Stacy,
I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this. It seems like you genuinely want to get over your addiction, and that alone is the first step in doing so.

Have you considered trying methadone? I'm not sure how familiar you are with it but in case you aren't, it's basically a treatment that is used to help opiate addicts quit. It's most commonly used for those addicted to heroin, but helps to curb the cravings of all opiate drugs. My boyfriend was addicted to vicoden for 2 years and is having excellent results with methadone. He no longer takes vicoden, and is about 2 weeks away from finishing his methadone treatment. If you are committed to quitting, you will most likely be successful. my thoughts are with you, and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
