All throughout the state of Ohio there are many different detoxes and medical detox centers available in the counties throughout the state. These medical detox centers throughout the state do also offer methadone detox services for methadone users looking to safely withdrawal off of the drug. A methadone withdrawal can be a dangerous process for the user, as methadone does cause severe physical dependency. A methadone detox will be in a residential setting where a patient will go through the process to withdrawal off of methadone. This can be a lengthy process or can take a couple weeks, but this depends on the amount of methadone the user is taking and what other medical problems they may have. Methadone detox centers can be covered by health insurance, while other facilities will be low-cost or offer free services, as long with private methadone detox centers. Each service will be able to provide the needed help for a methadone user to detox off of the drug. This will take the use of other medications to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms as by the end of the detox process, they patient will be off of all drugs and can look to enter into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.
