Methadone Detox - Meth Addiction or Methadone Treatment?

The phrase “methadone detox” has an inherent duality. When it comes to online searches, it seems the phrase “methadone detox” can refer to an individual who is prescribed methadone while undergoing heroin detox or it can refer to an individual who requires detox for a methadone addiction. Although methadone is a prescription medication, it is highly addictive and when abused can have disastrous side effects and consequences.

Search frequency research examines phrases like “methadone detox” in an attempt to quantify and analyze query numbers for these phrases in a one-year time period. In this study, several phrases have been combined, “methadone detox”, “meth detox”, “methamphetamine detox”, and “crystal meth detox”, and graphed together in numerical order.

Treatment for Methadone Detox and Related Phrases Outscore All Others

In Graph 1, the phrase “treatment for methadone” ranks 4th for the most commonly searched phrase. Added to related search phrases like the number one ranked, “methadone detox” (15,384), the overwhelming majority of individuals seem to be searching for information on methadone detox as opposed to information on methamphetamine detox.
