Alaska Methadone Detoxification Programs

Methadone detox is a necessary treatment for addicts who are hooked on the drug or have been using the drug for longer than what was required. Methadone can be a very dangerous drug to detox from, unless it is in a supervised setting where medical professionals can monitor the process and control the withdrawals.

In the state of Alaska, there are some facilities available, which will provide methadone detox to adults who are looking to successfully come off of this drug. A typical detox period can last from two weeks to a month, and in some cases longer, but this will depend on how much the person is taking, what their health may be like, and if they are using or abusing any other drugs or medications.

Methadone detox is typically done in a residential setting, where a patient can remain comfortable and under constant supervision as the withdrawals can potentially be dangerous. Methadone detox centers can be covered by insurance, be a low-cost or no-cost facility, or may be a private center. It is important that a methadone user who wishes to come off of the drug seek out medical help or a detox to assist in the process, as stopping methadone abruptly can be very dangerous.
