Methadone is a drug used in the reduction of harm associated with opiate dependency and addiction. An Individual who wants to quit taking heroin or prescription pain killers can get enrolled into a methadone clinic in or near Salem where they ingest it on a daily basis to stop withdrawal, stave off cravings and in essence substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who begin methadone maintenance remain on it for many years, due to the fact that coming off it causes withdrawal symptoms much greater than even heroin withdrawal. Methadone is a full opioid agonist, just like heroin. However, it's effects last much longer which is why the withdrawal from it can be so uncomfortable and last so long. And because 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 stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal resembles that of other opiates, and feels similar to a really bad flu and may include fever, chills, nausea and vomiting, profuse sweating 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 allow patients withdrawing from the drug. Some facilities provide a medically managed detox while others help the client detox from the drug without the use of controlled medications.
