Better: do before it is too late. Overdose on Opiod dependency is easy as tolerance develops. Suggest an impatient rehabilitation or Subaxone MD or both ASAP

NA and/or rehab: Join Narcotics Anonymous and get a sponsor and go to meetings. Call drug rehab programs in your area as well. You are making a smart, wise, healthy decision to get off opiates. Do not get on Lyrica, (pregabalin) Neurontin or Clonazepam either, as they have dependency issues as well. Avoid alcohol and any other addicting meds, too. Exercise is a huge help. Stop nicotine while you are detoxing from opiates.
