Methadone treatment is used for opioid dependence and works to relieve withdrawal symptoms and to reduce cravings
Opioid dependence is a complex disorder that is an important issue worldwide. Opioid use and misuse are on the rise in Canada, so the need for treatment options has never been more crucial. Effective treatment for opioid dependence requires a well functioning treatment team which may consist of a physician, pharmacist, nurse and counsellor/therapist/case worker.
Since pharmacists often have the most contact with patients, they are in an ideal position to have a real and positive impact on patient outcomes. They can offer encouragement, support and motivation as a patient progresses through treatment.
Here at Pharmasave Elsipogtog we are happy to be able to provide an optimal environment to administer methadone and play a positive part in the treatment process
