Dana Point Methadone Detox

Medical Detoxification in Orange County

Methadone is commonly used to help patients ease of opiate and opioid addictions. Unfortunately, methadone can also be addictive, and some people find themselves dealing with a new problem while they were trying to tackle their original addiction.

It may seem counterintuitive to undergo detoxification when your previous detox led to your current addiction. The truth is that recovery is a continuous process. It’s a difficult journey, but it is always worth it in the end. If your previous addiction treatment led to a methadone addiction, then it is time to find a new facility where you can finally receive the attentive and personalized treatment you need.

At Dana Point Rehab Campus, we work closely with clients to address the heart of their addiction and substance abuse struggles. Contact us today at (949) 347-5466 to learn more about our detox and rehabilitation services.

What to Expect During Methadone Withdrawal

Methadone is a mild opiate, and is frequently used to wean people of heroine, morphine, and painkillers. Symptoms of methadone withdrawal are similar to opiate withdrawal, and may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Diarrhea
  • Hallucinations
  • Cravings
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Sweating

Methadone withdrawal is rarely life-threatening, but it can be extremely uncomfortable. However, the more discomfort withdrawal causes, the higher to risk or relapse. For this reason, it is recommended you detoxify in a medical detox center where medical professionals can help you manage the symptoms.

Seamlessly Transition from Detox to Rehabilitation

Unlike many other detox centers, Dana Point Rehab Campus is a facility providing both detoxification and rehabilitation services. Every client undergoes a thorough evaluation process during detox. This information is used to develop a personalized addiction treatment plan so that you can begin the next phase of your recovery right after detoxification.

Admissions to Dana Point Rehab Campus are quick and confidential. Call us today at (949) 347-5466 for a free consultation. You can also contact us online.
