Methadone is a drug utilized for the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. A person who wants to quit taking heroin or prescription pain killers can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Henefer where they ingest it daily to avoid withdrawal, stave off cravings and essentially replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many individuals who start methadone treatment remain on the drug for many years, considering coming off it can produce withdrawal symptoms far greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, similar to heroin and morphine. However, it's effects last much longer which is why the withdrawal from it can be so harsh and last such a long time. And since methadone can remain in the body for such a long time, users usually will not even begin feeling the effects of withdrawal for a day or two if they quit taking it. Methadone withdrawal is like that of other opiates, and are likened to a severe flu and can include chills, fever, nausea and vomiting, profuse sweating muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, acute insomnia, etc.
