Tom,I must start off by saying. Methadone is horrible to detox. It's the hardest. I did not get on methadone to detox. I take it because it is medicine>> like insulin to the diabetic, steriods(cortisone) to the rhematoid arthritic (my spelling I know),heart meds to the person with heart disease,blood pressure medicine to hypertensive, dilantin to the epileptic,etc. & etc.
No one says to this group of people its hard to stop insulin,cortisone,dilantin,etc.
