Methadone is a drug utilized for the treatment of opiate addiction. An Individual who wants to stop abusing heroin or prescription pain killers can get enrolled into a methadone clinic in or near Orangeville where they take it daily to stop withdrawal symptoms, stave off cravings and essentially replace their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who start methadone maintenance stay on the drug for many years, considering withdrawing 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 remains in the body longer which is why detoxing from it can be so painful and last such a long time. Additionally, since methadone can stay in the body for so long, users usually will not even start experiencing withdrawal for a day or two if they quit taking it. Methadone withdrawal is like that of other opiates, and feels similar to a severe flu which may include chills, fever, profuse sweating, nausea and vomiting, muscle and bone aches and pain, stomach cramping, acute insomnia, etc.
