Opium addiction, along with heroin, morphine, codeine and the other synthetic opioids, is a rapidly-progressing addiction that can hook you in a matter of days (as you probably know already). It is also a difficult addiction to leave, because of the discomfort of the withdrawal.

Fortunately, it is also treatable if you want to kick. The ideal method is short-term detox with a replacement drug such as Suboxone (which kills the sickness and speeds up the detox), followed by comprehensive treatment and support. If you live in any large city there should be resources open to you.

We also recommend attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings so that you will meet people who have been successful and can help you along in your recovery.

We sincerely hope that you were not distressed by the previous answers. This is a wiki, and sometimes people provide opinions rather than facts. We apologize.
