Methadone: A form of opiod medication taken by mouth or via injection and often used to treat clients detoxing or trying to remain completely abstinent from stronger type of opiods. It is also sometimes prescribed as a painkiller in itself. Considered a “maintenance medication” for opioid dependency, the use of methadone and similar drugs like Suboxone as a form of medication-assisted treatment is a controversial topic in most treatment discussions.
