hey whats up,thats not a nasty enough habit to take the chance on getting a methadone habit. i think if your not going to a detox unit, than taper off the oxys and leave the dope alone all together(you never know what your getting) . if you are going to use the methadone i wouldnt give more than 30-40 mg a day for two or three days and drop 5mg a day until off. other wise you could end up with a new way harder to kick habit, trust me on that one. but i think if you get the phone book out and start calling and asking you can find a place to detox without insurance or upfront money,maybe free. call the local hospitals and ask them . theyre good about pointing people in the right direction .good luck
