One thing that most people will tell you, however, is that any detox program should be medically supervised as you're most certainly going to feel some sort of physical and then mental withdrawal.
How did you get hooked in the first place? And is this the only drug you've been using?
well initially I was introduced at age 16, I'm 21 now, I fractured my elbow and was prescribed 60 of 5mg percocet. I was hardly in pain, and was confused the doctor would prescribe such a large dose. However, I went along. Eventually I ran out, and found another source to fuel my habit. my habit continued for a few months, and I was not usong everyday, I would only used at parties or on the weekend. My supply dwindled and I just stopped, with very little mental withdrawl.
At 19 I began a new relationship, he knew a pain management doctor who would see me, and prescribe whatever I wanted. Shortly after I began taking oxy consistently. I was hooked, and eventually he was too. His tolerance skyrocketed and he began taking 60mg at once, multiple times a day. He is completely clean now and is getting out of rehab today. I don't want rehab, or assisted detox, I also can't afford it. I'm considering tapering down, and maybe taking valium(prescribed for anxiety, I dont mix with oxy) for insomnia.
I am on no other drugs/medication except for valium. I only take that if the rare situation happens where I run out of oxy. I never mix, for the chronic fear of overdose/interactions.
