Help for Methadone Withdrawal adult content

I posted a while back about my brother. He is a heroin addict, and has recently been ready for treatment. He wound up doing an outpatient detox. They use methadone and step you down slowly. Today was his last day of that, and he is having terrible withdrawal from the final dose of methadone.

Does anyone know of anything that might help him feel better?

(He is on wait list for a few rehabs, so hopefully those beds will come available soon.)

  • Does he have a therapist or some other medical professional like a counselor he can be in touch with?

  • Only the detox place. They gave him some Catapres and Trazodone, but pretty much said that he would probably be coming back for more methodone, which he doesn't want to do. . . he wants off.
