Dear Hello Kitty
 
 
I was wondering if you can send the website that you found for suboxone.  I know this is off topic of CP but my oldest daughter was bad into herion and she just got out of detox in AZ and them moved back out here with me.  I would love to know a bit more about this drug they have her on to help with the withdrawls.
 
Thanks so much
Lara

Dear Lara,
I know you didn't direct this toward me, but I thought I'd just add a little info. as I've got some background in the addictions field. Your daughter is hopefully in a follow-up outpatient program; if not, she needs to be. And most all credible programs have a family component. So I'd suggest you try to go with her once, or if your physical problems prevent that, ask her to sign a release so you can talk with one of her outpatient treatment providers (someone who could answer your questions) especially since she is living with you.

The other thing - and I know this sounds harsh - you will need to watch closely any pain (and this includes non-narcotic addictive meds.) meds you have around the house. Even going so far as to lock them up. They will provide at the least a temptation for your daughter. It's a lot to have to deal with, considering all you've got on your plate now, but if she relapses by taking some of your meds things would be even worse. But suboxone therapy for pain is different than suboxone therapy for heroin addiciton; that's why it's good to talk with your daughter's doctor if at all possible.

Hope I didn't intefere with your question to kitty.

Dear Palady,

Of course I dont mind that you chime in.  I really am glad you care enough to offer your advice.  I do have my pain meds locked up as well as heres and what I dont is in my purse that I take with me everywhere I go.  She just had a doc appointment today and I went with here and we all had a long talk with the doc. 

I understand she needs outpatient as well just havent gotten around to that as of yet with everything else going on.  I am hoping to get to that next week.  She has only been back with me for a little over a week.  I have no problem going with her to any meeting that I can make I deff think that the more you are involved the better for the kids.  I am very much a hands on mom. 

The soboxone therapy for drug additics I think form what I gathered form the doctor today is somewhat the same as from pain pills.  Its the same concept although he did tell me that this is a long term mantaince 6 mths to a yr.  I was a bit surpised about that one.  I was told by him as well that one of the reasons that they are prescribing them for herion additics now is that it blocks the opiate resptors in the brain so even if they did do the drugs again they dont get high and they would acc. have to stop the suboxone for 5 days for it to get out of the system. 

I give them to her everyday 3x a day and watch her take them so that I know.  She doesnt get them unless I can see her take them.  Plus she has to sign a contact with this doc to get drug tested every month and the first time she shows positive for anything other than what she has been prescribed he wont prescribe her any more and he will contact all the other doc in the area and her name will go on a list.  There arent many doc. that are able to prescribe suboxone  here in the charleston area.  And she had to sign a contract with the pharmacy as well. 

So I really hope this will work for her...But I realize all I can do to help her is just love her and give her my support and tuff love.  Laid the laws down and if she doesnt follow them then shes out.  I know it sound harsh but I know enough to know that you cant help someone who doesnt want to get help and plus I have the younger ones to watch out for as well. 

 

Thanks for the post Palady and you never have to say your sorry for helping or offering up some advice:)

Lara,
You're welcome. And you're definitely on the right path with her. You're not being harsh at all. It's the only way she'll recover - but recovery is possible. I wish all of you the best!
