Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board


I don't mean to be a pessimist, but it seems like he has a very long history with addiction and will need some serious intervention. This is going to take much more than meetings. I'm not an addiction specialist by any means, but I think he's a perfect candidate for long term methadone treatment, especially if he has some legitimate pain.

What do you think Reach, since you are the resident expert?

If he won't get some serious treatment, you may want to re-evaluate your relationship, because more than likely, this will continue indefinitely. Getting out sooner (than later) may be more advantageous.

He needs to "want" treatment....And, it sounds as if he is far from it. Again, methadone may be a good solution....Not sure.

Good luck, and I hope things work out for you.
