About Our Florida Methadone Detox Center
Methadone is actually an opiate. While used as a pain reliever and analgesic, it is most commonly associated with usage for heroin addiction. This has been controversial over the years but has produced results with treatment for addiction and maintenance.
However, as an opioid, it itself is also addictive, and can be abused and misused. It is a misconception that methadone addiction is not serious, or that “since it’s not as bad as heroin”, users are better off. Methadone addiction and abuse is still quite dangerous and destructive which is why we recommend attending our Florida methadone detox center for treatment.
It is important to note that First Step does not prescribe or utilize any narcotics for methadone detox or rehabilitation except in instances when it is medically necessary.
As you detox from methadone in Florida, withdrawal symptoms may include:
• Vomiting, nausea and diarrhea
• Fever and chills
• Body aches and pains
• Agitation and anxiety
Methadone withdrawal is not as severe as heroin withdrawal, however its severity and intensity will differ from patient to patient.
That’s why our experienced staff is always available, at each step of the process, to offer guidance and care.
Each person will go through their own unique process and there’s no such thing as a single solution or single path.
