Facts

  • The number of methadone overdoses has recently escalated in the United States within the past several years, with nearly 4,000 people dying from a methadone-related overdose in 2005.
  • The excessive release of dopamine and stimulation of the brain and central nervous system's natural reward system as a result of opiate use is what leads to addiction.
  • Physical dependence and withdrawal symptoms are known to develop after only five days of the administration of Morphine.
  • One option that is sometimes used to avoid opiate withdrawal is to replace the individual's drug of choice with methadone, a long-acting, cross-tolerant opiate that does not normally produce a "high."
