The xanax or valium will not eliminate opiate addiction
or w/d's. If I had a choice, I would take the benzo addiction
over the opiate addiction by far!!! Unfortunately, I don't have a choice. The benzo's are not a substitute, at all, for opiates.
The addiction doctor sounds like a good idea, presuming you are ready to get rid of your habbit. I, like you, am torn and tormented day and night.
Good luck and best wishes.
