Methadone can truly save your life. If you're ready to change and stop the endless cycle of opioid abuse it will take away all the painstaking withdrawal away. My husband and I have been clean 2 years and we had our confidence, self worth and pride back after a long time of being ashamed and barely living. River Region will help you.
