Hi there ~

I understand your concerns and am sorry to hear about your situation. You do not mention what drug you are addicted to. However I will try to answer you question. Most substances that one may be dependent on are in your system for a certain amount of time and you will not be able to stop them cold turkey. You will have to go off of the drugs in a gradual way, i.e. to reduce the dose of the medication and then stop them over a period of 2-3 weeks or so. The amounts you choose to reduce would depend on your tolerance. You also need to be psychologically prepared. I hope this helps.
