Methadone is one tool to help those addicted to opioids by helping wean them off the destructive substances by tiding them over to prevent withdraw. At some point, the battle to overcome the problem becomes mostly psychological. Drug abusers have to learn how to cope without drugs.

Withdraw from drugs such as heroine can be devastating, even deadly. The best scenario is to become free from all mind-altering drugs, which harm you, and face the real world.  https://youtu.be/IP8G4clUJBY

Girl, you thought you found the answer
On that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin’
The world still gets you uptight
Well, there’s nothin’ that you ain’t tried
To fill the emptiness inside
When you come back down, girl
Still ain’t feelin’ right

And don’t it seem like
Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight
No, but not with kicks you just need help, girl

Well you think you’re gonna find yourself
A little piece of paradise
But it ain’t happened yet, so girl, you better think twice
Don’t you see no matter what you do
You’ll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin’ you’ll have to pay the price

And don’t it seem like
Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight

No, you don’t need kicks
To help you face the world each day
That road goes nowhere
I’m gonna help you find yourself another way

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
(Oh, you don’t need kicks, girl)
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight
(You just need help, girl)

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
(Oh, you don’t need kicks, girl)
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight
(You just need help, girl)

Discussing Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis in my Psychology in Literature class in college, a fellow student commented that in this parable, Gregor, who wakes up in the morning and becomes a cockroach, just doesn’t want to face the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Metamorphosis

A friend once told me she suffered from depression and that she did not want to wake up and greet the day. But as she moved forward, she got up early, made breakfast, and did various activities, such as organizing and reading.

Methadone counteracts negative effects of drugs, without getting high. It helps curb cravings, although there is an adjustment and side effects.

The key to staying clean is the mental challenge to stop using drugs as a crutch, a talisman, to deal with the exigencies of life. Instead, go to God’s Word in the Bible. Scripture, empowered by the Holy Spirit, which will provide guidance and a solution to the vicissitudes of life.

Get out of bed and face the world!
