Gunshot wound to the leg + drugs

My MC has just been shot by a pistol on about 10 m distance. After escaping the shooter, he's got no access to a hospital. The setting is modern time/a few years into the future.

1. Will it be enough just to clean the wound with brown alcohol/liquid coal to keep infections and gangrene away, or is it necessary to cut away the destroyed tissue?

2. The MC will be drugged on some kind of opioid (morphine, methadone, heroine or something like that). With a first-time user dose (he's never used an opioid before) but with "experience" from cocaine use, how much pain will he feel? Will it be necessary to restrain him while cleaning and suturing the leg or not?
