Methadone Detox Symptoms

Table of Contents

People struggling with Methadone Addiction face physical and psychological symptoms when detoxing. These can be hard to manage without the help and support of a professional detox program. There are certain opiate treatment centers that can minimize – even eliminate – the symptoms of Methadone withdrawal.
Trying to quit on your own is not wise because Methadone detox complications can arise. A “cold turkey” detox can be dangerous. Many people try it, but sadly, most fail. This isn’t due to a lack of willpower. The force of opiate addiction can be so great that even the strongest people succumb to its power.

Opiate Withdrawal Affects People Physically And Psychologically

A person who tries to detox from Methadone can expect to experience physical opiate withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Muscle aches
  • Increased tear production
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Yawning
  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goose bumps

Many people think that a physical detox alone is enough to cure a Methadone addiction. This is a big misconception. Ignoring the psychological, mental and emotional aspect of the disease could put you right back at square one. Anytime a person is getting off opiates or any other addictive substance, he or she will want to have counseling and support to deal with psychological opiate withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • Extreme agitation
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness

Waismann Method Is Proven Leader In The Treatment Of Methadone Addiction

We know opiate replacement therapy isn’t an option for most patients. This is when people take Methadone, Suboxone or Subutex to come off other opiates deemed more dangerous. But replacing one opiate with another doesn’t solve the problem. It leads to further dependency issues.
Waismann Method is a Southern California-based rapid detox center that can eliminate the physical opiate dependency in a few days. We also address psychological dependence in our aftercare program. Our medical procedure happens in an accredited hospital and patients are closely monitored from check in to discharge.
We use the most medically advanced procedure to eradicate physical Methadone addiction at the receptor sites.

How our Patients Skip Most Methadone Detox Symptoms

Our patients are admitted the day before anesthesia detox to undergo a detailed evaluation, including analysis of medical history and a physical examination, laboratory testing, EKG, chest x-ray, and urine toxicology screening. Additional cardiac testing may be required. Admission to the hospital at least one day before  procedure allows necessary time to conduct proper medical screening in order to maximize effectiveness and safety.
We give intravenous medication to cleanse the opiate receptors while patients are under anesthesia. This sedation induced process, is key because medications accelerate withdrawal and patients aren’t aware that symptoms are developing and passing.  Rapid Detox treatment takes place in an intensive care unit, and patients are monitored for approximately a day following the procedure so they can be appropriately treated for changes that may arise as a result of the procedure.
Once medically cleared patients are discharged to our exclusive recovery retreat for continuous care for a few days.
We offer a  true solution for the problem of Methadone addiction, and people from all over the world with all levels of Methadone dosages, have achieved outstanding success with our medical detoxification.
If you are suffering with this problem, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. Your life depends on it.
