In brief: The idea is to not
Break anything! rather putting all of the pieces of a healthy life together and then asking your doc to help you wean off is the way to go.

In brief: Two Models
There are two models when it comes to the treatment for opiate dependency.
The first is called: abstinence based model which means the addict does not take any opiates and becomes involved in various other therapies, either inpatient or outpatient. The other is called: harm reduction model which utilizes replacement therapy with opiates like suboxone until that can be gradually tapered off.
