Methadone Addiction

Treating Methadone Addiction

Don’t mistake the fact that methadone is used to treat addiction to other drugs like heroin as an indicator of a harmless substance. It is anything but harmless. Much like heroin and other destructive drugs, methadone is an opiate. Therefore, it is very addictive, and it requires a detox process that involves serious withdrawal symptoms which must be closely monitored and managed. These withdrawal symptoms include the following:

  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Fever and chills
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Intense cravings
  • Irritability
  • Rapid Heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness

Effectively managing the detox process is crucial to the overall success of your recovery program. At Compass Recovery, we will encourage you to stay active. That way, you’ll not only have less time to think about your next dose of methadone, but you’ll also be acclimating your body to a new and healthy routine, full of promise, hope, and peace.

We use a proven effective combination of medication, healthy diet, exercise, and counseling to provide you with the tools you need to rediscover your life free from drug addiction. No longer will you have to wait in line every day for your dosage, and feel like a prisoner to methadone.

In addition to establishing a new, healthier routine, the courteous and professional staff at Compass Recovery will listen to your individual needs continuously, so that we are on the same page with your unique treatment plan, based on your individual needs for successful recovery.

You will work closely with our medical staff, so we can manage any side effects to your physical comfort. Perhaps even more important than that will be the psychological counseling through group and individual therapy whenever you need it, to get through some of the most challenging aspects of emotional trauma that addiction can cause.

If you’re tired of being a slave to methadone and want to live your life with renewed purpose, a healthy body, and a free mind with unlimited potential, contact us at Compass Recovery today.
