Check out this blog Beyond meds. It's Gianna Kali's story of detoxing from a really intense combination of serious psych meds and benzos.

She has been tapering off these medications for SIX YEARS and is down to the final tiny dose of benzos. She is an amazing, inspirational person who has been to hell and back and has basically written a guidebook for the rest of us. She was diagnosed bipolar after a drug-induced manic episode and for 10 years her doctors kept pumping her full of more and more psych meds until she could barely function.

She wasn't on opiates, but her blog is full of great information about withdrawal and detox nonetheless, and reading what she's had to go thru made sub withdrawal seem like a gift from above.

Check out the links on her blog as well.
