Unless you know someone on drugs or have been there yourself you don't know the worry that a family goes through seeing this person struggle with addiction. They go from someone you trust to someone you hide your belongings from.They become someone who steals anything they can carry away. They lose their standing in the community and others treat them like they don't matter anymore. Thank God I have never been a drug abuser but I have several family members who are and it breaks my heart to see the dreams their families have for them go down the drain. I had a nephew who intended to go to law school but ended up dead from a house fire he couldn't escape from because his mind wasn't clear enough to save himself.Just weeks after that another nephew died in a firey crash while on the way back from buying drugs. So I have lived the life of worried family and it's not pretty.So if help comes to town let's not discourage anyone from going there for help. It's too late for my young nephews but save yours before something happens to them. Magoffin has buried too many of our people because of drugs.It's past time to say " NO MORE".
As someone who has also lost loved one to addiction, I feel your pain. It angers me that people are so judgmental about things they no nothing about. It is that judgmental attitude that makes addicts afraid to ask for help. They don't want to be seen at a clinic where they give suboxone/methadone because then they get berated by these people who lack empathy and humility. I think if medication is what it takes for them to get healthy then so be it!

Addiction is only 20% physical. The other 80% is mental. Using drugs long term changes the chemical functions in your brain. Medications like suboxone help restore those imbalances...they help people stay clean as their mind and body recovers from the years of abuse!Why do so many people have a problem with addicts using medication to get well? It is not another high- it allows them to function. These kinds of treatments are very effective for someone who wants to get clean.

I think suboxone is great if you truely want to be clean. I know this to be a fact becouse it saved my life. I went from a 200 to 300 dollar habit a day to a half way normal life. I was so ready to quit, I tried to quit several times by going to rehab, moving from where lived,but I could never kick the habit. When I started out 3 year ago I have made great progress and I think I can be someone I could never be when I was on druges.

So I think If you want to quit and have it in your heart to do so try the suboxone. IT IS OBV SOME People on this form have no ideal what they are talking about. WHAT I SAY IS A FACT BECOUSE I WENT AND I AM CLEAN NOW AND LIFE IS SO MUCH BETTER WOTHOUT THE DRUGES.

Magoffin, I hate to hear that your nephew took advantage of you the way he did and I understand that you don't want to give him the opportunity to rob you again.It really hurts when you stand up to your family and give someone the chance to change and then they go right back and do the same thing.
You see them struggle to get off the stuff and you have such high hopes for a better life and then you hear they are using again but I would give anything to have one more chance to help my two nephews start again. But that can never be so think hard before you turn him away and if you really can't find it in your heart to help him again don't blame yourself for his choices because you have already done more than most people would. But if you do help him again you need to set down some rules and not let him be free to do his own thing. That temptation will always be there for him but with the right guidance and rules he can do it permanently this time. I wish the best for you and your nephew.

I have a family member that is on something but IDK what..I can never tell they have done anything other than maybe be a little hyper but they was always like that..but I do know they are very sneaky and can make you believe anything...His wife cannot even leave her purse while she takes a shower! and I know he has stolen from her several times..so how does she find out what he is doing if she has never caught him and he doesn't seem to ever be high like usual addicts are? I mean he looks healthy...but he is very shady and has shady friends. I don't even know what drugs are available in this town? sometimes he is really grouchy but I figured that when he does have anything? or is that when he has done something? I know he can never be trusted with money or items that are worth anything or easy to sell or trade...I would like to help my family member but we need to know first what we are dealing with.

I agree with you 110%. If people had a little more compassion and willingness to help maybe more addicts could get better. It is a disease and a terrible thing and like you said people treating addicts like they dont matter anymore doesnt help. As a former addict myself, I could've never beaten it without the compassion and support of everyone that helped me through it. It doesn't matter how bad you want to stop, you still need that help and support system. Trust me 99% of addicts don't want to be addicts, and all these people saying "just quit" don't have a clue as to what they are talking about. If it was that simple there wouldn't be drug addicts. If those people could feel the pain that an addict endures for 3 days they would change their tone. I know, most of the time, it is a person's choice to start taking drugs, but actually I became addicted when I was in a bad car wreck. The Dr. gave me meds and I didnt even know what they were and I took them exactly as prescribed and before I realized it I was totally dependant on them, then it just escaladed from there. Even if you just start to try it, every one makes mistakes and does things they know they shouldn't,but you cant imagine the hold they get on you until its too late. I just hope more people educate themselves on addiction and have a little compassion and understanding as to what these people are going through. Thats the only thing that will truely help the problem. You can't force someone to stop, and I dont think you should enable them, but you can be there to let them know you realize they are going through something extremely difficult and you will be there for them to help them stop. I will tell you this, I dont think theres anything more difficult for a person to overcome than addiction. God bless and please pray and offer support to anyone you know suffering from addiction!

the key is if they want to get clean. It's not just about suboxone there should be day treatment centers helping the person recover. My mother is at this moment detoxing slowly. She has irritability fast pulse sweating and diarrhea. But she would rather come off OxyContin this way than choose another drug that she ultimately will have to get off of I'm not a huge fan of methadone and suboxone unless the person is in a 6 month program

I agree that no one wakes up and say I want to be an addict. It is a disease but unfortunately the addict burns so many bridges that the other person says no more. I'm gonna take care of me
