    The Duality of Methadone

    Getting over addiction can mean finding methadone treatment that works.

    Methadone is most commonly used as maintenance or an in-between solution to help opiate addicts avoid the withdrawal from their drug of choice, usually heroin. Much of the information on methadone discusses its use as a treatment while often ignoring its addictive qualities.

    If you’re struggling with a methadone addiction, you’re not alone. Plaguing people across the country who want to recover from their opiate addiction, methadone can cause as much harm as good.

    Withdrawal from methadone can be particularly painful because the drug stays in your system for far longer than many other drugs.

    Get started on the road to recovery.

    Defeating Your Methadone Addiction

    Overcoming an addiction that has become a part of your life for a long time can be overwhelming. Many people are deep into their addiction, unable to remember what life was like before methadone. But if you’re at the point where your drug dependency has lowered your quality of life, it’s time to overcome it. There is a compassionate treatment specialist that can help you.

    Detoxing from Methadone

    Because methadone is a long-acting drug, its presence remains in the user’s body long after the effects wear off. For this reason, many people overdose or take more than they should because they’re looking for a high that isn’t easy to get.

    Detoxing from methadone can be as difficult as detoxing from heroin. Both are opiates with similar effects on the body, including nausea, vomiting and muscle cramps. A medically supervised detox may include buprenorphine to ease the symptoms of the withdrawal, as well as shorten the time it takes to detox.

    What to Expect from Treatment

    Methadone treatment typically involves three parts: detoxification, inpatient treatment and outpatient therapy.

      • Detox

        Detoxification is the most challenging part of treatment from a physiological perspective, as your body is essentially cleansed of years worth of chemical reconditioning.

      • Inpatient

        Inpatient treatment allows for a distraction-free experience that provides a safe, comfortable place to re-learn how to live your life.

      • Outpatient

        Outpatient therapy provides ongoing support for you as you go through one of the hardest things you may ever face.
