I am the mom of an oxycontin addict


My 22 yr. old daughter came to me 2 wks ago and said she wanted to get sober.

For 2 yrs she has used up to 100mg of OC(Oxycontin) a day. Due to the fact that we could not get a hospital to admit her for medical detox we have been detoxing her at home.

On the 14th she is scheduled to enter a 30 inpatient treatment program but today informed us that she does not want to go…. no in or out patient treatment “she is scared.”

I know that she is afraid of the unknown but I am afraid of what will happen if she does not go through with the treatment. She has so much life ahead of her I cannot sit back and watch her throw it away.

Prescription Drug Abuse

Stay strong! Rehab is essential. Being a parent isn’t always about being the good guy. I believe you should assertively encourage her to get some treatment.

Prescription drug abuse is getting harder and harder to prevent. Kids are getting craftier and much more bold. They see our medicine cabinets as a means to get their hands on something that will get them high.

I’m part of a public health initiative called the American Medicine Chest Challenge designed to raise awareness about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and provide a nationwide day of disposal ? at a collection site or in the home ? of unused, unwanted, and expired medicine that will be held on November 13, 2010 in communities across the country.

I am hooked on oxycontin and have lost my mom 2 months ago. your daughter is very lucky i hope she knows, I miss my mom so much. She was my touch stone. and life really sucks I was on line last nite talking to a drug counselor he told me it sounded like i needed to be on them after looking up what i have. the reason i am on them even though i told him i was snorting them.

She MUST go into treatment!

I’m hoping that your daughter will listen to you and go into the treatment program you have for her. Without the program her chances of relapse and failure are very high.

I recommend you take any action necessary to get her into the program, maybe the treatment program will take her sooner… like today and get her started on her recovery.

Good Luck and we’d love to get an update once she’s in treatment:)
