Hi i went in to rehab, one of the reasons i was there was painkiller addiction. Mine was tramadol. As previously written, it will depend what you are taking and how long you have been taking it, also if there is a history of other substance abuse, i.e. alcohol, illegal drugs? I was weaned off the tablets gradually and was supplemented with librium to take the edge off the withdrawal effects. The rehab i went to was in South Africa, so i can't say that all treatment facilities will work the same way. The way i came off was quite smooth and effective. It is very unlikely you be stopped cold turkey. Unless you are in immediate danger of organ failure for example. Good luck.
