Rosie,

Yes, Murphy is absolutely correct.! The 5-7 day De-Tox, in- hospital, is not a "cure all to end all". There will still be Mental fighting to do, but not the actual "Physical W/D's" that I know so much concerns you. But, my Lady, isn't that what you want.? No physical Battles, just your Mind's willpower, and strong desire to stay clean. When I came onto this Board last December, I had just come out of De-tox. You know, from "reading between the lines and all the kidding around", I still had some major Mental stuff going on. It was Tuff. In a way, I did kinda miss the "highs", but I found the strenght inside to resist.! And as you know, besides all the Legal heavy **** they had me on, I was still using Heroin occasionaly. So, maybe that is why they used a Methadone Cocktail on me instead of the Subutex or Suboxone.(???). I know, alot of people get nervous when they hear the word "Methadone", and all the connatations associated with it. But when you are in a Bad and Long Storm, any Port will do, Right.? The little time you are actually on this Medication, you do not become "addicted" to it. And besides, when you leave, they give you a script for a 5 to 7 day "wean-down " off the medication. In my first day or so, while starting the Meth cocktail, they gave me a few shots, in very small amounts, of Demerol and those pills that lower your blood pressure, when I told them I was feeling uncomfortable and restless. That did the trick.! I did a lot of "catch-up" sleeping, and really felt good when I left. You don't get "a high" from the Meth, (not sure about the other two, as I've never tried them), but that was what I wanted, after a lifetime of being Stoned on one thing or another. And it Feels GREAT.!!!
I hope more people here can give you the info you want on the " S's ", but if not, dont't let the word "Methadone" keep you from becomming Clean. That would just be plain silly, wouldn't it.??? Also, why don't you look up the hospitals or Treatment centers around you and ask for the Doctors and/or Counselors that may be actually treating you. They will talk to you over the phone, and describe their methods of treatment. And, if you like, you can call as many as you want, until you find the one that fits you best. In mine, I had visiting priviliges, and was able to walk around freely. They told me it was up to "ME" not to cheat and defeat the purpose of being there. And I didn't... Also remember, you are "Not Commited" to staying there. You can walk out at any time you please. Although, I would hope you stick it out, for the reward that will await you when you succeed.!!!

Just at least think of it as another (faster) option, for at least dealing with those Dreaded W/D's.....

Talk with you soon, I hope, Rosie...

Kinda....
