Methadone clinics are offices where there are medical staff who administer the drug Methadone to those trying to recover from drugs. Methadone is often prescribed as a means of replacing drugs ike herion, oxycontin, oxycodone and other very addictive opiate based drugs with a legal alternative controlled by medical staff. Methadone is highly addictive but is legal to prescribe, it greatly curbs the agonizing withdrawal symptoms that accompany coming off of or quitting opiate and other type drugs. By using methadone it is postulated that the addict will be in less harm as there is no needle to infect the person and the drug is legal so they are not breaking the law and the dosage is regulated so that the person will ideally not overdose.

In actual practice there are many issues that need to be considered before committing to a methadone protocol. The danger of mixing methadone and other drugs is severe. The difficulty in ceasing the use of methadone is even more severe for many than heroin or other opiates. An lastly, methadone must be administered through the clinic to be legal so a person is tied to the clinic hours and regulations.
