Support- Father is a prescription pain med addict
My father has just come home after being in the hospital for a week. He has been a long time addict and abuser of prescription narcotics and opiates. He got a new doctor who prescribed him OxyContin and he overdosed and aspirated something in his sleep. I found him in time to call 911 and save his life.
He admits he has a problem and he says he going to a pain clinic this time for help. I hope he does. And "intervention" and a drug rehab will never happen.
I was told to go to Al-anon for support - I'm discovering how much his addiction is affecting me and how I am being manipulated by him . .. but this group seems more alcoholism based- is there a place for me at meetings? Are there specific meeting that cater to family members of other types of addicts?
