Richmond Methadone Detox

The Coleman Institute provides Methadone Detox Options in Richmond, VA

At its best, methadone can be a life saver for people struggling with opiate addiction. By replacing heroin or high doses of opiate painkillers with a long-lasting, legal alternative, many people are able to begin living a normal life again.

The problem is, methadone is also a highly addictive, mood-altering narcotic. And it’s incredibly challenging to detox from — even harder than heroin or prescription opiates. In fact, one dose of methadone can take well over a month to leave your body.

No matter how badly you want to stop using, a month of withdrawal symptoms would be hard for almost anyone to manage, especially when you have a life to live and responsibilities to uphold. As a result, many people relapse, even if their methadone clinic is willing to help them taper slowly.

Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between suffering through a long, painful detox and using methadone for the rest of your life.

The Coleman Institute in Richmond, VA understands the unique circumstances methadone patients face. So, we adapted our Accelerated Opiate Detox to meet your needs. Because methadone stays in your body for so much longer than other drugs, we extend our outpatient treatment to eight days rather than the typical three. With our help, you can detox safely, comfortably and quickly — as caring medical professionals stand by your side throughout the process.
