          Methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) was first introduced in 2005 by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia as a therapy to enhance drug addicts’ quality of life. This study is to access the public awareness and behavior towards MMT program whereby a self administered questionnaire was distributed to the respondents in a public hospital. The data obtained were analyzed using SPSS version 16.

In conclusion, the low awareness level of MMT program amongst public in Malaysia is might be due to limited campaigns and information.
