Rapid Methadone Detox, Ohio
Methadone is a synthetic opioid that is primarily used to help addicts overcome opioid dependency. Doctors in Germany developed the drug in the 1930s, but it didn't make an appearance on the drug market in the United States until 1947. Although methadone is used to treat addiction, it can also be addictive on its own. Methadone's effect on the brain is similar to that of heroine or morphine, and people who consume the drug for extended periods of time can become physically and psychologically dependent. The drug methadone may also be known as Methadose, Diskets, Dolophine or Amidone.
Doctors treating people with drug addictions prescribe methadone frequently. Because it is such a common drug, patients often develop a false sense of security about its safety, even when they are acquiring methadone without a prescription. However, even though methadone can be used to overcome certain addictions, it can also be very dangerous. Every patient will react differently to methadone consumption, and many patients will develop a higher tolerance for the drug as they continue to take it. As a patient's tolerance builds, a higher dose is necessary to provide the same effect. Eventually, the patient is consuming dangerous amounts of methadone, and medical intervention is necessary.
People who become addicted to drugs like methadone need professional help to overcome the dependency. Although multiple detoxification options are available, one of the best programs for treating methadone addiction is Anesthesia Assisted Detoxification.
