Please help me... Talk to me and help me through this. I have been reading alot from melinda 7. 5, been theredone that and a few more so please friends, help your sister out. Im so very scared :(
I have been addicted to painkillers for 10 years. Last month I completed a 10 day outpatient ambulatory detox clinic where they give you suboxone to get you through the first withdrawls. What really sucks is that you have post acute withdrawls for several months after you stop taking the pills. They typically last 3 or so days at a time off and on. My whole body hurts right now and yet I know I will not use. It is not an option for me anymore. It is psychological at this point. I would suggest looking into a detox program with suboxone to get you through the first part. After that, you just have to educate yourself as much as possible on relapse prevention. I am not going to lie this is hard as hell, but I too have lost alot due to my addiction. Now I am gaining back my freedom, more and more every day. Good luck and god bless.
