    The Downside of Methadone Addiction and Treatment

  • I am 35 weeks pregnant here sober for about 4 months and am scared to death that cps will take my daughter. The question of merconium being tested and showing up positive for past use and cps still taking away the child even if you are actively sober when delivering has not been really addressed. I know with using heroin even only a month into the 2nd trimaster will cause a positive in opiates in the merconium, but just wanted to know if current sobering counts for anything. I haven't...

  • A lot of people automatically assume that all drug treatment centers will accept their insurance, but that actually isn't the case. I like the fact you've pointed out some of the facts the stimulants and depressions. Stimulants can be abused in so many ways.

  • i have been scanning thru the posts on here. i sincerely hope no one is using any of the information or oppinions on here to guide them through a pregnancy. there is some very good information , but alot of the 'medical advise is totally inaccurate. although i havent ever used marijuana i can tell you without a doubt that a baby born to a mother who has smoked pot throughout her entire pregnany WILL NOT suffer withdrawl symptoms. Marijuana is not any more addictive as a matter of fact it...

  • This story goes back 25 yrs. My ex husband was a down in the ditch drunk. He got sober and stayed that way for 25 yrs. During that time we split up and I was ok with our 2 boys living with him. In 1998, he started smoking crack. In 2007, he went into a 3 month rehab program and got clean. He coughs, wheezes, moans and groans all night long when sleeping. He's a smoker. He has Hep C and has for years. I suspect from sharing needles in his younger years. This year he has...

    Valium Addiction and Abuse

  • I want to write from personal experience how utterly painful and exhausting it is to be in the position of seeing the co-dependency of your close relatives and being so unable to do much, because, and it sounds banal, but a person really wants to have to change in order to change, and trying to GET the codependents to change can also put you in the position of being one of them! Treatment centers always want the family involved but not everybody is open to doing the work they need to. Too easy...

  • I just learned about Ibogaine and also read the comment you left regarding finding a clinic and being clean and doing great. Where is the clinic that you found? I am a single mom and I have been off pain pills for ten years now but have been prescribed suboxone from my physician which was so great initially, but now I am dependent on it and I am just tired of it being a burden and crutch in my life. All of this has changed and basically stopped me from really being me and living a full...
