Many people became dependent to pain killers after they are released from the hospital. They couldn't take the pain anymore and so they rely on pain killers to ease the pain temporary. I can't blame them for I, myself have been to pain medications after I had my c-section, abdominal surgery, and kidney transplant. Thanks to my Bishop who warmed me of side effects that a pain killers give you. If you are one of those people who wanted to withdraw from opiate, them you should contact a facility that can help you ease the process. I read testimonies of those who have gone to opiate detox and everyone of them say the same thing 'they are happy and satisfied'. Who knows you might say the same thing after it.
