Methadone is a drug used in the treatment of opiate dependency and addiction. An Individual who wants to stop using prescription pain killers or heroin can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Mayfield where they ingest it on a daily basis to stop withdrawal symptoms, avoid cravings and in essence replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who start methadone maintenance treatment stay on the drug for decades, because coming off it can bring about withdrawal symptoms far greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, just like heroin and morphine. However, it remains in the body longer which is why detoxing from it can be so uncomfortable and last so long. Additionally, considering 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 when they stop taking it cold turkey. Methadone withdrawal is similar to that of other opiates, and are likened to a severe flu and can include chills, fever, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, stomach cramping, muscle and bone aches and pain, acute insomnia, etc.
Methadone detoxification can be made more comfortable and manageable in a professional detoxification facility which accepts methadone clients. Some centers provide a medication assisted detox while others help the individual detox from the drug without the use of controlled medications.
