I had an addiction to Lortab (after several surgeries very close together) for over a year. I went to a medical detox facility because I was advised to stay away from the subutext/suboxin facilities (which when I got in there seemed to be good advice from so many relapsed from those programs). Anyway, I can not afford to go to the day or residential treatment plan afterwards and my counselours all said to me that I had a good chance of ending up back in there because I was not doing those programs. I do have a good sopport of people and I have a weekly group I will go to...and I have a therapist I will see once a week....Has anyone else made it after doing ONLY a short detox program?
I mean I will be totally honest and say that I am scared and am not sure if this will work.....but I want it to....
