I have been on methadone for 7 years and I used to get very anxious whenever my key worker suggested that I think about reducing. Thinking about reducing by even the smallest amount made me really worry so I always said I wasn’t ready. Recently though I began to feel differently. I felt things were going well for me and it just felt like the right time to try.
I have been reducing for a while now and so far so good. In fact I will be off completely in a few weeks and am really looking forward to not being on anything.
