Fort Lauderdale Hospital is one of the only treatment centers in the state of Florida that offers suboxone and methadone protocols.
Methadone is a synthetic opioid used medically and as a maintenance anti-addictive for use in patients with opioid dependency. Methadone acts on the same opioid receptors as drugs like morphine and heroin.
In certain extreme cases, methadone is used to manage chronic pain since it has a long duration of action, very powerful effects and can be obtained at a very low cost.
When used during the detox process, methadone has cross-tolerance with other opioids including heroin and morphine, offering similar effects making the detox process less painful.
