This comprehensive, practical manual includes in-depth information on: opioid and other substance dependence methadone and MMT dispensing and self-administration methadone dosing issues minimizing diversion continuity of care when patients are hospitalized or incarcerated adverse effects, toxicity, overdose and withdrawal drug interactions involving methadone (an expanded section), maintenance under special circumstances, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, hepatic and renal impairment, and HIV/AIDS.
