I have a dear friend who was a heavy heroin addict and has been clean (and on Methadone) for 2 years. She is wanting to come off the methadone, too. She is active in a 12 step program and wants her mind to be completely clean. I know nothing about methadone. She is looking at going in to a treatment center--the same one that she got off heroin at--to get completely off methadone. I would love to hear experience about it. @AleFirmani , do you still take methadone? I want to be as supportive of my friend as possible, and know that it is not going to be easy.
