Drug Addiction Facts

  • Individuals taking part in methadone maintenance programs who intend to get high from their methadone dose will abstain from taking a dose or two, and then take an extremely large dose all at once to get a much stronger high from the drug.
  • Methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours, but only provides pain relief for up to 8 hours. Patients may need more pain relief before the drug is cleared from the body, and therefore administer another dose too soon resulting in toxic levels of the drug in the system which can lead to life-threatening changes in breathing and heart function.
  • Research indicates that exposure to high doses of Ecstasy for 4 days can produce brain damage that can still be seen 6 to 7 years later.
