Is the use of medications like methadone and buprenorphine simply replacing one drug addiction with another?

No – Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (M.O.U.D.) treatment with buprenorphine and methadone are not heroin/opioid substitutes. They are prescribed or administered under monitored, controlled conditions, and are safe and effective for treatment of opioid addiction when used as directed. They help to stabilize the opioid system in the body.
