please help.. my sister is addicted to vicodin..!
please i'm desperate. i've been bawling my eyes out for weeks now b/c we're all at our wits ends. to make a very long story short, she's been addicted for almost 5 years now, on & off, once before we got her to go through detox & come clean but then she went back. she's 30 & divorced. she's got a lot of mental health issues & depression/anxiety. she's been in & out of the hospital for almost a month now. they have her right now on 30 mg of methadone daily, ativan, ambien & paxil. she's so drugged she can't even keep her eyes open, stand, walk,talk, nothing. isn't this 2 much? she has no insurance, no job, no money. we can't find a treatment center here in illinois that treats those w/out insurance. social security/medicaid aren't friendly to addicts anymore I guess.
if anyone lives in illinois, could you refer me to a treatment center that doesn't require insurance? i'm not sure if that's allowed but if it is, please post it!
also.. can anyone give me any advice, any direction? I don't like her being on methadone, I hear it's even worse than any narcotic, & that it's the hardest to get off of. she won't listen to get off of it. I told my mom not 2 let the doctors give it 2 her anymore but she's doing what she used 2, saying how she NEEDS it for the pain. what can we do? PLEASE HELP.. i'm just desperate!!
