methadone for 20 yrs with 2 seperate yrs off inbetween any advice?

please help me with some advice ,i have read a lot of your threads and know about the vitamins but could do with a reminder.My situation is i am a single dad for 18 yrs so have not been able to go rehab.I was also using on top but have now stopped 5 days and cut from 50mls 1mg/1/mg methadone to 40 but am also on 50mg valium and 1 20mg temazepan but only been on them for a year.I know i can detox from tablets after ive come off of methadone as believe they r helping me down now?Im hoping to get down to 5 or 10 by the 3 day reducing programme on my own but i have counselling and regular support just not telling them as they wont let me go down from 5o.I am definetley in the right frame off mind to do it but as a very long time user do u have any Positive advice you could give me and thanxs everyone for your letters here its good not to feel alone in this fight for the soul.The pharmacutical companies are satanic as far as im concerned but God willing I WILL BE FREE!!!!I BELIEVE I MUST DO IT THIS YEAR 2012 BEFORE DECEMBER if i have any chance of freeing my inner self back to a meditation standing!please any advice positive much appreciated?Rainbow
