Opiate addiction is a brain disease and should be treated like any other disease. I would highly recommend that you look into inpatient rehab if your really serious about
being clean, but theres other choices out there like Suboxone (which I swear by) which you take to stop withdrawals and cravings but you take it along with Intensive Out Patient treatment and of course maybe NA or AA but becareful with those people cause from what I hear they dont consider people on medication "clean". And of corse theres good oldfashion Methadone. But no matter what you need some kind of help, not just for withdrawals but so you dont relapse and figure out what made you need them, like enviroment or genitics. I hope you find some kind of help or your in for lifetime of up and downs.
