Methadone: What you need to know

Methadone is a complex medication, and methadone dispensing is strictly controlled by law. 

If you are taking methadone or are interested in finding out more about methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) for treating an addiction, please speak to your physician or pharmacist. Please be aware that not all pharmacists dispense methadone.
