3 Tips To Find The Best Methadone Clinic

Find the best methadone clinic


The first step to recovery from opioid addiction involves finding the right methadone clinic. Here, we discuss steps to take and what to look for in a methadone doctor when making this important decision.


Before beginning the search for a clinic, consider what you want out of your treatment. Every Methadone Clinic has different treatment approaches and qualifications. Ask yourself questions like:

  • What times would work as ideal appointment times?
  • How can a doctor work with your personality to give you the best treatment?
  • Do you feel more comfortable with a care team who can speak a language besides English?
  • What kinds of doctors work best for you?


Methadone Clinics require you to visit every day during the initial stages. You will go to your clinic to receive methadone and participate in individualized care activities, like counseling. Treatment centers offer different hours, so find times that best fit your schedule. Since you have to visit the clinic every day, you will probably want a clinic close to your home or work.

As you look for a methadone doctor, create a list of options that could work for your schedule and preferences. Make notes for each one about their hours, location and other factors that matter to you, such as accepting Medicaid or insurance. Then, you can compare your choices to see which ones have the most benefits.


Reputable medical professionals will give you the best treatment experience during recovery. You can determine a treatment center’s qualifications by asking questions such as:

  • How many years of operation does the clinic have?
  • Does the treatment center have accreditations?
  • How many patients does the treatment center serve?
  • What qualifications, education and experience do the clinic’s providers have?


When you research a clinic online, you can find patient reviews on the clinic’s website as well as review sites. Online reviews let patients provide their honest opinions about their experiences with a clinic. These reviews can give you firsthand information on details that matter to you.

Understand Each Clinic’s Treatment Approach

Every methadone treatment center has a different service approach and values. As you learn about a clinic and its services, keep these questions in mind:

  • Does the clinic adjust treatment plans as your needs change?
  • What kind of language does the clinic use when mentioning patients?
  • Does the treatment have services geared toward certain patients?

When i first came to this program I thought the standards were to strict, but I have learned that this program was... giving me tool',s that will aid me in becoming more proficient in my career. My counselor Esther and the staff has continued to invest in the lives of individuals that comes through this program. Sometimes their job seems thankless because addicts are often confused about being helped and being hindered. But I would like to say that I thank God for them, and I pray that they know that they more

I owe my life to this clinic and those who work there. They gave me boundaries when I needed them, and gave me... freedoms when that was what I needed to grow. The Women's Group that met weekly gave me a real sense of belonging as well as new friends. The Clinical Manager is the best Therapist I've ever worked with. The receptionist is kind and caring. The Nursing Staff all worked hard to help us in any way they could. I've been gone from Open Armms about three years now and I've remained sober (with a very small dose of Methadone to treat cancer and other medical conditions, taken daily). Living sober just keeps getting better and better every day. Although I have a very aggressive form of cancer, I've not had a need for more narcotics! Wish I was still there. They were my family!❤️read more

You should never judge a drug addict. Pray for them. Be there when they need you. Placing bad reviews and calling up... the place trying to get your loved one in trouble so they won't have anywhere else to go but the streets isn't the right way. I love my boyfriend very much and know he is suffering. Thank you Open Armms for not giving more

Great clinic. Great counsellors and nursing staff. I don't know what the hell the top comment from that lady Shannon is... ranting about it isn't their job to get anyone clean that responsibility falls on you and you alone. If he's saving pee that's his own dishonest behavior and well first thing you have to do to get clean is get honest (with yourself) so don't blame them they will always be there to assist when he is ready if he's ready. On the flip side if he's using it just to get well in the morning then it's working exactly the way he is looking for it to. None of this is my business of course but it's co dependent people like that who are extremely harmful to any addicts recovery (blame everyone but the person who did this to themselves).read more

This place is terrible. If you're genuinely looking to get sober and completely off drugs this is not the place for... you. My brother has a terrible addiction to pills. He's been going to this clinic for 5+ years and they have not made any effort to completely get him off of the methadone. I don't think any place designed to get you off of drugs should be allowed to give you methadone for longer than a year let alone 5. People in his groups told him that if he drinks red bull with the liquid methadone they give him it prolongs the effects and gives you more of a high from it. So guess what he's started drinking every day? The people at the methadone clinic are either to dumb to catch on or they know and they enable it. All this place is is a legal drug dealer. This place should be shut down! They don't help my brother at all. They legally provide him with drugs that, whether they want to acknowledge or not, he gets high with. They have no plan to get him off of the drugs, they would prefer to keep getting the money he gives them every day. They have no plans to help him become an actual functioning member of society like GOOD, REPUTABLE rehabs do, they want him to stay on the methadone. They can piss test him all they want. He pees clean a certain time of the month, saves that pee and uses that when they test him, and they still haven't caught on! Don't go here!read more
