    If you have been addicted for appx 2 yrs now, you will probably have better success by going to a rehab. There are many different types of rehabs. Some will keep you for 30 days, some programs go as long as 90 days. It all depends on the individual. You will definetely need therapy as well. You will feel overwhelming depression once you stop the pain meds, its because your brain is trying to adapt to not having the pills. The mental struggle is a lot harder than the physical dependency. You may want to go to a hospital that deals with substance abuse once you begin to detox too, cause you will feel aweful. I know your in college, but, getting clean off those pain meds is more important, so if you have to put school off for a couple of months, then so be it. Once you quit, you may not feel normal for a couple of months, it can take that long. If you have the money, there are clinics around that deal specifically with pain med addiction, and the doctor will put you on a regimend using an opiate blocker called suboxin(thats spelled wrong, but you can look it up). That opiate blocker actually prevents you from feeling withdrawal symptoms. The only catch with that, is that it’s pretty expensive. The first script, and visit to the doctor costs appx. $ 280. But, it does work as long as you are commited to quitting. Good luck with it, I hope it all works out for you. I understand what your going through. I ve been there myself.

    I think you need to – as mentioned above – check go to a rehab clinic, or a support group at least, and break your physical addiction to the painkillers. Recovery Connection.org is a great place to start. It has a wealth of information pertaining to treating painkiller addiction as well as numerous resources to rehab clinics and support groups. Trust me, with a bit of professional help, you’ll have your old life back.
