Goals of Pharmacotherapy of Opioid Dependence:

  1. Prevention or reduction of withdrawal symptoms
  2. Prevention or reduction of opoid cravings
  3. Prevention of relapse to use of addictive opioids
  4. Restoration to or toward normalcy of any physiologic function disrupted by chronic opioid use Methadone regularly administered at steady state is present at levels sufficient to maintain alertness without craving or drug preoccupation throughout the dosing interval – usually 24 hours.
