Do not waste your time trying to apply logic to your Sisters actions and try not to invest emotionally in what happens with her in court she committed a crime knowingly and was just fine and dandy with it because of her addiction,so now she will have to live with the consequences of those actions should she decide to even appear in court,in many cases they will jump bond and live in the "underground " drug culture instead of getting a prison sentence /or a kind judge who would sentence them to rehab and community service. Let her know that you love her she is still a part of the family but do not leave her at one of you homes alone unsupervised do not give her Money of any kind,do not give her a ride in your vehicle if she has drugs on her she can throw them under the seat and deny they are hers in which case under law the registered owner or driver of the vehicle is then held for drug possesion you could be arrested for a Felony by being nice to your sibling and i'm not telling you worst case examples or blowing things out of proportion i have actually lived some of these very things when my wife became a drug addict.View Thread
all you guys need to come clean because with the fed's on the warpath its only a matter of time before your caught or your Doctor stops writing scripts for the drugs because doctors soon will be required to go to classes on each and every painkiller they prescribe and then patient classes will follow and nationwide pill identification is being worked on so every pill is traceable back to the pharmacy and to the doctors prescription that that pill was dispensed for so buying and selling "the black Market" is going to get pounded so be prepared get off drugs now so your not caught with an illegal pill and get a mandatory 25 year sentence for possession of 1 pill.i am sure you could do a lot more with your life in 25 years on the outside than 25 years in federal prison for 1 pill and detoxing in jail so do yourself a favor lose the drugs.my email is at the bottom of "my story" should you want to talkView Thread

Well here where i am my doctor asks if you have ever used marijuana on the patient initial visit form as well as looks through your records and if you answered yes or ever tested positive for it, you will not be accepted as a Patient, even if you lived in a State that had a medicinal program. She has Zero tolerance for Pot use and feels it is not a useful tool for clinicians to treat patients with.
I just want to caution you though i have never been addicted to drugs but for a period of my life i really wanted "out of it" as in death i had been seriously abused as a child and felt my whole life was just a throwaway that no one would miss. I was wrong after a very serious attempt friends and things popped out of the woodwork and came to me all with the same ?? "why didn't you call me" but this is about you and the thing i learned after my first attempt which i am hoping to prevent in you and that is : after you make a first attempt if you survive it suicide attempts become easier and easier with taking less thought than taking the garbage out on the corre ct night, so please do not let yourself go there its ugly and lonely and will hurt more, my email is in my story click on my name if you need someone to talk to who understands, i will listen and obviously not judge as i have been there.
In the late 70's Methadone clinics stopped giving patients Methadone and any kind of benzo whatsoever due to the increasing number of fatalities from respiratory failure.
Even today i am a chronic Pain Patient and use Fentanyl and Oxcycodone with very very low doses of 2 benzos because Doctors are really afraid of "respiratory failure" brought on by the combination of opiates & benzos its a fine line and no doctor wants one of their patients to "trip" and end up on the wrong side(that being Dead)
Dont Look at it as "13 Long days since your last dose" that sounds like a regretful bad thing what you should do is turn that stinkin thinkin around and say its 13 days since i grabbed the reins and the drivers seat of my life back from chemical dependency and Wow i cant wait to see what the next 13 brings. Be courageous Be Positive, If you do not Love and Respect yourself how can you expect it from anyone else!!.
Yes Tabby there's tons of Med's that can help with Anger also look into meditation biofeedback and all the different ways of deescalating yourself from lashing out. BUT you do need PROFESSIONAL HELP to do this so that you do it right and dissipate that anger and not turn it inwards.
