Any answers for advice would be great! I know I will get bad answers and good I will ignore the bad ones.I don't want to see this person keep suffering. Is it best to go off everything cold turkey? If yes then how long will side affects last and what should I get to help this person.

It takes 3 days. But they puke and her diarrhea at the sane time with chills and shakes. Their legs hurt so bad they can't walk. My bf never made it past a couple hours doing it that way. They need to go to seneca and get suboxon (sp) it doesnt get tgen high, but it keeps them from feeling withdraw. Im sure they know where to get it if Seneca isnt an option.

The class of drugs benzodiazapans, which are xanex or valium, and also alcohol a person could die coming off of if you are truly addicted to them. As for "soboxon" just another drug to get stung out on!

i know it might sound crazy but weed would actually help if that's all they do. it helps with appetite among other things.Cannabis has been used as medicine for thousands of years.it is impossible to overdose from cannabis.I have seen it help people who were receiving chemotherapy.Do some research on it.Its not what you think.Don't believe the gateway theory.if that were the case then cigarettes are a gateway to everything.

I am a recovered addict, pain killers,& meth,I didnt think of myself as an
"addict" but i noticed alot of stupid changes that i didnt realize i was doing, i did try the "subs" but like mentioned b4 thats just another addiction, so i decided, THIS IS NOT WHO I WAS BROUGHT UP TO BE, so yes i do recommend "cold turkey" lots do go through the body pains of withdrawal, but i guess i was either determined or maybe just lucky but i made it, now i'm 4yrs sober "CLEAN" and feel wonderful, the feeling of being high is like no other, it takes u away from constant aggressions, depressions etc. but SO DOES THE BELIEF THAT YOU ARE ONLY WHAT YOU MAKE URSELF TO BE

Cold Turkey is the best way but the person must be willing or they will relapse.thing u can do to help are keep them away from the people who do drugs an yes like in one of the other comments weed helps hunger an it helps sleep also its easier to stop doing than other drugs.it should only take 4 days tops to stop withdraws from pills after that its all mental.be supportive take them out and show them a good time away from the area.also keep reminding them of the great thing in there life.I'm not just talking from hear say I'm talking from experience.life is a lot more fun sober and cheeper LOL.I wish u the best of luck.

drugs are (evil)
the (evil) looks and laughs it says im your best friend it tricks and takes over your mind it takes your will to RUN RUN RUN
TAKE your will back don't make contact it will look you in the eyes and laugh it takes your power

You can die from going cold turkey....also expect that at some point they will be completely out of their mind...but that will go away.

ima tell ya right now, subutex and suboxone is worse than being strung out on any pain pill....its just something different to get hooked to...it takes a week to get over it, the rest is all in their head and habits
