In brief: None if Lucky
Not sure what you mean by detox, but if you mean opioid maintenance, the symptoms should be minimal.
If you mean detox as in completely gradually getting off any opioids such as heroin, oxycondone, morphine, or hydrocodone, symptoms could be severe anxiety, heart racing, sweating, tearing of the eyes, runny nose, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Getting off Methadone can take quite a while, .

In brief: Methadone detox
Methadone can be used to detox a client addicted to opiate pain pills or heroin.
For clients stabilized on Methadone for years and choose to detox from methadone, the symptoms of Methadone detox are very mild, because Methadone is a long acting opiate. Chills, diarrhea, bone pains, flulike symptoms, and opiate cravings are very, very, mild and some times pass quickly without notice.
