Methadone is a prescription medication that contains a long-acting opioid (narcotic) pain medication. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain in people that don’t respond to non-narcotic pain medicines. It is also use to control withdrawal symptoms in people being treated for narcotic drug addiction. Although methadone belongs to the same group of drugs as heroin and morphine, it acts differently in the body and is helpful in treating addiction. This is because it helps in eliminating the cravings addicts experience during withdrawal.
