Recovery-oriented methadone maintenance

William White

Abstract

Recovery-oriented methadone maintenance (ROMM) is an approach to the treatment of opioid addiction that combines methadone pharmacotherapy and a sustained menu of professional and peer-based recovery support services to assist patients and families in initiating and maintaining long-term addiction recovery—recovery defined here as remission of primary and secondary substance use disorders, enhancement of personal/family health and functioning, and positive community reintegration.
