15 years trapped In Sub Hell

Was just wondering if anyone else has been stuck on this terrible soul stealing drug for as long as me ?? I haven't looked into theodern day methods for getting off easy, but tapering just doesn't work for me, I can't control myself to taper properly. I've been on so long and have 15 years of sub built up that I start to get WD just 24 hours without taking it. Has anyone gotten off this stuff using modern day treatment like switching to a different drug, doing a rapid detox or a shot ?? I wish my doctor would give me a couple months of perks or codene and then I could switch to subs for 3-4 days at low dose and then be done for good, but no doc I know would prescribe opiates like that.

Hello trapped, you are right, very unlikely any provider would give you a full agonist (oxy ect) for a couple months. It is a violation of federal law to do that.
There is a shot, Sublocade, long acting Buprenorphine, if you get at least two of them them it would take 3-6 months to get out of your system, a taper that you can start and forget about.
Rapid detox often leads to relapse. Today a relapse is deadly with all the Fentanyl in the system.

theodern day method - what is that? Best I could find is a form of birth control so I doubt if that is what you meant.
I'm not going to comment on your relationship with Suboxone, it is what is is. Wish you the best.
