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.
