Methadone Anonymous

Methadone Anonymous is a support group dedicated to people struggling with methadone and other opiates addiction. This support group uses the 12-step approach to dealing with addiction. It is a newcomer on the addiction stage (when compared to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, etc.) but now, more than ever is it needed. Methadone (and other opiates) have become a huge problem all across the United States, especially since it has been, and still is, used to treat people with other substance abuse problems, even though drugs like methadone can themselves be extremely addictive.

It offers meetings in the United States where addicts can help each through sharing of experience and support. Methadone Anonymous helps people who have become addicted to opiates through recreational use or prescribed use.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
