Methadone Drug Addiction
Methadone, a form of opioid medication, is a useful drug that has helped numerous Heroin and Opiate addicts quit their deadly addictions but at a price. Addicts may not be abusing hard drugs but they often get addicted to the Methadone in its place. The ultimate goal of any treatment program is to get the addict away from any sort of mind altering substance and to help them lead a completely sober and healthy lifestyle. Its generic name is methadone hydrochloride.
How Do I Know if I’m Addicted?
If you are taking Methadone you are probably doing so in attempt to quit using a more dangerous substance so you will have an idea of what it is like to be out of control when it comes to a mind altering substance. Methadone isn’t meant to be a permanent solution to a drug problem, it is meant to help wean the body off of a more harmful substance and then be weaned from the body itself. Some users have a hard time quitting Methadone when they no longer need it and that is where a Methadone treatment program is required.
There Is Hope
Whether you are a new Methadone user who has just discovered that they have a problem or if you are a long time addict that needs to turn their life around, Meridian Treatment Solutions has the perfect Methadone treatment program for you. If you catch your problem early enough or if you have an incredible support system, you may be able to overcome your addiction with the help of an outpatient program. If your use is more long term and ingrained into your daily habits, you may get more benefit from an inpatient program.
What Can I Expect?
When you enter into any sort of Methadone treatment program you will have to go through an initial detoxification process. This process can be eased with alternate drugs that give almost no euphoric effect and therefore are easier for the addicts to quit using, yet they still ease the symptoms of withdrawal.
When you complete the first step of your sobriety journey you will be offered daily activities that are designed to help you develop the skills you will need to enter back into your old routines but with healthy and constructive habits. When someone finds that they have a Methadone addiction, it is generally because they have some other issue that needs to be taken care of before they can truly be free from drugs. Meridian Treatment Solutions believes that the patient should be treated from the inside out and that activities such as meditation, yoga, group therapy, and individual counseling will help each patient identify the reason they have become addicted and help them overcome that obstacle. The mind, body, and soul must be healed before the patient can avoid temptation and channel their stress and anxieties into positive means rather than their previous drug of choice. When patients leave Meridian Treatment Solutions, they will be able to say that they didn’t waste a second of their time and that they have learned how to live a sober life.
