best-way-to-detoxOver here at AfterParty, we receive an onslaught of questions from people about addiction and recovery.

The question, in short, is this: what’s the best way to detox off of opiates? While this is somewhat controversial territory that the girls have ventured into before, they (mostly) steer clear of the whole Suboxone conversation and instead focus on this thoroughly disgusting thing Danielle wrote about where opiate addicts ingest large amounts of Imodium AD in place of methadone. Anna and Danielle then get a bit side tracked by Anna’s discomfort in discussing (and admitting to) bodily functions, the Trainspotting scene where Renton sees the baby crawling on the ceiling and the way Danielle pronounces the word “withdrawal.”

If you want their complete answer, check out the vid. While the girls aren’t in any way medical professions (emphasis on “aren’t in any way medical professionals”), they are sober folks who have not only grappled with some of the issues being asked about but have also written scads of articles for this very site on them. Tune in every month to see what you, our faithful readers, want to know.
