    Methadone is what doctors use to treat heroin addicts so it is definitely not worse, it is better. It is given as a pill so it contains no impurities and is not injected so you avoid abcesses, infections, AIDS, hepatitis. It prevents the symptoms of withdrawal from heroin addiction that are so uncomfortable like vomiting, sweating, agitation, etc. It is given in a controlled dose so if taken properly you wont overdose and die. You remain mentally and physically functional while taking it. And it can be tapered down over time so that you come off it gradually to avoid withdrawal. Its definitely better.
