Overcoming opiate addiction was by far the most challenging obstacle I’ve faced thus far in life. It took real courage and strength (along with some powerful medications and supplements).
Looking back on my success quitting opiates, I now realize the main reason I was ultimately triumphant.
While the medications, supplements, and courage helped, they weren’t the top resources I had.
They were very helpful…
But it was my RESOLVE to quit opiates that won the award for “Top Resource.”
What Does Resolve Mean?
resolve (noun) – “firm determination to do something.” When you have resolve to quit opiates, it means that you’ve made your decision, and NOTHING (No Thing) will stand in your way.
Having resolve means that no obstacle or barrier can prevent you from achieving your goal of quitting opiates.
Resolve also means “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
To me, resolve means promising yourself you will never give up.
It means you’ll keep trying until you quit opiates.
You’ll keep researching opiate detox methods until you find the right one for you.
You’ll keep planning until you have the perfect opiate recovery plan.
And if you try and don’t succeed your first, second, or third time quitting opiates, then you’ll try again, and you’ll keep trying until you achieve your goal and hit your target.
That is resolve.
And that is why I finally quit opiates after years of trying and not succeeding. I had resolve, and there is no greater resource for quitting opiates.
Do You Have a Resolve to Quit Opiates?
When I first started using opiates, they made me feel GREAT. I was getting lots of benefits from using opiates for awhile.
More happiness, lasting longer in bed, more energy, and euphoria are just a few of the benefits opiates gave me.
But towards the end of my addiction, I was addicted to heroin, and my life was spinning out of control. My life was very painful, and the consequences of using opiates greatly outweighed the benefits, thus, I developed a strong resolve to quit.
And that’s the key in my opinion. The consequences of being addicted to opiates have to outweigh the benefits. The more the consequences outweigh the benefits, the greater chance you’ll have of developing a resolve to quit.
Have You Set a Goal to Quit Opiates?
Let me ask you a question. Do the consequences of being addicted to opiates outweigh the benefits for you? If so, it’s really time to make a plan to quit.
You may already be committed to quitting, but have you created a plan and a deadline?
If you don’t yet have a detailed plan and deadline for quitting opiates, then it’s a wish, not a goal.
Is fear holding you back from setting a deadline to quit opiates?
If you don’t quit opiates, what will your life look like one year from now? What will it look like five years from now, or ten?
Imagine what your life will look like one year from now if you quit opiates. How will your life look five years from now? How much money will you have saved? How much healthier will you be? How much more freedom will you have?
Unleash the Super Hero Within
Have you noticed the Super Hero theme in this article? I intentionally chose pictures with Super Hero’s, because you have a Super Hero within you.
It is time for you to unleash the Super Hero within.
I’m not going to lie.
It takes Super Hero strength to quit opiates and stay quit for good.
Thus, I’m encouraging you to call upon that greatness within you that is just waiting to be unleashed. You are capable of so much in this world. You have a tremendous amount of inner-strength and courage, and you’ll need to tap into this power when you quit opiates.
Want to Work with Me?
If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s helping people unleash the power within them. Yes, I’m also very effective at helping people come up with custom opiate detox plans that can help an individual get off opiates at home without getting sick.
But quitting opiates is not just about obtaining the right combination of opiate withdrawal remedies that can reduce symptoms.
You also need resolve and a very strong mindset.
That’s where I come along.
Do you want a coach to push you and help you get off opiates? Do you want someone to stand by your side and fight this battle with you? Do you want someone to help you come up with an opiate recovery goal, and then hold you accountable for achieving that goal?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, I would love to work with you.

I’ve literally just stumbled upon this site and this chat thread but I want to say that any one out there who thinks it’s unethical to charge money to provide a service that is designed to ,at it its most basic description,save lives(ive been an addict long enough and seen it enough times to say that opiate addiction is ultimately a path to an untimely death)clearly has never had the “god I would do anything to get off this stuff moment “and are not truly serious about quitting opiates and living a clean life.every single reputable rehab facility,counseling program,and self help programs all cost money and usually lots of money.news flash here people,it costs money to operate these centers and programs.to the person who said it’s not the same thing to spend money on your recovery as it is to scrape up the money to buy your drugs,are you in denial or just plain ignorant?how many times have you faced either paying the rent(which keeps the roof over your family’s head)or buy a thousand dollars worth of heroin or pills and chosen the drugs???how many times have you sacrificed your grocery budget to increase the amount you have to spend on drugs???its EXACTLY the same damn thing.this guy Matt finch near as I can tell isn’t claiming to be the recovery messiah,he’s simply devised a multi faceted program in the hopes that it can help people find their own way to quit opiates.you people criticizing this man for having expenses and charging money for certain aspects of his program clearly have no firm grasp on reality and are so far gone in your addicts mentality that you think that this addiction is anyone’s fault but your own and the help you need should be given to you for free.matt gives huge portions of his program away for free and if he charges for other parts of it as a means to keep it running well good for him.when you had the bright idea to sell drugs to off set the expense of your addiction did you give them away???of course you didn’t.if you want some one to criticize and blame how about that dealer we all know that claims to be a friend but takes your hard earned money every week and sells you drugs knowing you have bills .or a family,but no,I bet you love that guy to death huh?grow up people,we did this to ourselves and it’s ultimately up to us to have the RESOLVE to quit…thank you Matt finch for at least trying to help dont let these few sniveling ingrates who lack probably lack the true courage to quit and Instead of face their own cowardice they lash out at you dissuade you from your course
Thanks Blake. I’ve put in years of work on this website, and since I’m able to make money with it, that has allowed me to quit a regular job and become a full-time specialist in opiate recovery. If I never made money, I would still have to work somewhere 40 hours a week, which means I wouldn’t have the free time to research all of this stuff and write all these free articles etc.
Thus, the reason I’ve been able to spend literally years researching and writing free articles to help people get off opiates is because I make enough money doing it to have this be my job.
Perhaps if people think about it this way they would be a little more accepting. But I do honor and respect everyone’s opinion. And I appreciate you chiming in on the discussion. I loved what you wrote and I sincerely thank you for backing me up. Take care Blake.
As far as I’m concerned anyone that is close minded enough to think that you don’t have the right to make a living is simply looking for excuses to keep using or to make excuses for someone else to. I’m all for everyone’s right to their opinion, So I hope all those people will forgive me for saying it’s my opinion that their opinions are ignorant and just plain old wrong.good luck all with this struggle it is for real ,butvso are all of our lives our dreams and hopes …thank you Matt finch,at least you’re trying
I am a long time heroin addict. Nothing has worked for me because I get way to sick and just end up going to buy more heroin. I’ve tried suboxone, gabapentin, clonadine… you name it and I’m sure I’ve tried it. There has to be something or some way that I can get off this s*** without getting sooo sick because I can’t get past that.
I must tell you, my long journey to finally have the resolve to get completely clean was frustrating at best. Until I finally became strong willed enough to not only realize that getting clean is not just the physical symptoms that you go through, but the strength that you draw from within yourself to do it. If it wasn’t for all of the options we got from Matt, I truly could not have done it on my own. With Matts help, I came up with a very strategic plan for myself, which truly worked for me. Supplements, good nutrition, exercise. Exercise is huge! Deep breathing. I must admit that a couple of the things I tried, just were not working for me. So finally I came up with the perfect plan for me, and I have been clean for 6 months. Do I have bad days still? Of course, but a bad day clean is 10 times better than 3 years on Suboxone. Thank you Matt from the bottom of my heart, for all of the good you do, for all of us that had absolutely no tools to go through such a rough ordeal on our own. I still use all of the information that I got from Matt just to push through the challenges that I face every day. Matt, your program is priceless, because you gave me my life back. And you can not put a price on that!
Thanks for sharing a bit of your story! I really enjoyed reading it. Your success story is extraordinary and I want to congratulate you on your 6 months of FREEDOM! I also sincerely appreciate the feedback and I’m grateful the information has helped you. Take care. 🙂
Hi i was addicted to dyhrocodine 15yrs ago was on them for 5 yrs, i managed to come off them with subutex, then about 7 m onths ago something happened with my daughter and i went back on subutex and agin im now addicted, i feel embarrassed and stupid that after so long of being clean im back doing it again…i have been to the doctors and im now in a group and im finally getting off them again, im just worried that if something else happens with my daughter this will be the 1st thing i go back to
Please don’t beat yourself up over this. And it sounds to me like you need to develop new, healthy and adaptive coping tools for life stressors, rather than turning to Subutex. There is nothing to be embarrassed about. I rarely meet people that quit opioids and never use them again at least a few times in the future.
You’re perfectly fine and need to have some compassion and acceptance for yourself. Use this time wisely to develop and nurture healthy coping skills for life-stressors. If you are religious or spiritual, lean on God or the Universe or whatever you prefer to call it for guidance, help, and strength.
Man oh man!. Quick summary… been addicted to herion for 6 going on 7yrs. I’m not positive how long Matt’s web site has been up but I do know within the last 3to4 yrs I’ve found myself inevitably back on his site easily 40 times and maybe 80. And I’ll be the first to say I thought it was a scam taking advantage of a part of the human race that is desperate be all belief to quit these horrible drugs and when there’s a man out there selling pills that claim to cure opioid and heroin addiction that’s a crock of s*** any of us has been addicted for any time frame at all no the pill ain’t going to make get us to quit but that’s not what I’m getting at I’ve never bought the pills raed good reviews read bad review my whole thing is the amount of free information this man gives to people like us. Not every Solutions going to work for every person but by God this man giving us more methods in sincerely I believe tries to point people in the right direction to get clean from this evil terrible drug especially coming from somebody who has dealt with the same s*** that we’re all dealing with and yes it first I thought it was a little scammy and all that and but just the fact of the time and effort this man puts in given all this information out here for free and all you got to do is take a little bit of effort then you can keep researching where he ended and you get all these little b**** on here bitching and f****** complaining and s*** and I haven’t seen this man act anything BUT professional in his responses to ignorant rude people I’ve read countless different ways that you had on your website Matt I haven’t purchased anything and I don’t know that I will but I want to thank you for all the time and effort you put into passing this information along to people like me and you that one day hopefully one of the methods pass along will succeed for me cuz I know your word in effort isn’t in vain and I’m sure there’s countless men and women out there that owe you their life so f*** all you naysayers out there and keep up the good work mat
Thanks for leaving such a detailed comment and for backing me up. I sincerely appreciate it. And one thing people don’t know is that it costs me $1,200 a month, every single month, to run my website and software to provide almost 200 free articles (and counting) and 2 free online courses, and free emails available to the public.
I also spent over $4,000 on a very prestigious life-coaching certification program to help enhance my skills. People often don’t realize how much time and money I spend on this website helping people for free. Charging money for Recovery Coaching and my main online course, in my opinion, is not a bad thing to do. However, I respect and honor every person’s opinion and feedback, even if it makes me out to be the bad guy.
When benefiting financially from the misery of other human beings, is it truly necessary to charge an amount of money that most cannot afford?
You are entitled to your opinion and I value your perspective. Thank you for the feedback, and I wish you the best.
I assume you think doctors should not get paid for providing life-saving surgery for patients who are in misery?
Yes but we sure could scrape up the money for the drugs that we wanted! Trust me, any money spent on getting well is worth its price in gold for sure!!
Really elementary reply…. I think we all know the difference here.
I have advanced diabetes and I need to know if any of your remedies to help with withdrawals can affect my blood sugar? Thanks
Off the top of my head I can’t think of any remedies that affect blood sugar. However, it’s always best to ask your doctor first before trying any new supplement.
My problem with you is almost EVERY Email I get from you is a DIFFERENT way to get off opiates. SMH So I just don’t get it and have stopped even reading your emails anymore. Makes me sad cause at first it gave me hope but then your methodS shattered that hope.
I’m sorry that I’ve provided too many ways to quit opiates. And I’m sorry your hope has been shattered. That must be awful. I hope that you find your way. If there is anything I can do to assist you, please use the contact page to send me an email.
Cindy, please don’t get discouraged and give up. Matt provides information to help many different people who have different situations with different bodies. What works for one may not work for another and vice versa. I understand it can be overwhelming at first with the amount of info but many people have to try different ways before reaching success. Btw, Matt’s article here is 100% true, it can be worded different ways but the first ingredient for anyone to be successful getting off opiates is Resolve or a strong determination to do it. No one can make you do it and you won’t be successful it you only partially want to quit. I always worded it “you have to get sick of it to get away from it”. No matter how you say it, it’s the truth. I hope you find what you need. Please don’t give up.
Matt, my adult son is an addict. Do you take appointments and where are you located?
Yes I take appointments for phone consults and phone coaching. I’m located on Oahu. Here is a link to my Coaching Page for you to see your options.
Hey Matt, I’ve sent you a couple emails this week but I may have sent them to the wrong email.
What email did you send them too?
So I just need the confidence to quit is your #1 resource? And that is gonna keep me from withdrawal ? I’ve went and bought or obtained just about everything you’ve ever posted . From gabapentin , clonidine to vitamin supplements (DHLP..etc) I’ve spent tons of money on my addictions but find it hard to give money to someone who claims they can fix me. If you care to assist me and are successful I can help sell your plan for you and we both win. But f I spend the money on the plan and it doesn’t work then I won’t have money to support my addiction. ( Addicts mindset)
The number one resource is not confidence. As I stated in the article, it is “resolve,” which is much different than confidence. And I never said it helps with withdrawal symptoms. However, you said you have gabapentin, which is the medicine I would want most if I had to go through withdrawal again.
But medication alone is not enough to quit. Which is why I wrote this article. I’m sorry I gave the wrong impression in this article. It wasn’t my intent.
This matt person i really thought he sounded good until i saw the money part.humm.life coaches are suppose to be free your not helping no one but your self matt finch.
I’m sorry you feel hurt that I’m charging money to be a Recovery Coach. I hope my 188 free articles on this website and 2 free online courses will be good enough for you. Best wishes.
