Methadone is a medication used in the reduction of harm associated with opiate addiction and dependency. An Individual who wants to quit taking prescription pain killers or heroin can get started on a methadone clinic in or near Tremonton where they ingest it daily to avoid withdrawal, stave off cravings and basically substitute their addiction with a legal medication. Many people who start methadone maintenance treatment remain on it 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 the withdrawal from it can be so uncomfortable and last for weeks. Additionally, since methadone can stay in the body for so long, users may not even start experiencing withdrawal for a day or two if they stop taking it. Methadone withdrawal resembles that of other opiates, and are likened to a really bad flu and can include chills, fever, nausea and vomiting, profuse sweating stomach cramping, muscle and bone aches and pain, extreme insomnia, etc.
Methadone withdrawal can be made more comfortable and manageable in a detox facility which accepts methadone clients. Some facilities offer a medication assisted detox while others help the client get off the drug without the use of controlled medications.
