Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

I am an addict and I have chronic pain, I would be on pain pills for life if I wer not an addict, because I am I will have to choose a route like methadone or sub because I will abuse the pills. Most folks can take their meds and never become addicted or show addictive behavior. But.... everyone who takes opiates for an extended ammount of time will become dependant and will suffer withdraw symptoms if it is discontinued suddenly. Hop down to the Chronic Pain board and you can see what Im saying.
