Methadone detox and withdrawal information
Methadone has a slow metabolism and very high fat solubility, making it longer lasting than morphine-based drugs. Methadone has a typical elimination half-life of 15 to 60 hours with a mean of around 22. Due to these characteristics the methadone toxicity of a person's body can continue to increase and potentially be fatal. The number of methadone-related fatalities continues to dramatically rise in the United States, which is just one reason to find a successful detox program to get off of methadone.

The primary fear of many opiate and methadone users is having to "kick," or go through withdrawal from the drug. Methadone has very severe and longer-lasting withdrawal symptoms than other narcotics, which is why many detox clinics don't deal with higher levels of the drug. However, our experienced and professional counselors can help you find a methadone detox program that is well versed in helping someone detox off of higher levels of methadone in a much shorter period of time and with minimal symptoms. There is no need to continue taking methadone for weeks, months or years when effective methadone detox help is available.
Symptoms of methadone withdrawal may include:
- chills or cold sweats
- elevated blood pressure
- muscle aches
- suicidal ideation
- anxiety and panics
- auditory and visual hallucinations
Many methadone users who have withdrawn from the drug without the aid of a methadone detox center have described it as the worst experience of their lives. This doesn't have to be you. We can help you find a methadone detoxification program that works.
