Methadone is a drug utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate dependency and addiction. Someone who wants to quit taking heroin or prescription pain killers can get enrolled into a methadone program in or near Corinne where they take it daily to avoid withdrawal, avoid cravings and in essence replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who begin methadone treatment remain on it for many years, because withdrawing off it causes withdrawal symptoms much 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 painful and last such a long time. And because 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 resembles that of other opiates, and feels similar to a severe flu which may include fever, chills, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, acute insomnia, etc.
Methadone detoxification can be made much more comfortable in a professional detoxification facility which accepts patients withdrawing from the drug. Some programs provide a medication assisted detox while others help the client withdrawal off the drug cold turkey without any medications.
