Call the Counseling Center in Portsmouth. They have a program, in-patient, for women and men. The one for women is Stepping Stones I think. In my opinion Suboxone is just trading addictions and some people get it, sell it and then buy their drug of choice. Her stay will depend on her progress but I think it's a minimum of 3 months. Good luck. I know, as a parent of an addict, what you are going through. Stay strong. God bless

I forgot to mention that they do take the medical card and even if you don't have insurance they don't turn anyone away if they really want help. My son is 6 months clean now and seems to be back on the right track. He went the suboxone route and it didn't work out so well. He ended up just kicking it without it and went to counseling. An addict is always in recovery and each day they stay clear of drugs makes it easier to do so. A very important thing to remember is to stay away from the environment of people that still use. If you don't, temptation is always around the corner. It won't be easy, but nothing worthwhile is. Make sure she knows that you will support her in her recovery but not in her addiction. A little tough love goes a long way.

Suboxone goes for $20 at the most. If they get one a day, what pills could they possibly buy after selling their subs considering most pill heads around here are on oxy 30's, and they aren't cheap at all. if suboxone will help someone get off pills, it's non addicting itself, so whys that bad?

What's to stop someone from selling 4 of them to buy one oxy? That's what they do! I'm not saying that Suboxone hasn't helped anyone. Everyone is different. Just speaking from personal experience. I believe that Suboxone can be psychologically addictive. I've heard of ppl being on that stuff for years. It does stop the craving if it's used right but addicts tend to be afraid to get off it because they're afraid the addiction might start back up. That's where counseling comes in.

I am sorry to hear about your situation, and my heart goes out to you, but it's your daughter who has to decide she has the problem and seek help, statistics do not favor her in her recovery, if she does decide to seek help. I do hope for her sake and yours, she beats the odds. You can call a noted abuse clinic and seek their advice in how to proceed, but remember you can't force someone into recovery no matter how much you love them. I wish you well.

I do agree with you. The addict has to want help to be able to receive it. She can beat the odds but it takes hard work and restraint. I'm not fooling myself into thinking my son won't relapse. It's one day at a time and we, as family, must be there to encourage our loved ones that is all worth it. The rest is up to them. I think, in my son's case, he just got sick and tired of seeing everything he had worked for going away. Now he's trying to regain his confidence and the trust of others, which won't be easy. I'm hopeful and will not give up the fight.

That's why I mentioned the Counseling Center. They don't do suboxone or anything like that there, but they do work with local hospitals to help their clients with the detoxing process if need be. If I were your daughter I would give it some serious thought.

I'm sick to death of hearing people blaming others for their or their loved one's addiction. I'm sorry about your daughter but at some point you need to make her personally responsible for having hit rock bottom. It isn't the community or the drug dealer or anyone else's fault. It is hers and until she knows that, there won't be any recovery. There are thousands of people who live in the same community with the same drug dealers under the same circumstances who CHOOSE not to ever take drugs in the first place. I don't mean to sound cruel because I'm not trying to be. Just sick of the lack of personal responsibility that I see in our area.

Do you know if they accept medicaid or have a sliding fee? I didn't know of this place. Mended Reeds used to be a juvenile facility out at the old Rock Hill high school. The group home from Vernon St. took it over.

BTW, I'm so glad that you are recovering. It's nice to hear a success story. God Bless and keep strong. Please share any advice you have.

well first of all dontknow how the person feels unless you have walked in thier shoes and it is the dealer and sellers fault if the person taking can not buy it then they can not make the choice to do it so that is the fact and if you have an issue for what ever eason then it makes a differnece i just know everoyne life is different and the dealer is the big problem and yes there is other in the community and all but if you dont have an issue you wont jump on the pill wagon so to speak

The addict must make up their own mind to turn from their vice of choice and get clean. That means severing ANY contact with those who still use or supply. Until they do that they will NEVER get clean and stay clean. Then lock themselves in a room for a few days and sweat it out. Yes that's a really hard statement; however, it does work and once you go through it you will know you never want to go there again. There isn't an easy way to get off some of these drugs.

I also think that some drs. need to be held accountable. It is easier for them to over prescribe to ppl in pain than it is to provide other avenues for their patients. I realize that for some ppl, pain meds are the only relief they get from chronic pain but alternatives should be tried first. Regardless of what some ppl might think, there are ppl out there that have to take these meds just so they can function. They don't intend to get addicted. Just saying that you can't judge the addict until you walk in their shoes. Just like i-towncrown said. It could happen to any of us given the right circumstances.
