In brief: Withdrawl

There is no easy way.
You treat the symptoms which depending on how long and how much you have used can be very intense. There are programs, such as clarity detox, which can achieve an immediate outpatient opiod treatment. You need alot of support during these times!

In brief: Opiate Withdrawal

First, congratulations on making this decision.
Second, if you have had a long or complicated history you may very well need to withdraw while in the care of medical professionals in a detox setting. A good addiction specialist may put you on Naltrexone or other medications to reduce the cravings and help you remain abstinent. I wish you well on this healing you are embarking on.

In brief: Take less

The more you take , the higher your tolerance so the harder it is to get off meds.
