Am I Powerless over Methadone Addiction?

Am I Powerless over Methadone Addiction?Methadone addiction can seem over-powering and can leave a person feeling hopeless. Methadone is a synthetic opioid that is frequently used to prevent withdrawal symptoms while someone is attempting to detox from other opiates. However, it has the potential to cause an addiction itself. When it is abused, methadone can cause serious complications and side effects, so addiction can have significant negative consequences. Though methadone’s hold on a person’s life can be powerful, many people have been able to recover fully and lead happy, healthy lives after addiction. No matter how overwhelmed you may feel because of the addiction, you have the power to overcome it with the help of others. When you reach out for and accept help you can get your life back.

How to Beat Methadone Addiction

Without a strong support system it is unlikely that you will recover from methadone addiction. While recovery is possible, it is not easy. The first step in getting clean is reaching out for help. Find someone you trust and be honest with him or her about your addiction problem and your desire to overcome it. This person might be a friend, family member, doctor, religious leader, or perhaps a trained addiction counselor such as the ones that can be reached at our helpline.

How Methadone Rehabilitation Works

Although some people can endure methadone withdrawals on their own, willpower alone is rarely enough to be successful long-term. Those who are perhaps able to get clean on their own are unlikely to stay clean without receiving further treatment. There are almost always underlying root issues that will perpetuate the addiction until they are uncovered and dealt with. For instance, unhealthy thought patterns and mental disorders are common root issues that will not go away on their own. Rehab uses elements such as counseling, therapy, support group attendance, and drug education classes to treat the whole person in an individualized manner and provide the person with the skills needed to get and remain clean for a lifetime. Rehab also provides needed support in an environment that is conducive to recovery. Rehab has the potential to work effectively in your life and empower you to get free from methadone. Recovery can be a reality for you. You can get your life back and we can help you get there. There’s no reason to wait, so get help and begin your recovery today.
