In brief: It's legal
Heroine is an illegal drug and unregulated.
You'll not know what you are really getting. With methadone, you know you are using it under the guidance of a specialist dealing with the addicted patient, and you are under medical supervision.

In brief: Stability
Heroin addiction is associated with risky behaviors.
This includes crimes associated with obtaining heroin, unknowns in quality and potency, risky administration (iv, snorted). Methadone can supress heroin cravings in a medically safe way to stop risky behaviors. That stated switzerland has heroin clinics that work in the same way. Medical grade and supervised heroin stops risky behaviors.
