Addiction to clonazepam

I been taking clonazepam 3mg /day for 5 years and Wellbutrin 400mg/day.
I got pregnant on November 2011, my doctor said to me stop all the medication, and I end at the hospital at the 3rd day with convulcions , I already pass for 3 withdraws and I been at the top of the line.
I delivery my baby at 8 months and thanks God , she is ok, nothing on her body , she was clean with no med .
I have a 7 years old twins Boys and 7 month baby girl and I want to stoop this crap ,
I didn't realize how strong is this med until I got pregnant with my baby girl, I don't know why doctors are giving this med so easy and just said STOP no more, and not even care what happen with you later.
He said , you have 2 options:
Stop the medication at home and I can give you med so you cannot get convulcions.
Or stay for 7 days at the rehab hospital with same process and pay $3800dls.

I don't know what to do, first I want to get off of this med but I don't have that kind of money ,
And I don't want to do that at my house alone.
I'm scared , is horrible past for this situation ,
I need help please,
I don't have a life .......

I have been clean fir 10 months of drug abuse. My drug of choice was lortab. I think I took 26 in one day. At least I think that's the most in one day. Opiate withdrawals were terrible. Every inch of my body hurt. My eyes twitched so bad I had to put a warm pack on them to sleep. But I didn't get any good sleep for about a month. I had diarrhea, constant nasal drip, restless, anxious, guilt ridden,  pain and guilt pain and guilt. Even on the first day if detox I did a lot of walking. A lot. It pays off I promise u. Drank lots of water and juice. No caffiene for the first 5 days. I took probably 10 hot hot showers a day. U will get relief. Hot tubs r great too if u have one. I cried a lot and paced around up and down all day. I call it aimless wandering. No energy but I still couldn't sit still. I also prayed. A lot at that time my only prayer for 2 weeks was help me and thank you. Over and over. Yes he answered my prayers and mo I still went thru withdrawals. I see now why. Don't ever ever want to withdrawal again!  I lied to my family stole pain pills of there's ran the front of my car through the garage wall. Oh yes. I don't remember doing it. Must have been the lirtab beer and ambien cocktail I lived my life for at that time. So lirtab and alcohol both stopped. I'll share more tomorrow.  I'll pray for u all. Remember this: there is no greater Slavery than slavery to drugs and alcohol. God lives u just as u r. I assure u he can and will help u thru this. Don't give up. Be sure u have someone with the first 10 days or so. U cannot cannot cannot detox aline. Tried that 6 times and failed. Stay hydrated. Take lots  of showers or baths. I promise it eases the pain. Try nit to sit around and watch tv. Tv watching stressed me plus u sit there and get in your head to much. Remember pain and guilt go together. Deal with the physical first for two weeks. Prayers to u all. Lead in Gid he will hold u up
