    Methadone Maintenance Treatment versus Rapid Opioid Detoxification Amber Dawn Phillips University of Phoenix The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that close to three million people in Europe and the US are addicted to some type of opiate, and in the US alone, over two million people are addicted to prescription opiates, and opiates make up 83 percent of admissions for intravenous drug addictions. This has given rise to many treatment methods to address opiate abuse. Two of those treatment methods are Methadone Maintenance Treatment or MMT and Rapid Opioid Detoxification ROD. While ROD is dangerous, and costly with few lasting results, Methadone Maintenance Treatment offers opiate addicts a safer, less expensive alternative with high success rates. While the argument persists that MMT programs are allowing the addict to trade one substance for another, the means of this justifies the end, and offers the addict a way out.…

Brief participants received one Two mg tablet of Buprenorphine sublingually each day for three days, which was later changed to five days when buprenorphine was approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid dependence (Katz et al., 2009, p. 65). Extended patients were gradually inducted on sublingual Suboxone (which contains a four to one ratio of Buprenorphine/Naloxone mixture) over a period of one week, where on day one participants received four mg of Suboxone and dose induction continued for three to seven days until patients achieved a blocking dose or a maximum dose of 16 mg (Katz et al., 2009, p. 65).
