Methadone Withdrawal and Weaning Help
Methadone (Dolophine, Methadose) was marketed in the United
States in 1947 and its ability to reduce opiate cravings was
recognized. By the mid-1960s heroin addiction was rampant and
researchers at the Rockefeller Foundation found that Methadone
stopped an addict’s obsessive need for heroin. Protocols were
developed that became Methadone clinics. However, Methadone
works by binding to the same receptors as other Opioid drugs and
what was thought to be the cure for heroin has also left many
with Methadone Withdrawal Symptoms when they attempt to Gett off
Methadone. Our Prescription Experts are often asked how to Wean
off Methadone slowly to minimizes the Methadone withdrawal and
at Point of Return we use all-natural potent nutraceuticals to
diminish the withdrawal symptoms and we determine taper rates on
an individual basis during our assessment. Contact our nonprofit
to see if an at-home program is right for you.

Methadone History and Information
Weaning off Methadone can be extremely painful for many people. While slowly Tapering the Methadone can ease the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, many find they need help to diminish the anxiety, irritability, insomnia, restlessness, tremors, shaking and other symptoms that are similar to Opioid Withdrawal. Our program has controlled the Methadone Withdrawal symptoms through high-potency Nutraceuticals and this natural approach also eases symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, fear, tremors, etc. Our nonprofit has been helping people for over 15 years in 81 countries. We can help you too.
The 1950s brought a government approach to heroin addiction and the civil confinement approach led to extremely high relapse rates. Methadone maintenance was considered a safer way to handle opiate addiction. President Nixon was concerned about the influx of soldiers returning from Vietnam as heroin addicts and changed the government policy away from strictly punitive to treatment.
German scientists first synthesized Methadone during World War II due to a shortage of Morphine. Americans controlled Methadone after the war ended and Eli Lilly began manufacturing Methadone under the brand name Dolophine in 1947. In the 1950s American doctors began using Methadone for the treatment of opioid dependence.
Today approximately a half million people are participating in Methadone maintenance treatment programs, but Methadone has a dark side and remains controversial. Methadone is still an opioid and highly addictive with debilitating withdrawal symptoms.
Methadone works by binding to the same receptors as other opioid drugs such as heroin or Oxycontin and because Methadone has a long half-life, it can stay in the body for 1-3 days but builds up quickly and if combined with other central nervous system agents there is a high risk of overdose. This has been a serious concern since the painkilling effects only last up to 8 hours but the remaining metabolites of Methadone can stay up to 59 hours. Due to the long half-life, if the weaning process is done properly the symptoms can be controlled. It is possible to Get off Methadone, contact our Prescription Experts for Help.
