Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Easier than what? The only way to get off narcotics is to gradually lower the dose over weeks to months, depending on which narcotic it is, and how much the person has been taking. There are some prescription medications to help with the withdrawal symptoms. It usually takes 6 months to a year if someone has been on drugs for a long time.
