Well if you must use drugs for pain, then you have the answer. But I've seen people with so many pins in their body they set off metal detectors go through drug and alcohol treatment and stay clean and sober despite tremendous pain.

Sometimes the pain and the addiction go hand in hand down that lonely path.

I am not sure what you are doing now? Cold turkey? or back to the drugs?

As far as how long it will take to get a good night's sleep, the physical withdrawal will be done in 7 - 10 days maximum. There is no drug left in your system after that time. However, there is a "rebound effect" - following detox a person still undergoes a sort of "rebound effect" due to deprivation of narcotics and other drugs which makes one quite weak and restless and susceptible to chills, night sweats and insomnia for some time (up to 30 days) even after detox. The detox is over, but the rebound effects can be marked enough to seem like continued withdrawal and can lead to relapse.

Hang in there. Try some support groups like 12-Step Meetings. You do no have to do this alone.
