How long does it take to wean off methadone?

I’m going to come off methadone and I’ve heard it’s best to taper off slowly. There’s so much info out there that I’m not exactly sure what’s right. Can anyone help?

The best results I’ve seen are when people reduce their dose every 10 – 14 days, start by lowering it by 10% of your dose each time. When you’re at about a third of your original dose, half that. You’re looking at up to six months but you’ll have a good chance of successfully coming off it for good.
