I was charged with trafficking in opium or heroin

Question Details:

I had 40 methadone pills and they were not for sale and I did not have any cash on me. It was a case of possession not trafficking. I am facing 80 months for this charge and I am an addict but since being arrested in October 08 I am now a full time student on the President's List. I have been clean since then, and I work full time at Ruby Tuesdays. I am hoping to get any insight as to what I can do to make my charges less harsh.
