Nebraska Methadone Detoxification Programs

When a former opiate user starts using methadone as help to get off of the opiates, they were previously using, it is important they have a plan to eventually get off of the methadone and become totally drug free. Methadone can cause some severe physical dependency, and users will become addicted to the drug, and in some cases it can end up impacting their physical and mental health. Methadone detox centers are set up for users to successfully detox off of the drug in a safe environment where they can be monitored by medical professionals and support staff whom can help them through the withdrawal process.

The withdrawals from methadone can be very dangerous and painful, and most medical and methadone detox centers will user other medications to help users through the withdrawals. This process can take a couple of weeks to accomplish, while in other cases it can take longer, but this will depend on how much methadone a user is on and if there are other health problems, they are facing. Medical detox centers are set up to handle more severe cases and those addicts who will require more medical supervision.
