Methadone and Suboxone are useful tools for an opiate addict. It alleviates withdrawal symptoms, decreases cravings, and blocks euphoria if someone takes an opiate on top of it. When methadone is sold or given to someone for whom it is not prescribed, it is dangerous. Methadone is a federally controlled substance that is highly regulated. If you know of someone who is selling their prescription of methadone, please contact a methadone authority. Your report could save a life.
