    Methadone is different from say morphine or other drugs but it still acts on the opiate receptors. It is a synthetically derived opiate drug that has similar effects to morphine but because it operates a bit differently is sometimes used to help with withdrawl symptoms. It can also be effective as a treatment for severe pain.
