Methodone is for ANY opiate addiction because it binds to the same receptor sites in the brain as does any opiate (hydrocodone, morphine, codeine, oxycodone/oxycontin, oxymorphone
,demerol,dilaudid etc. etc. etc.) So yes the methadone stops the withdrawal symptoms
without giving you the high. Yes you can get a high from methadone if you take a large amount but bot the same high as hydrocodone. Remember hydrocodone is a more potent opioid than even codeine making the high so smooth and euphoric!
