Methadone is a drug utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. An Individual who wants to quit abusing prescription pain killers or heroin can get started on a methadone clinic in or near New River where they ingest it daily to avoid withdrawal symptoms, avoid cravings and basically replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who begin methadone treatment stay on it for many years, because coming off it causes withdrawal symptoms far greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, just like heroin. However, it's effects last much longer which is why the withdrawal from it can be so harsh and last so long. And because methadone can remain in the body for so long, users may not even begin experiencing withdrawal for a day or two when they stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal is similar to that of other opiates, and feels similar to a severe flu and can include fever, chills, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, extreme insomnia, etc.
