I know of rehabs where a person can go to detox from drugs and alcohol abuse/adddiction. Where can I go to get help with my onlne porn addiction? It’s ruining me!

How do I get help?!?!?! Also, will my mom’s insurance pay for me to get better?

How Can Suboxtin Help Me With Drug Addiction ?

how save s suboxtin in helping with drug addiction ?

Best answer:

Answer by
Suboxtin or Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) is used to treat opiate addiction… basically the drug itself is an opioid… Buprenorphine is the opioid and Naloxone blocks the effects of other opioids. The reason they use it even though it’s an opioid (it’s addictive) they believe it’s easier to quit than heroin, morphine, codeine etc. It doesn’t give you the same pleasant symptoms that people crave from those kinds of drugs, so they believe that’s why it’s easier to stop taking. So they switch you from whatever drug, onto this drug… then eventually get you off that drug. Because most people find it too intense to try and quit things like heroin cold turkey

My mother in law is on 2 different pain pills lyrica muscle relaxers and adderal. she gets so drugged up sometimes she passes out for days. she takes care fo her grandchild who is 5 months old and falls asleep on her almost drops her when she holds her. she smokes also and she will light up a ciggarette and we have to watch her because she will drop it while its lit. she dropped one the other day and we put it out and she didnt wake up for 10 minutes. then she woke up and tried finding it. she sleeps sitting up and falls forward and hits her head on the table sometimes. we are worried she is going to kill the baby or set the house on fire. her husband tries talking to her but she act like the usual addict. saying she has no problems and gets mad and acts like a 5 year old. shes also bi-polar. she gets 120 painpills (60 of 2 types) 60 adderal and 60 muscle relaxers. we live in arkansas. we are very tired and its hard to stay up for days watching her to make sure she doesnt do anything to hurt out house or herself. what can we do? can we addmit her to a hospital without her permission? her doctor is crappy and just hands her these pills. she also takes her brothers and mom pain pills through out the month. she runs out of pills with in a week of getting them. she take them on average about every 4 hours. we really need help. we cant do this anymore. ive looked stuff up online but cant find what im looking for. what can we do? what would happen if we called 911 while shes drugged up? were lost.
Your answer is perfect, no not my child. its my sister in laws and i am equally upset that she would trust her new born with a druggie. i know what adderal is (methamphetamine causes a high people take to do stuff, same as meth) but she takes two other pain pills with that. i am thankful you answered. wonderful information. i really hope we can help her. shes a very loving person and we hate seeing her struggle.

I Think I Developed a Cocaine Addiction. Help!?

Question by Bonny: I think I developed a cocaine addiction. Help!?
I’m 30 years old, married and my husband and I started using cocaine a couple years ago. At that time, we tried it with then acquantiances but, after a couple times, we stopped and didn’t have the desire to continue. Within the last two months, however, we have used cocaine several times a week and i’m scared that we have become addicted to it. Every time we make a pact to not do it anymore, when the weekend comes, someone will hint to it and the other will support us getting more. I’m really scared. I don’t want to ruin my life and I see that it’s not as easy as we thought to stop “cold turkey” because we rationalize the weekend use as just “having a good time on the weekend.”
