Detox is where a doctor clears out all drugs from a persons system.
Detox is the first step in any drug treatment plan.
The doctors will then give smaller amounts, or other drugs to control withdrawl symptoms
Methadone is also an addictive opiate, but it is a different type of dependency.
People addicted to illegal drugs often have trouble adjusting to normal life due to withdrawl
Medical supervisors administer methadone to curb the addiction/withdrawl symptoms
This is a residential rehabilitation center.
Depending on the severity of the addiction people might stay here for 30 days or more
Recovering addicts live in a dorm style setting depending on their addiction
In conclusion there are many forms of rehabilitation, but unfortunately there is a stigma around going through it.
