Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board

It has been almost a year since posting on these boards.
I was addicted to Oxycontins, 5, 80mg per day.
Thanks to a supportive wife, a good therapist and NA meetings I am staying clean. Oh yes and the Doctor that knew what he was doing when he put me on methadone for about a month. Without that I could not have made it through the WD's.
Through the NA meetings I have made some real friends. They know what I have been through. They never judge and they are only a phone call away 24/7.
I had tried many times to stop using on my own with no succsess.
I know now that NA meetings and my higher power are the only two things that will keep me clean. If you are a true hard core drugie like me there is no other option.
(We are only as sick as the secrets we keep.)
Regards to all.
