Methadone is a medication utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. An Individual who wants to quit using prescription pain killers or heroin can get enrolled into a methadone clinic in or near Blanding where they take it on a daily basis to stop withdrawal symptoms, avoid cravings and essentially substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who begin methadone maintenance stay on the drug for decades, considering coming off it can produce withdrawal symptoms much greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, just like heroin and morphine. However, it's effects last much longer which is why detoxing from it can be so harsh and last such a long time. And because methadone can remain in the body for such a long time, users usually will not even start feeling the effects of withdrawal for a day or two when they stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal resembles that of other opiates, and feels similar to a severe flu and may include fever, chills, 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 detox facility that allow patients withdrawing from the drug. Some facilities provide a medically managed detoxification while others help the client detox from the drug without the use of controlled medications.
