Methadone is one of the most difficult drugs to quit despite its qualities as a pain reliever. Patients treated with this drug for pain regularly develop dependence that requires detoxification. Just like any other drug detoxification, the process can be challenging and at times painful. Without qualified medical professionals, it can be riddled with withdrawal symptoms.

Methadone is a popular prescription drug used to treat non-cancer related pain. It’s also used to manage opioid addiction such as heroin. Despite being an effective treatment, the drug itself can be addictive. In 2011, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that more than 5,000 deaths were attributed to overdose. It’s reported that in 2012, more than 2 million people used it for non-medical purposes.
