Morphine and alcohol has destroyed many lives.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Jeanne,

Your partner sounds like she is in real trouble. Because addiction is disease that attacks the brain, your partner may not realize the danger she is in. Sadly, 70% of opiate addicts (Morphine is an opiate just like heroin) die from their addiction, from suicide, a car accident, or they overdose.

You should be at your wits end and you need to take action if you're going to help her to be one of the 30% who survive. I highly recommend you begin going to Al-anon in Reno at least twice a week. Al-anon will show you how to work the 12 steps and find a sponsor. You and your sponsor can create an action plan to help your partner to get the treatment she needs to quit.

Good Luck,

Debbie
