GCASA's Opioid Treatment Program

Methadone treatment is for individuals with an addiction to opioid drugs, such as heroin or prescription pain medication.  When taken as prescribed, it is safe and effective. It allows people to recover from their addiction and to reclaim active and meaningful lives. Methadone works by changing how the brain and nervous system respond to pain.  It lessens the painful symptoms of opioid withdrawal and blocks the euphoric effects of opioid drugs. 

GCASA will administer doses of methadone to patients in a liquid form as prescribed by our medical staff.  The medication will be part of a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include counseling.  GCASA’s Opioid Treatment Program will be highly regulated by state and federal laws, providing a very safe and secure environment.
