opiate withdrawal..

Hi, I've made a few mistakes. I'm in the 3rd day of opiate withdrawal, those opiate were insuffilated. These opiates being probably 100mg morphine and .1pt of heroin. My duration lasted about 3 days using and my pain, aches, migraines, restless legs, diarehha, insomnia have been terrible. I hear that this is my third day and hopefully i'll start recovering after this. I've been taking vitamin b, inositol, lots of liquids, multivitamins, selenium, pottasium, omega 3s. My friend gave me 10mg valium pills which i have been taking to help. Am i taking all the right precautions? Also, Ive been going through the sauna for about 30 minutes a day to get the toxins out of me. Any suggestions? Thank you

Hi,your self precautionary measurements look preety fine. Self administration of Valium can be a hinderance towards your health as it is a prescription drug and is only administered after a thorough physical check up because of high rate of dependace.So before further use of Valium,medical check up is adviced. you can also seek help of proffesional de-addictors. Try to use natural modes of relaxation and control like Meditation and breathing exercises.yoga in the form of Pranayam can also be effective.

Our 31 year son has thoracic back issues. He is an addict, alcoholic and liar. He has been through rehab twice. At age 14 and again in his early 20 s. He is on MS contin prescribed by a pain doctor in Austin, TX. We just read the web information on MSContin and believe he should not be prescribed this medication as an addict. He is also a patient with MHMR. We believe he needs a dual diagnosis. Mental and Substance Abuse. Are there rehab centers that work with patients with no insurance with a dual diagnosis? He does not have a job. He got his TXDL back yesterday after a 180 day suspension for DUI. He still has not gone before the judge due to lawyer extensions. His biological father paid an attorney $2500 to represent him in court. The lawyer keeps putting extensions due to his schedule. The first court date was December. The second date was January and has now been pushed to February. We are concerned that his mentally ability combined with substance abuse (even though legally prescribed) keeps him from functioning. Do we stand to the side and watch the fall? Do we attempt to find a dual diagnosis treatment facility and try and get him on the new health care system (Obama Care)? We see the gravity of the situation and need guidance. If you can discuss dual diagnosis treatment facilities and the likelihood of Obama care paying for rehab? Thanks,
