Much like with Suboxone, Methadone can be a life-safer for people struggling with opiate addiction. By replacing heroin or high-dose painkillers with a long-lasting, legal alternative, many people are able to live a normal life again. The problem, however, is that methadone itself is a highly addictive and mood-altering narcotic. And, it’s hard to stop because even just one dose of methadone stays in your body for a month.
Traditional Methadone Detox programs can be slow and painful as the drug is cleansed from your body, taking weeks away from your job, family and life. The outpatient RecoverUS program instead uses non-addictive drugs and sedatives to completely remove the narcotics which have become attached to your brain’s receptors in as little as eight days.
