Meth, Heroin Addiction

Hey, it's Cheyenne. We've had many questions about overcoming substance addiction without using methadone. To some, methadone is using a drug to treat a drug addiction, and some find it very addictive.

There are many treatment options available, such as residential treatment and group support. Many relapse after they leave the controlled environment of residential treatment. Others fail with group support because sometimes you can't talk yourself out of an addiction. There are physiological aspects that need to be addressed.
