Methadone Treatment: Overview and Bibliography.
Greenfield, Lawrence; Tang, Beth Archibald
This overview focuses on methadone treatment. Briefly, it describes the clinical uses of methadone for substance abuse treatment, explores dosage guidelines, and discusses counseling components. This overview also reviews research data on the application of methadone treatment to special populations, such as pregnant women, polydrug users, and patients with HIV/AIDS or coexisting disorders. It also discusses and charts a number of representative outcome evaluation studies, which are frequently cited in the literature. Supporting bibliographies focus on the various topics mentioned above. The citations and references were obtained from database searches, personal communication with Dr. Herman Joseph, recommendations from the professional staff at Caliber Associates, and through backtracking references in articles. The "Other Resources" section highlights online documents and related Internet sites for further information. (Contains 62 references.) (MKA)
