CHINESE HERBS and ACCUPUNCTURE seem to be two of
the best ways to treat withdrawal syndrome, and the long-term "post accute withdrawal syndrome" (or "abstinance syndrome"). methadone
has a long-term post accute withdrawal period - sometimes it NEVER goes away. I've heard of
people getting off of
methdone for a few years, and after being miserable the whole time they get back on methadone
- why be miserable when a medication allows you to feel "normal" again?
