Caption: Methadone & needles. Bottle containing the drug methadone and a measure of the drug in a beaker. Clean syringes are also seen. Methadone is opiate analgesic that can be substituted for opioid drugs such as heroin (diamorphine). The methadone drug mimics the effects of drugs like heroin and so helps to combat withdrawal symptoms. When a drug addict is treated with methadone the dose must gradually be reduced with time as methadone itself is highly addictive. Methadone is usually taken orally, however some users administer the drug through a syringe. The syringes must be sterile to prevent the spread of infection.
