Methadone is a prescription medication utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. A person who wants to stop using heroin or prescription pain killers can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Enterprise where they take it on a daily basis to avoid withdrawal symptoms, avoid cravings and basically substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who begin methadone maintenance treatment remain on the drug for many years, because coming off it causes withdrawal symptoms much worse 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 painful and last so long. And considering methadone can remain in the body for such a long time, users may not even start experiencing withdrawal for a day or two when they stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal is similar to that of other opiates, and are likened to a really bad flu and can include fever, chills, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, extreme insomnia, etc.
Methadone withdrawal can be made more comfortable and manageable in a professional detoxification facility that accepts patients withdrawing from the drug. Some programs provide a medication assisted detox while others help the client detox from the drug without the use of controlled medications.
