Looking for A place to taper off methadone! I’m in Wv

Postby jessystr22 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 4:00 pm

I’m currently on 72 mg of methadone and want to medically taper off methadone. I have state insurance but that’s it. I can’t affird to go out of state. Does anyone know of any other alternatives? :puppy-dog:

Need a bit more info before providing any advice.

How long have you been on mmt? This is the single most important question & will dictate how you go about getting off.
Are you getting it from a clinic?

What is your age and do you have any health problems? High Blood pressure? Depression/anxiety? Chronic pain?
What other medications are you taking?

All of the above will figure into your detox.

I tapered and detoxed off 80mg of methadone in 2007. So I know how to do this & do it with minimal discomfort. It takes time & patience. There is no quick detox for long acting opiates such as methadone & suboxone.
