Methadone Addiction Treatment

Methadone is a synthetic opiate used in medical settings, but it also carries a high risk of dependence when abused. Once addiction develops, it is challenging to quit using without seeking treatment. Fortunately, it is possible to overcome dependence, so if you need help with methadone addiction, we at United Recovery offer treatment to help you in your recovery journey.

Our guide to methadone rehab will assist with what to expect from our unique approach and the steps you can take to sobriety.

Getting Help for Methadone Addiction

Methadone is a synthetic opiate used to treat pain and withdrawal symptoms from heroin under strict medical supervision. It is a legal medicine; however, it is associated with a high risk of misuse and addiction.

Because Methadone is part of the opioid class of drugs, it is considered highly addictive, which is why seeking treatment is integral to your future health and well-being. It assists those recovering from substance abuse and dependence by relieving pain. While Methadone doesn’t create the high you would expect with other substances, the more it reduces pain, the more tolerance you develop.

Tong-term use of Methadone causes impairments in the brain and central nervous system; you need professional help to safely detox and recovery from addiction. When you recognize the impact of addiction on your life and that of the people you love, you can reach out to us for effective and tailored methadone rehab and addiction recovery.

How We Treat Methadone Addiction & Abuse

Our methadone rehab starts with detox, which includes safely removing the substance from the body. As a dedicated medical facility, our staff provides monitoring and medical assistance to help you safely overcome uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal from Methadone can range from anxiety and insomnia to body pain, depression, and diarrhea. Symptoms of withdrawal can last between 4-6 weeks, but this is based on individual cases.

Upon completing a successful detox, you can enter our residential rehab if you choose to continue with inpatient care. Our rehabilitation programs are tailored to your needs. You will receive individual and group therapy, holistic therapies including art, music, nutrition counseling, and the chance to experience wellness activities such as massage and chiropractor services.

Because methadone addiction creates changes in the function of the brain and the central nervous system, the body becomes dependent on it. Our role is to assist you in treating methadone addiction and abuse with a safe and supportive environment in which you can relax and focus on your recovery.

How Long Does Methadone Rehab Last?

Opiate addiction is treated differently from stimulants because it takes longer for the body to overcome addiction. Methadone is an opiate drug that changes how we perceive and experience pain and discomfort. As one continues to use, the body develops tolerance, and more substances must be ingested to achieve the original effect. When you try to quit using, the body cannot function, and withdrawal symptoms occur. As Methadone impacts mental and physical health, a long-term program is needed to help you recover.

Our opiate recovery program typically lasts 12 months, emphasizing individual therapy and steps to help the body adjust without methadone use. Long-term treatment for methadone addiction provides the best chances of recovery because of the intensity of cravings and withdrawal that occur for weeks after detox.

Long Term Recovery from Methadone Addiction

To achieve long-term recovery from methadone addiction, a necessary part of the rehabilitation process is aftercare and attendance of support groups such as the ones organised as part of our Alumni community. Methadone addiction has both a physical and psychological basis. Even when the drug is no longer present in the body, its psychological effects can negatively impact your ability to focus on healing and achieving your life goals.

Methadone is responsible for one in four deaths related to opioid use. Because a doctor can prescribe it for pain relief, it is also considered an accessible drug that is highly addictive. At United Recovery, we understand the dangers of Methadone, and therefore we provide both aftercare and group support in our methadone rehab program. We believe in helping you readjust to everyday life in your home environment. Through support groups, you can learn how to manage challenges in your life by sharing your personal stories and experiences of addiction with others.

Aftercare teaches you essential skills to cope with stress, prevent relapse, and identify triggers that could compromise your sobriety. It is provided outside of inpatient care to help you maintain sobriety.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How are medications used during opiate addiction treatment?

The withdrawal after opiate detox can extend beyond the physical symptoms and create psychological difficulties. One type of medication used to assist patients during addiction treatment is pain relievers, as they can alleviate pain. Only under the guidance of a medical professional and as determined by the individual assessment will medications in addiction treatment be advised.

Does my insurance cover methadone rehab?

Insurance will cover all types of drug rehabilitation programs, provided it is included in your policy and plan. It is crucial to speak to your insurance provider to determine whether a full or partial cover is provided. We can also do a check on our end, but you need to contact us for an individual report.

Do you offer dual diagnosis treatment?

Yes, we offer dual diagnosis treatment, including tailored programs for treating addiction, including mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety. An experienced medical professional delivers our diagnosis.

What happens when I arrive at the treatment center?

When you arrive at the center, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff and assisted by a professional therapist. An assessment will be performed, after which you will enter our addiction detox program.

What can I bring to rehab?

When you attend rehab, you can bring personal hygiene products, some cash, and paper, pens, and envelopes so you can write to your family and friends during treatment. The facility does restrict mobile phone usage. You will also receive a checklist concerning what you can and cannot bring.

What medications should not be taken with Methadone?

You should not take any muscle relaxer, including pain medication such as tramadol with Methadone. It causes depressive effects on the system, leading to respiratory depression and even death if combined with Methadone.

How long can a patient stay in rehab?

For opiate treatment, patients can stay in rehab for up to twelve months or longer, depending on addiction severity, dosages, co-occurring conditions, and more.
