I have an opoid addiction/dependance. For the last 5 yrs I have taken many opoids for legitimate severe back problems which I have had surgery. Actually I'm not horribly concerned cause I feel if it helps me get out of bed and get through the day it is worth it. I am thinking of getting off of them to see how I feel. I suspect I will feel worse since I'm still in pain even with the drugs. My question is how do I know if I should check into a facility or attempt to quit using with the help of something like suboxone.
