Figure 2

Self-reported heroin use in 613 methadone-maintained patients during the 30 days prior to the interview differed significantly with the prescribed methadone dose (mg/ day) (Kruskal-Wallis Test; χ2= 13.326; df = 2; p < 0.001). Patients in the high dose group reported significantly less heroin use compared to the low dose group (Mann–Whitney; Z = −2.723; p < 0.01) and the medium dose group (Mann–Whitney; Z = −3.645; p < 0.001).
