@Seriously

It's quite obvious you have no idea what it is like to be addicted to drugs. If an addict has $300.00 in their pocket not one of them is going to use it to seek help with their problem we are going to go buy whatever the drug is we are needing. Not that we don't want to, its just that we need the drug more than help, or so it appears so.

It's a miserable feeling and most would like to be able to stop or at least get to the point where you can ger high on occasions and leave it at that.

If prestera had real professional counselors instead of dweebs who sit there playing games on their cell phones instead of listening and trying to make a difference in a persons life thing may be different.

Prestera is just another program being financed thru a number of different government state agencies and has employees who care less.

In other words it is just another waste of tax payers money.

it's all about a paycheck. The more addicts who stay adicts the more money they make.

Thanks for your input and thought out response. However, you have to understand you really just illustrated my case and point to the letter. I understand that some treatment centers have less than perfect reputations, but to justify continued use because of it is addict behavior.

I was insufflating multiple Opana's daily and then got clean on my own, but not without many bumps int he road. I know, it is the most difficult thing one can go through. However, I fully agree with 'Seriously'. You SERIOUSLY did back them up with that rant you spewed. I would say to you - go get some help, but actually, you just need to find it within to help yourself. First though, you have to decide, then commit.

Look, continuing to bash what help is available and moan and groan about physical addiction and withdrawl sickness, take it upon yourself to make a change. No one can make this choice but you.

In this day and age there is absolutely no excuse for not accessing the world of information and guidance out there. This link is very insightful and helpful IF YOU READ IT AND REFLECT ON HOW IT RELATES TO YOU.

www.helpguide.org (there are over 50,000 links to FREE information guides about addiction and drug abuse which are both legitimate and factual according to a CDC study in 2010).

Internet access is available for FREE at any public library.

NA Meetings take place all over and are FREE. Times/days/locations can be accessed on the web. There will be at least one person in the meeting who has an extended record of continued sobriety and will be a wealth of information and support to those in need.

ERs cannot refuse to allow an uninsured individual to undergo detox. EVER. FREE...There's your first step.

Stop being counterproductive and be proactive. Stop making excuses and make changes. Stop thinking you can't and start believing you can.

You, my friend need help ASAP. There are many resources out there and I encourage you to reach out. Prestera has a crisis center located in Charleston which specializes in this.

Until you die or are incarcerated and forced to stop abusing yourself.

Not so fast! I like to get high and as a matter of fact I am as we speak, but I am in no way in a crisis mode. It's just that in my heart i know prestera doesn't have the right staff or even care enough to help people in need. I hope to stop someday on my own, but so far I haven't. I have been addicted for the last ten years now.

Can't afford a real treatment center (who can?) so I hope to stop on my own once i make up my mind to do so.

I know this may not make since to you or others, but it does to me.

Thanks for trying to help though.

P.S.

One thing that makes me justify doing drugs is that I have no children or wife depending on me, so at least I am only hurting myself and no others.
