Addiction is a chronic condition that calls for long-term medical attention and treatment. Our multidisciplinary clinic in Hamilton provides a multipronged approach to address this condition. We provide supportive treatment, counselling services, strategies to help prevent relapse, and treatment for other mental health issues.

Sherman Speciality Pharmacy follows a patient centric addiction treatment service. The treatment is uniquely tailored to the person's needs, severity of the problem, their support network, and their desire or motivation to enter the treatment.

Methadone Treatment Program

Methadone is one of the most powerful medications used to fight the opioid epidemic. It has been well researched, and found to be very effective in managing cravings and withdrawals.

Methadone treatment is provided for patients recovering from opioid dependence at our addiction treatment center in Hamilton. Here are some important information to keep in mind while enrolling in the methadone treatment program.

  • Complete adherence to the guidance of the doctors at methadone treatment centres for effective treatment and avoidance of toxicities.
  • Methadone treatment may interact with other medications. Ensure your medical history and medications is communicated with the team.
  • Contact the doctor if you experience any side effects like constipation, decreased libido, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, flushing, headache, itching, light-headedness, nausea, poor appetite, sweating, trouble sleeping, vomiting or weakness.

Methadone can also be used for chronic pain management.

Suboxone Treatment Program

Suboxone is an alternative option for methadone to treat addiction. Suboxone is available as tablets that can be easily dissolved under the tongue. Suboxone is also used for the treatment of chronic pain.
