Our clinical team is exceptionally experienced in detoxing individuals who have been on methadone and wish to discontinue their use.

At Recovery First, we are able to successfully detox individuals from methadone in a safe and supervised environment.

When a person arrives at our detox facility in Florida, we conduct a thorough evaluation of their:

  • Physical health.
  • Psychiatric issues.
  • Life situation.

We then commence compassionate and comfortable medically supervised detoxification that does not involve any use of methadone.

Instead, we administer comfort and prescription medications as needed, including the opioid-withdrawal, symptom-relief medication Lucemyra. We may also administer buprenorphine to help ease withdrawal symptoms in some cases.

Our addiction treatment is individualized to optimize a smooth detoxification process that involves not only medical but psychological support.

In groups specially designed for our methadone detox patients, we will discuss topics pertinent to methadone detox, what to expect, and how to cope.

FAQs About Methadone Detox

Who Can Attend?

Recovery First welcomes anyone who is currently on methadone and wants to get off it. We do require patients to be medically stable and that they understand no methadone will be used during detox.

We also ask that patients be motivated and understanding that the first few days may be difficult.

How Long Is Methadone Detox?

How long methadone detox takes will vary from person to person. The detox timeframe depends on the dose of methadone a person has been taking, how long they have been on methadone, and other individual factors.

What Happens After Detoxing From Methadone?

When a person completes detox from methadone, they will continue addiction treatment as recommended within the standard clinical program.

Depending on the person’s preference and medical needs, they may continue with another medication for addiction treatment (MAT) such as Suboxone, or they may choose not to take any opioid use disorder medications.
