I would suggest you taper off the 'done.  you could talk to a sub doc, but what good is it going to do you if you get on that for years to come?

freedom from opioids cost some time and quite a bit of agony,either way. sooner or later you will have to pay the price, regardless if it is stalled off by a short term sub program. because if you go long term, then you will be in the same boat you are now.

also you can check out the health pages in the upper right hand corner of this page. look at peoples profiles for journals too.

good luck which ever route you chose

I came off of methadone and was planning to go to sub... but the taper I did was very successful and it turned out to be unneccessary.

I'd advise against the sub, but everyone is different - my way worked for me.
