Men and women who are addicted to heroin, prescription drugs and other substances are able to participate in short- and long-term methadone treatment programs, as well as drug counseling and education about the disease of addiction. The long-term success rates of methadone are unmatched by other treatments for opiate addiction. Doctors certified to dispense methadone work with patients to determine the proper dosage to minimize drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, and let the patients decide when and how to stop taking methadone. Located in Milwaukee, the largest city in the state of Wisconsin, the 10th Street Clinic also serves Shorewood, Franklin, New Berlin, Brookfield, Oak Creek and all surrounding areas. Patients are able to receive cutting-edge addiction treatment while working, fulfilling family obligations, and enjoying the region's many attractions, cultural festivals and recreational opportunities.
