Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board


Hey dog,
Don't worry about slipping up, it happens all the time. Just start over.
It sounds like your doc is right about the sub, too many other problems associated with it IMO unless it's a last choice. The amounts you are taking may seem small to others but every drug affects everyone differently. I am still struggling with cold turkey off methadone from an amount that seems tiny to some but it has been really rough for me.
I can tell you really want to quit so keep on trying. Try to keep friends around that DON'T have anything other than friendship to give you though.
Good luck.
