Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board

My brother is getting almost all his narcotics by prescription from a quack doctor. I can't believe what all this doctor is giving him. Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, and one that is similar to valium.

What would happen if I called the doctor about all this medication? He must know how messed up my brother is just by the quantity that he is providing him.

Do you think the doctor would stop prescribing them to him? I know my brother would be furious with me, and be real sick with withdrawls.

Is this something I should even consider??? Would it even do any good as far as helping him get straightened out?

He doesn't work, and the state is paying for all these drugs. If he got cut off, he wouldn't have the money to just buy them on the street.

Sorry for so many questions. I am so afraid he's going to kill himself, and I couldn't stand it if I didn't know I did everything that I could.

Call your local Drug Task Force (call your police department and ask them for the number). Explain your concerns to them and let THEM check it out. Maybe the "quack doctor" you are talking about is already on their radar screen. The drugs you mentioned like Oxycontin, Vicodin, and others are an epidemic in most communities. The main pushers of these drugs are doctors like the one you described.

We need some heroes like you to stop these criminals.
