Methadone abuse is a problem that is due to an individual using methadone in risky situations without regard for the physical health of themselves or others around them.  This problem is not the same as a methadone addiction, but it does pose many of the same side effects as a methadone addiction does.  People constantly worry that someone they care for may be suffering from a methadone addiction if they are abusing their prescriptions or seem high on methadone all the time, but sometimes these individuals are actually only suffering from abuse.

Signs of Methadone Abuse

Methadone AbuseTo determine if someone you care for is in fact, living with a methadone abuse problem as opposed to a methadone addiction problem, use the following side effects as a guide line for your determination.

Are they:

  • Having trouble with the law because of their methadone use?
  • Driving while under the influence of methadone?
  • Acting violent in public situations or even at home?
  • Using large doses of methadone with no concern for an overdose?
  • Have they overdosed on methadone?
  • Doing things that may hurt themselves or others?
  • Are they choosing to get high on methadone on a daily basis?

Identifying if there is an actual methadone abuse problem is the first step in helping your loved one get the help that they need.

The next steps that you need to do in order to get your loved one recovered from their abuse are:

  • 1. Contact your local methadone abuse clinic.
  • 2. Communicate with your loved one and let them know treatment is not an option, but is a demand from you.
  • 3. Get them into treatment for their methadone abuse at all cost.
