If someone is drinking alcohol
to help get them through methadone
withdrawals, is that person still going to be getting rid of the methadone from their system whilst getting rid of the alcohol too? Or will they have to process the alcohol before their body can continue to get shot of the methadone?
I ask because someone told me that drinking alcohol will just prolong the time that a person has to endure withdrawal
symptoms from stopping methadone.
I know many people swear by cannabis
when going cold turkey
off methadone, so can I assume that alcohol would be similar to cannabis in that the body would be able to process the cannabis/alcohol at the same time as the methadone?
What about if someone went, say, 3 days with no methadone and then used a bag of gear, there would be no withdrawals from just one bag of gear and would that help by allowing one or a couple more days of being free from methadone withdrawals?
And should there be a 'withdrawal' prefix?
