Methadone is a synthetic opioid that is typically prescribed for relief of chronic, severe pain. Over time, the doses become larger and larger and the body and brain become reliant on methadone. Like other opioids, misuse of methadone can result in overdose and death.

It is also used in the treatment for those who are addicted to heroin as it can reduce cravings. When administered during heroin detox to reduce withdrawal symptoms, it can help someone detox from heroin, but is a double-edged sword because methadone is also very addictive. Often, individuals who detox from heroin using methadone overcome their heroin addiction, but become addicted to methadone. With the help and support of the licensed medical professionals at Scottsdale Detox Center, detoxing from methadone can be easier and safer.


Symptoms of methadone withdrawal can include:

  • Cramps    
  • Restlessness, anxiety
  • Watering eyes, runny nose
  • Profuse sweating
  • Seizures
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Elevated heart rate and blood pressure


The possibility of experiencing these symptoms can make the thought of quitting methadone daunting, but the long-term benefits of a life free from the drug can greatly outweigh the short-term discomfort of detoxing.

Withdrawal symptoms from methadone typically begin 24-60 hours after the last dose. Many facilities will not detox from methadone unless the patient is taking less than 40mg. At Scottsdale Detox Center, we are able to safely detox patients from higher levels of methadone.

We provide a safe, medically-supervised detox, focused on managing symptoms of withdrawal in a safe and comfortable environment. Our medical team can ensure that withdrawal symptoms are safely managed as well as assist with the resources needed for ongoing recovery from methadone dependence.

Enrolling in a certified medical detox program is essential for methadone detox because the risk of relapse and the health implications are high. At Scottsdale Detox Center, our fully staffed medical team will monitor you or your loved one 24 hours a day to work towards a complete and successful detox. We keep our clients safe and comfortable throughout this recovery phase by administering medication to limit withdrawal symptoms. Our primary goal at all times is to get you or your loved one on the right road to recovery.
