Heroin Addiction Oxycontin Recovery Success


Heroin Addiction Oxycontin Recovery - Success Stories

I did a full suboxone taper and it made it easier by more than half.  It was so much easier than cold turkey.


Heroin Addiction Oxycontin Recovery Success

Jun 24, 2015

I started using about 3 ½ years ago, just before my son was born.

I got into a dirt bike accident and as soon as I tried Percocet I loved them!  Then I built up a tolerance to them and went on to Oxycontin, built up tolerance to that and then started using heroin.  Because I did it gradually my wife and kids didn’t notice.  If I hadn’t done that they would have noticed and it wouldn’t have stretched out to three years.  Basically a year and a half ago, I wasn’t getting high anymore by snorting or smoking.  Then someone showed me how to inject it.  Basically I couldn’t do anything without it.  I had to tape rigs to my legs and make sure I had stuff ready because if I didn’t shoot up every 6 hours I was going into withdrawal.

At my worst, I was shooting 6 half gram shots a day. That was the last six months.  I tried quitting numerous times before.

Once in San Francisco, once I went to another country and then once cold turkey with no success. Basically after I left San Francisco, my wife pretty much gave up hope. She didn’t think there was anything that was going to make me quit.  I had heard about the sauna program.  I read the success stories on the internet and had heard about it when I was San Francisco.  But 11 days is not enough time to kick heroin. I basically relapsed right away when I left San Francisco.

It took me about 7 months to get back into treatment after the relapse.  I was spending about $1,400.00 a week on heroin.  I couldn’t take it any more. 

 I committed myself to doing the sauna program.  I was here for 4 ½ weeks doing the sauna program. 

I was out of my physical pain in about 2 weeks and feeling almost 100% after 3 wks.  The sauna really helped with the joint pains.  And I think it helps with all of it.  I feel about 95 % better.  I feel great! The staff was great.  The food was great, the surroundings are surreal.  I recommend this program to people who are addicted to opiates. I want to give a special thanks to Cassie.  She really helped me drive through the sauna when it was tough, with her kind words and support.
