METHADONE DETOX PROGRAM
New Beginnings Recovery Center (NBRC) offers an outpatient detox program for those dependant on methadone. Since methadone is an opiate, we follow similar methods of detoxification as our Opiate Detox Program. We have become specialists in methadone detoxification, for this drug presents it's own set of unique characteristics that make it a challenge to walk from. Whether prescribed for pain or if you are enrolled in a maintenance program, NBRC can help you become free of this dependency. We are licensed by the State of Florida to provide Adult and Adolescent Detoxification.
Methadone detoxification is now much easier than you ever thought possible!
Detoxification from methadone poses additional issues that require an experienced and knowledgeable medical staff. NBRC has the staff, knowledge, experience and ability to detox methadone patients on an Out-Patient basis at a faster rate and more comfortably than ever before. Detoxification from methadone takes longer than from short acting opiates such as heroin, oxycodone, Vicodin® or Lorcet®.
NBRC utilizes various methods to manage methadone and opiate withdrawal symptoms to make the entire detoxification process as comfortable as it can possibly be. Having successfully detoxed hundreds of patients in recent years, our finely tuned medication and treatment protocols are extremely refined and highly effective. Let's just say we have it down to a "science". Keeping patients comfortable throughout the entire detox process is our obsession. We do this by utilizing a number of extremely effective medications and treatment methods.
Here are the some of the ways we manage methadone withdrawal symptoms and achieve your complete restoration:
The most valuable service we can offer to methadone addicted patients is the "hand holding" that takes place from the beginning to the end of the entire detox cycle. Many patients have stated that this invaluable coaching is what made the difference between success and failure.
How it Works:
A intake and assessment is conducted and the patient explained the NBRC program, the various treatment options, and the entire detox process is discussed.
Pre-Procedure Medical Evaluation
The detoxification process begins with all NBD patients receiving a complete medical history and physical examination. This include a urine toxicology screen. Our doctors remain a part of the multi-disciplinary team that cares for the patient throughout detoxification
Induction Phase - Beginning the Process of Detoxification
The Induction Phase is the medically monitored start up of detox. Interim medications are prescribed for a period of time initially to allow transition from methadone to Suboxone® without any discomfort. After close monitoring, the patient is started on Suboxone®. Other medications are prescribed at this time to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, assist with sleep and reduce anxiety.
Stabilization Phase – Controlling the Cravings
The Stabilization Phase has begun when the patient no longer has cravings for opiates or any withdrawal symptoms.
Taper Phase – Getting Free
The Taper Phase is reached when the patient is stabilized on Suboxone® The patient is then stepped-down from the Suboxone® therapy until they are drug-free.
The Post Acute Withdrawal Phase
The Taper Phase followed by the Post Acute Withdrawal Phase. Suboxone® and other medications handle the "acute" symptoms during the Taper Phase. After patients "jump off" Suboxone® or other symptom managing medications, different medications are introduced to manage the Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS). NBRC utilizes a host of medications to address any remaining PAWS. We also start patients on a regimen of various amino acids and vitamins during the Taper Phase to promote brain health and to prepare the brain for the ultimate event of stopping all forms of opiates and methadone.
OPTIONAL OUT-PATIENT COUNSELING THERAPY
Although support counseling is included in the cost of the detox, patients have the option to attend an optional outpatient counseling program while in detox run by a team of experienced licensed Certified Addiction Professionals. We offer several group therapy options that will fit any schedule.
NBRC offers a variety of Psychiatric Services from Evaluation and Follow Up Treatment. Psychiatric Services are utilized to treat patients with Dual Diagnosis Disorder, or Co-Occurring Disorder. Frequently mental health disorders can lie underneath and in some cases fuel substance dependency. Some of the therapies utilized include Psychotherapy, Bio-Feedback Therapy, Hypnosis Therapy and Medication Management
All patients enrolled in our programs, have the option for a no cost Psychiatric Evaluation performed by a Board Certified Psychiatric staff member in addition to the basic services of each program. Ongoing Psychiatric Services are also an option for our patients.
So now those that have struggled with depression, anxiety or any other co-occurring disorder, have the opportunity to get the substance dependency and the underlying psychiatric issues treated concurrently.
Methadone Patient Testimonies
METHADONE DETOX PATIENT
"It was a very positive experience. My comfort and well being was always first on everyone’s mind. Everyone especially Melanie, Dennis, and the Dr. made me feel very comfortable. They answered all my questions and kept me up to date on all procedures. It was great. A lot easier then I thought. I had very minimal symptoms which were nothing compared to the way methadone has been making me feel. The doctors were the best because they explained everything very well and made me feel very comfortable. I think you have everything down 100%. I don’t think anything can be done any better. Thanks so much."

METHADONE FLY-IN PATIENT - "Fly-In" Out-of-Towner
"I flew in from Phila. Pa and I've been through many other detox programs and New Beginnings Detox is hands down the best detox experience I have ever had. I stayed at a hotel across the street and it was very convenient. I was comfortable and taken care of completely. My comfort always came first and everything was done to see that I was never ill. The therapy was a perfect balance of all reasons I got to this point and what to do with this new phase of my new life. The medical staff treated me with dignity and respect and put put my well being first. Great value for the money"

METHADONE DETOX PATIENT
"I found New Beginnings online and gave it a try - and it works! No pain and discomfort. I feel like a completely different person. Thank you New Beginnings for your patience and caring staff. The doctor knew exactly what to prescribe. I can't believe that just 2 months ago I was taking 90 mg of methadone. I have been through 4 different detox programs and it never worked, but this does. They are all very understanding, compassionate, they will help you. My life has totally turned around"

METHADONE DETOX PATIENT
"My experience with New Beginnings Recovery Center has been great. Actually amazing! I am very happy I made the choice to do this program. There have been significant changes in my life since I started. The medically supervised detox was very smooth. I was very surprised how easy and manageable it was. I was told exactly what to expect and it has been right on. Honestly, I was not happy about having to do the counseling groups, but after attending just a few I love coming to group. I look forward to it. Dennis and Don are very knowledgeable about addiction therapy and are fun to talk to. The medical staff has been very friendly and helpful. Overall, I think this was an amazing value for my money."
