Methadone is a medication utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. A person who wants to stop taking heroin or prescription pain killers can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Aurora where they ingest it daily to avoid withdrawal, stave off cravings and basically replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who start methadone maintenance remain on it for decades, due to the fact that coming off it can produce withdrawal symptoms far greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, similar to heroin. However, it's effects last much longer which is why the withdrawal from it can be so uncomfortable and last such a long time. And considering methadone can remain in the body for such a long time, users usually will not even start experiencing withdrawal for a day or two if they stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal is like that of other opiates, and are likened to a severe flu which can include chills, fever, nausea and vomiting, profuse sweating stomach cramping, muscle and bone aches and pain, acute insomnia, etc.
Methadone detoxification can be made much more comfortable in a professional detoxification facility which accepts patients withdrawing from the drug. Some centers provide a medically managed detox while others help the individual detox from the drug cold turkey without any medications.
