Methadone has long been used to combat severe pain and other opioid addictions in patients, but because of its strength and chemical makeup, it can sometimes result in abuse and overreliance on the drug itself as well. If you or someone you know is suffering from methadone addiction and needs immediate assistance in both detoxing from methadone and starting out on the successful road to recovery, then be sure to get in touch with us today for our methadone detox services.
Dangers of Methadone
Methadone is often used and prescribed to patients after surgery to ease the discomfort or pain, or to assist with minimizing existing pain when carrying out daily activities. It's also prescribed to patients who are suffering from opioid addictions, such as heroin because it can make the comedown period from heroin more tolerable and bearable. However, methadone is a strong drug that can lead many to abuse its power and becoming reliant on it for normal functions. The dangers of methadone usually lead to side effects like changes in appetite, sleeping habits or insomnia, depression, anxiety, and much more.
When you become reliant on methadone and are looking to overcome the addiction, you’ll have to go through a detoxing period to completely rid the drug from your body’s system. This is usually achieved in the first 24-48 hours of your treatment, where our staff can monitor a safe detoxing period and assist you with any complications along the way. You’ll likely be uncomfortable, but our team is here to provide support and guidance, as well as any medical necessities needed to make the process as stress-free and comfortable as possible. Once you’ve detoxed from the methadone, we can then begin further treatment moving forward.
Tailored Treatment Plans
As with all of our professional detox and rehab services, we always aim to provide tailored treatment plans that can offer you the best results based exactly on your needs. Someone who struggles with alcohol likely has different needs than someone who struggles with methadone, so our approach to treatment plans is to create a bespoke one that incorporates your goals for treatment so that we can help you better meet them. Our tailored treatment plans, especially for methadone additions and detox, are developed during the initial consultation and health assessment with our on-site medical staff.
When detoxing from a drug as strong and toxic as methadone, it’s important that it’s done in a safe and comfortable environment where you have professionals around you that can assist with the process. Detoxing from methadone isn’t an easy task but our aim is to ensure that you have a comfortable and safe environment where you can efficiently detox without distractions. You’ll have access to medical staff and mental health professionals during your detox period, and we’ll monitor your body’s reaction to the detox, as well as your health thereafter. Once you’ve overcome the detox, you can then proceed with further steps in your recovery plan.
