Methadone drug detox’ is a term that refers to two different types of drug addiction treatment. Most often, the term refers to a treatment for opiate addiction, and more specifically, heroin addiction. Used as a replacement drug, methadone is legal and more easily used to help you detox off of heroin because it is more easily controlled. Unfortunately, methadone is also an opiate and a drug of addiction itself, so some people become addicted to it and need a methadone drug detox to help them stop using the drug.
