My son has just asked for help for an addiction to Vicodin. He says he's been taking 2 pills a day but we haven't been able to pinpoint how long, but it's probably been more than 6 months. We called his doctor who said he definitely will need to detox and to go the the ER. The only treatment/rehab place in the area seems to be a methadone clinic,and I'd hate to see him go from one addiction to another. What course of detox should be tried first? What sort of detox should we avoid?
