Under the care and supervision of a skilled team of doctors, nurses and counselors, patients receive methadone treatment, drug counseling, education and more. Methadone is a synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine and other narcotics, but that does not produce the same "high" when used in proper doses under the care of a certified physician. Patients work with their treatment team to determine the correct dosage to minimize drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms, and are in control of how long they use methadone to overcome their opiate addiction. Medford enjoys a mild climate, beautiful scenery and a vibrant cultural scene. Located in southern Oregon's largest city, just 27 miles north of the Oregon/California border, the Medford Allied Health Services Clinic is within easy access to North Bend, Eugene, Springfield, Klamath Falls and surrounding areas. It is also accessible from a number of northern California towns, including Eureka, Redding, Shasta Lake and others.
