Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

hi there-
If you really can't deal w/ the w/d...i would try an inpatient detox if you can..they wean you off the stuff w/ methadone or sub..or you can see if you can find a doc who will detox you outpatient w/ suboxone..if you need maitainence-sub is great but you will still have to come of this med..
Im on suboxone-4 mgs. daily..i detoxed off heroin w/ it..not the easiest detox but bearable-but i was addicted for years-so i decieded a maitainence plan would be best for me.
How much were you taking-and what for?
