| | post-rehab life
hi all. when you look at it, most of the things that people are prone to become addicted to (via ingestion) don't really have a practical purpose in society. cocaine, heroin, alcohol, etc. (hey, i love booze, but c'mon, its for fun) my point is that when you have a problem with one of these and you successfully go through rehab, there's no reason for you to retake any of them except for just weakness. BUT, prescription pain medication, this has a useful purpose in society. so, my question is, if you have a addiction problem with, say, vicodin, and even if it started with you using it just medicinally, and you go through rehab and come out feeling great and kicking the problem, what happens in the future? what do you do when you get into a car accident? fall out of a tree and break your arm? when you have a legitimate need for pain medication. if you've beaten aa addiction problem with this in the past, can you take them once again to help through an injury?
