Studies show that 70% of patients who participate in treatment for over 12 months no longer abuse heroin or other opiates.

How Long Does Treatment Take?
There is no specific length of time in a medication assisted treatment program that is best for everyone. The longer you stay in treatment, the greater your chances for success. Some people use medication their entire life. Other people decide to try a completely drug-free approach once their lives become stable.
Discuss this with the clinic staff, so they can plan an appropriate treatment program tailored to your needs. Never cut back on your dose or stop taking methadone on your own, or you may experience withdrawal symptoms and drug craving, leading to relapse.
