Our adult daughter was on methadone (clinic for opiate w/drawal) for five months. She stopped going at the end of February when she lost her job. We put her in bed and sat by her side for five days while she endured leg aches and a headache. She didn't get sick to her stomach. She had been on opiates for two years prior to going to the clinic w/her boyfriend. She moved home to get away from it all. We held vigil and my husband took off work to be by her side. She has been drug free for four weeks. We don't know if it's still in her system, but one night she had two drinks and was really drunk! Had to go to bed! So, be careful. YOu can get off it all w/some 24 support. She said it's not as hard as she thought it would be. Good luck to you.
