I have addiction issues and ive been in need of help for a long time. opiates are my drug of choice but in an effort to not take opiates ive turned to alcohol and I got so drunk last week that I fell and broke my ankle,had to have surgery. so now everythings out in the open with my family and I want to do treatment but was told id be unable to do treatment if im taking my prescribed pain pills im in a hurry to start my recovery process and I want to go to detox at the beginning of next week and im wondering how unrealistic is it of me to go to detox and get off the pain meds with my injury at this point, as im actually in pain now
