like education, employment, and parenting.
Methadone was added to the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. This highlights the importance of Methadone as a treatment for heroin dependence.
MMT has received a lot of research. Research has shown that MMT is highly effective.
MMT dramatically reduces drug injecting
because it reduces drug injecting, MMT reduces HIV transmission;
MMT reduces the death rate from opioid dependence by a significant amount
MMT decreases the criminal activity of opioid users;
Maximum effectiveness of methadone is achieved at doses greater than 60mg.
