Facts About Detoxification
How long does methadone detox last?
Each person has specific physical needs, addiction levels and medical situations so there is not a common set formula for detox. As your detoxification progresses you will receive updates from our medical team.

The thought of withdrawal symptoms can be really intimidating. Firstly, our programs are specifically designed to remove drugs from your system. In addition, our medical team will work on a detoxification program that reduces withdrawal issues.
Here are some of the symptoms you’re likely to experience during the initial withdrawal period:
- Gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps
- Severe mood swings
- Teary eyes and a runny nose
- Muscular pains and discomfort
- Cold sweats, hot sweats, goosebumps
