The Reasons America Needs Better Methadone Detox Programs

There are a number of reasons we need expanded and improved methadone detox programs in America:

  • There has been a sharp increase in the past decade of methadone prescriptions to treat chronic pain.
  • Because of its highly addictive nature, thousands of Americans are now becoming dependent on methadone who were only trying to treat their pain.
  • Methadone dependence frequently leads to methadone abuse and methadone addiction, which is always followed by upset or even ruined lives.
  • Methadone continues to be widely used (and abused) in what are called “methadone treatment” programs for opioids such as heroin.
  • Methadone treatment” doesn’t treat anything, it is just another nail in the coffin for opioid addicts because it prolongs addiction and is even worse to get off than heroin.
  • “Methadone treatment” patients develop a tolerance for methadone over time, so they must take higher and higher daily doses of methadone just to feel normal.
  • The final nail in the “methadone treatment” coffin: Most detox centers in America do not accept high-dose methadone patients, so methadone addiction can continue for a lifetime.

Methadone Detox Could Prevent Unintentional Poisoning Deaths

The American Journal of Preventive Medicine study found:

  • Unintentional poisoning is now the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths in the U.S.
  • Unintentional drug-poisoning deaths increased 68% between 1999 and 2004, and the majority of the increase has been attributed to deaths associated with prescription opioids such as methadone.
  • In 2005, unintentional poisoning surpassed motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for people 35 to 54.
  • Unintentional poisoning deaths have been on the rise for more than 15 years.

Since the largest percentage increase in hospitalizations occurred among methadone users and abusers, a timely and effective Novus methadone detox program could save countless lives.
