If I am reading this right, you are asking if Methadone itself can be passed from one person to another by having unprotected sex, is that right?

If that is the case, then no. Methadone just like any other drug cannot be passed from one adult to another by having sex.
Also the disease of addiction cannot be transmitted by having sex either.
There are some great resources out there for the education of the treatment of addiction with methadone. I would suggest that you do some reading so that you are familiar with it and the good it can do.

Here is some suggested reading:

http://www.atforum.com/

http://www.medicalassistedtreatment.org/

methadone.org has a methadone awareness test that you might find useful as well. Here is the link to that:
