My husband has had chronic pain for 8 yrs now. He got addicted to pain meds then herion. He has been on methadone for almost 2 yrs now. His current dose is 180mg. He also had another addiction surface about a year ago. Crack. He could stay clean for months then relapse. during the time he was using he would steal from me and his parents. We have had to have him put in jail 2 previous times over the year and he would stay 5-6 days with no methadone.He would tell me how bad he felt leg cramps,chills,fever,stomach ache and so on. 5 days ago we put him back in jail this time he will be there for a few months. I just want to know how long does it take for the withdrawals to stop?
Is there anything to help the withdrawals that he could get in jail?
