Hi. I recently asked about MMT tapering while dealing with other mitigating factors. My main concern is possibly being “stuck” on the clinic. I feel like many doctors either aren’t educated or informed about methadone and it’s long term effects, or simply don’t care. I want to taper safely AND STAY CLEAN. Honestly, I’m terrified. Can you PLEASE offer some suggestions and information about methadone maintenance’s long term effects, tapering and possibly any doctors in the Philadelphia/northeastern PA area?
Thanks

Alysa,  Please see my previous response.  I do not know anybody specifically, but it would be wise to seek a psychiatry group through the university hospital.
