Welcome to A.F.I.R.M.AFIRM is a group of methadone maintenance treatment providers, consumers and other interested parties. We support methadone maintenance as treatment and as an effective tool of recovery.
We believe that methadone is a successful form of treatment that can be enhanced by the integration of other treatment approaches.
Our mission includes the education and training of health providers and the community regarding the benefits of methadone treatment. To fulfill this, we promote the development and proliferation of Methadone Anonymous and other 12-Step fellowships, clinical treatment alternatives, public relations initiatives and other political advocacy.
