Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter.
