How to beat methadone addiction

Many people people that have a methadone addiction say they started using this medication to kick heroin. I am reasonably sure that you have heard of heard of this type of addiction. That’s right if you choose to use a methadone detox to stop using heroin then you stand the chance of one day having to go through a withdrawal from methadone this is basically exchanging one set of drugs for another unless the detox is done properly.

How to deal with prescription painkiller addiction 

This is just my opinion some may disagree. I see this as a future problem which would be a substance addictionDon’t not be confused about this methadone is legal but it’s surely just as addictive as heroin. Possibly even more because you tell yourself it is legal and I need it. In truth for a lot of people it’s just another escape because they do not wish to deal with life on life’s terms.

This is not the only way that people become addicted to methadone. Some people were placed on this medication after a surgery or serious injury and one thing led to another and they ended up addicted. This type of prescription addiction usually occurs as I said when the patient is prescribed methadone to alleviate some type of pain. They generally start out taking their medication as it was prescribed and its working well to kill their pain then one day they find that it is no longer working so they decide to increase there dose maybe they will take one or two extra pills and once again it works great and they are pain free.

Ok now here’s the catch when this is done for an extended period they will start to build up a tolerance which means they will have to take more and more of the medication to get the desired affect. This is the beginning of addiction and if you do not do something about it at this point it will turn into a full blown opiate addiction.

Detoxing from methadone in 21 days

One thing I can say is basically true of all addicts is we may not know how to deal with or emotions or what ever so drugs allow us to escape our feelings. I would strongly recommend that if you are not already on a methadone detox then do not get on one unless you are absolutely can not stop using any other way. One way that I actually believe that it can help people trying to stop using heroin would be a 21 day detox methadone clinic. This is about all you would need to be completely off of heroin so there is no need to take it any longer than necessary.

If you choose to use this method to stop using heroin they will slowly detox you by starting you on a dose comparable to the amount of heroin you were using. What happens is they will bring you up to this point get you leveled off and then slowly bring you back down. You still can run the risk of becoming addicted so I would not weigh my decisions lightly because you can always be detox in a drug rehab.


How to beat methadone  

If you are thinking about quitting methadone then my suggestion is that if you want to know how to stop  methadone withdrawal you do a taper detox from methadone. Maybe you could try to do something like decrease your doses say 5mg a week. In any case take action now before you wind up with an addiction. I let my methadone use get completely out of control and I had a hard time of stopping methadone after 4 years of use and that was a for real drug addiction. I mean you are literally chained down to whichever clinic you go to and if you miss a couple days you start to go through withdrawal. I can tell you first hand that withdrawal from methadone is downright nasty no two ways about it. I kicked methadone in jail and I was sicker than two dogs.

If you would rather stop using methadone in  a methadone rehab then go for it. One last thing I will suggest for you is substance abuse treatment. If you do stop using methadone you will have to replace it with something positive you may want to consider going to NA meetings.

If you really want to improve the quality of your life perhaps you may want to go back to school or maybe it is time for a career change. Anyone can stop using lose the desire to use and find a new way to live this includes you!

      Hi Tanya thanks for your comment yes I know its hard to tell the truth but I know I felt better when I was no longer afraid who new I was an addict. I go to school too and if I think it will help another person I let them know I am a recovering addict; in fact I let many of my instructors know that I was a recovering addict. I am not sure how sick you will get but I would not let what others think hold me up. Congrats on going to school and making the decision to get off drugs.

      Hi Andria Ya I know exactly what you mean I was stuck on a methadone program for over 3 years and I thank God that I do not have to go through that anymore. If you make up your mind to be drug free so can you!

    I’m not going to say anything about the comment, I’m not sure it’s relavent. I have been on meth for 5 years. I was not a street junkie, I had been living with chronic pain for a long time. 4 herniated Disks plus a variety of surgeries that left openings for arthritis. I slowly climbed the ladder to 50mg phentynol patches and 20 mg oxycontin tabs for breakthrough pain. Then I found people who could get the heavy stuff. morphine sulfate 100, 200, oxy 80 and Dilaudid 4&8. I finally ended up in an interview with a Methadone specialist. With barely a name I was told the rules,regs and 30mgs of meth.It took 24 hrs for the withdrawl symptoms to hit. Hell. 18 hours later I woke up,feeling tired but able to move. THAT WAS MY WAY OUT. Two months later. 220 mg of meth per day. For Two years straight.That was in late april of 07. It’s now November 2010,roughly 5 years after my intake and the the destruction of my life. I guess I never had a hard habit, Because not much changed in my life before I went on methadone. Now I’ve gone from a daily exercise and 175 lbs to a hard time walking up to my 4th floor apt and 234LBS. my meth level, 150mg. I think if your reading this you can get access to the web for information. I was told its like free dope. If I had done some checking I would now be celebrating at least 4 and a half years clean, 175 trim, fit pounds and not wishing for a visit from a reaper.

      Hi Scott thanks for your comment. I understand that you wish maybe you would have chosen a different route than methadone but on the other hand maybe at the time it was Gods plan for you to keep you alive. It is never to late to do something different as long as your above ground. While I was on the Methadone clinic I too seen people gain an unreal amount of weight fast.

    I mastered more new stuff on this weight loss issue. One issue is that good nutrition is especially vital any time dieting. A tremendous reduction in bad foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, pork, and whitened flour products can be necessary. Retaining wastes organisms, and contaminants may prevent objectives for losing belly fat. While certain drugs in the short term solve the issue, the horrible side effects are certainly not worth it, and so they never present more than a short-lived solution. It can be a known idea that 95% of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this site.
