Another option you might want to look into is subutex/suboxone. I, like a lot of people, just cannot take off work, or make the world stop spinning for a week while we punish ourselves for something we didn't ask for. Subutex gives you the option of getting off the oxys in a relatively painless way. It's the way I had to go, and everyone's different. But I couldn't physically stand the w/d's, and I have a family to take care of and a job to go to. It's something worth looking into. I was taking 60mg of methadone a day.. Now I'm almost off of the suboxone.. down to 4mgs a day. Been clean for almost 4 months.. and that's a good feeling.
