Avatar m tn Honey, you are so young, with your whole life ahead of you. I think you should come clean and get real help - not just with the pills themself, but with the bigger issues that go with them. You are on the right track. I think you should absolutely go to your doctor and get the best help available to you. And keep posting here for additional support.

Avatar f tn Jeri, first and foremost, I want you to know how very sorry I am about the loss of your daughter, there truly are no words that can describe the death of a child, and the pain that never really heals. Our oldest daughter died of cancer, it was and is devasting, you can't bury your daughter and not bury a portion of your heart. The "circle of life" is not suppose to work that way.
Avatar m tn Addiction is categorzied by maladaptive behavior that is typically out of character for the person, including doing things that are harmful, without any regard for the consequences, in order to get the drug. Addiction includes mental cravings for the meds, where dependency is almost always just physical in nature. It's important for you to determine which category you would fit into, if indeed this is even a concern for you.
Avatar n tn It was given out like aspirin. It is very unfortunate that it became a schedule one drug, with the drug enforcement administration tracking down phjysicians who prescribe it. Valium does degrade situational awareness as well as intellectual acuity, and may interfere with driving safety, although that is more of a problem for the first time user. I have used it (prescribed by a physician) rarely, when under extreme stress, and then only for a day or two, and never became addicted.

Avatar f tn This is the point where you can get him into treatment and have it be effective. If he is not wanting treatment now then he will start using again as he dd the last time that he went to court ordered treatment. The military would be agood option but they are not into taking addicts. My 21 year old nephew was just kicked out of the military as a result of addiction related issues. His commanding officer was very nice but said the service is run like a fortune 500 company in today's world.
Avatar m tn Your friend needs to have a strong desire to stop the drug. Then, I would suggest tapering down on the dose over time; slow and steady.

656944 tn?1241632187 no one has any right to judge you tho, or your treatment plan...... unfortunately drug addiction does come off a cookie cutter belt! Take good care of yourself, sweetheart. When you are unsure or have questions please talk to your councelor or addiction doctor.. or post here and those that know your stuggle can help you. Have you attended or checked into any NA/AA meetings, they do such a great job........ Al-Anon was a bit of my sanity and still is thru the addicion curse.
Avatar m tn HI THERE, IM A RECOVERING ADDICT FROM LOUISVILLE KY, AND I JUST WANTED TO TELL ANYONE OUT THERE WHO IS ADDICTED TO OPANA ER OR IR, DO NOT QUIT TAKING THE MEDICINE ABRUPTLY WITHOUT BEING IN A TREATMENT FACILITY. ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WANTING TO BEAT THEIR ADDICTION HAVE BEEN TRYING TO QUIT BY GOING TO SUBOXONE DR.S OR SUBOXINE TREATMENT FACILITIES AND ARE BEING TOLD THAT IF YOU TAKE A VERY HIGH AMOUNT OF A STRONG OPIATE THAT SUBOXONE WONT HELP. THIS IS VERY FALSE INFORMATION!!!
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, you will probably need assistance from a treatment program. Twelve years on any kind of drug is going to be hard to quit. Luckily, there are programs who can help you with a treatment plan. It's not going to be easy, but no road to recovery ever is. Without some support or treatment, you will find it easier to relapse. I wish you luck on your journey. Stay positive and remember anything is possible, if you put your mind to it.
