I went through this with my now 26 year old about 2 years ago. We got her into BAART after trying a few other places. She has been off of it now for over a year but is still taking methadone. At BAART she sees a counselor & a Dr & they do drug testing to make sure you aren't using. She lives at home & recently has started working again. It's a long process but things do get better.
