Methadone Detoxification - Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facilities - Eagle, NE.

Methadone is a drug used in the reduction of harm associated with opiate dependency and addiction. A person who wants to stop using prescription pain killers or heroin can get started on a methadone program in or near Eagle where they take it daily to avoid withdrawal, stave off cravings and in essence substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who begin methadone treatment remain on it for many years, considering withdrawing off it can bring about withdrawal symptoms far worse than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, just like heroin. However, it remains in the body longer which is why detoxing from it can be so harsh and last such a long time. And considering methadone can remain in the body for so long, users usually will not even begin experiencing withdrawal for a day or two when they stop taking it cold turkey. Methadone withdrawal is similar to that of other opiates, and feels similar to a really bad flu which can include chills, fever, nausea and vomiting, profuse sweating stomach cramping, muscle and bone aches and pain, extreme insomnia, etc.

Methadone detoxification can be made much more comfortable in a professional detoxification facility which allow patients withdrawing from the drug. Some programs provide a medication assisted detox while others help the person detox from the drug cold turkey without any medications.
