Synopsis

Over the course of 18 months, the problematic use of methadone as a treatment for heroin addiction is illustrated by the profiles of eight addicts in different stages of recovery and relapse at the New York Center for Addiction Treatment Services (NYCATS). Though methadone has been used to treat heroin addiction for over 30 years, the treatment can be as harmful as heroin itself when mixed with other substances, such as benzodiazopenes.
