Methadone is a regulated drug utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate dependency and addiction. Someone who wants to stop taking heroin or prescription pain killers can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Mormon Lake where they ingest it daily to avoid withdrawal symptoms, avoid cravings and essentially substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who start methadone treatment stay on it for decades, considering coming off it can produce withdrawal symptoms much greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, similar to heroin and morphine. However, it's effects last much longer which is why the withdrawal from it can be so painful and last such a long time. Additionally, considering methadone can remain in the body for such a long time, users usually will not even begin experiencing withdrawal for a day or two when they quit taking it cold turkey. Methadone withdrawal is similar to that of other opiates, and feels similar to a severe flu which can include fever, chills, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, extreme insomnia, etc.
Methadone withdrawal can be made much more comfortable in a detox facility that accepts patients withdrawing from the drug. Some facilities offer a medically managed detox while others help the client detox from the drug cold turkey without any medications.
