Methadone has drawn more scrutiny in recent years with an alarming increase in the number of overdoses and related deaths. Some states are seeking to regulate the drug and its clinics, such as a bill in West Virginia that proposes methadone treatment centers to report and track take-home doses of the drugs. Others are just now seeing the social problems attached to the drug, such as police officers in Maine who reported a number of automobile accidents caused by methadone patients nodding off at the wheel while driving.

While the long-term maintenance plan for methadone is to eventually wean off it over an approximate 18-month time period, the majority of methadone addicts actually increase their dosages due to further tolerance and wind up going into detox and rehabilitation programs after all.

One program that has offered drug-free rehabilitation methods for opiate addicts for decades is the Narconon program, which is based on research and developments by the late American author and humanitarian, L.

Rather than putting heroin and other opiate addicts on replacement drugs or having them withdraw completely “cold turkey,” the Narconon program uses nutritional and light physical therapies to help ease withdrawal symptoms in their social detoxification.
