Our Methadone Detox Program

Our Methadone Detox Program

At Inland Detox, we do not offer methadone as a solution for heroin or prescription pain addiction. Instead, our goal is to effectively help those who no longer wish to use methadone detox safely and comfortably from it. We believe that former users of heroin and prescription pain medications, who have been prescribed a methadone taper regimen, would not only benefit from detoxing from methadone completely, but actually prefer to live life without the use of a substitute for heroin or prescription pain medications. Our methadone detox center can help you through the withdrawal process and lay the groundwork for a life free from both methadone and other drugs of abuse.

The Danger of Methadone Use

There are two significant dangers associated with methadone use: (1) the fast onset of physical and psychological dependency and; (2) the severe withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop. We have come to find that many users of methadone had no idea how physically and psychologically addicting methadone can be. Moreover, many of these same people detail that the withdrawal symptoms from methadone are not only similar to heroin or other prescription opioid pain medications, but actually worse. This is why so many people that use methadone as a taper medication end up using a methadone clinic for years: they simply cannot tolerate the effects of withdrawal.

How Does The Detox Process Work?

When you arrive in southern California, you’ll be evaluated by a doctor to determine whether your condition is appropriate for clinical detox. While at Inland Detox, you will go through a process called stabilization; this entails going through the withdrawal process in a comfortable, quiet setting. Once your condition is stable, you will be referred for further treatment, generally in an inpatient residential setting.

Our Approach to Methadone Detox

Inland Detox knows that people can live free from addiction and we offer a safe, effective means of detoxing our clients that use methadone. We understand that inpatient methadone detox can take longer than detoxing from heroin and many other drugs and our clients should expect a detox period of 5-10 days.

We treat our clients as individuals. Each client admitted for methadone detox and withdrawal symptoms will have an individualized methadone treatment program focused on safely stopping the use of methadone. Our treatment methods target the symptoms of withdrawal to maximize the comfort of those we treat. We also include both individual and group counseling as part of the detox process, as beginning to address the underlying causes of addiction can help kick-start the recovery process and prepares individuals for the more intensive counseling environment of residential treatment.

Our belief and what we’ve seen work best, long-term, is a safe methadone detox programfollowed by residential drug rehabilitation or intensive outpatient care program. Ultimately, those that find the greatest success and live free from methadone and other opioid medications regularly attend group counseling and/or one-on-one therapy after their treatment in a residential or intensive outpatient rehab program.
