my daughter is addictes to several prescription meds which is close to taking her life,tried all agencies here in winnipeg manitoba, all are limited resources due to lack of treatment centers and 3 month waiting lists, yet the government is waisting 50 million on a new human xxxx museum as well as a new football stadeum,while so many manitobans are loosing the battle to addictions,idiots should have put the funding into a new addictions center and save the future,the past is gone and always be,you idiots need to wake up, but be that as it may, i need advice on how to help her deal with withdrawl symtoms,and how long do we both have to suffer through it, im not giving up on her,she is now ready for this on her own will,and yes supprise 3 months if i leave it up to the medicare system we have to help,its been a tough haul but will be worth it to have my daughter back, buys her pills off the streets from the rough area, old ladies fool the doctors for every thing from perks to oxys,benzos,t-3s and what ever else to get a high on and sell them for a nice tidy profit to live on, they need to wake the xxxx up as well as some certain doctors who fall for this, shame on u all... but no any advice will help me,if i loose her ill know that i tried my best, thank you
I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter,how old is she if you dont mind me asking?What prescription drugs is she addicted to?I know there are so many different ones out there,especially on the streets,i agree its terrible that these docs are giving them out to just anybody and those people are a disgrace to get away with selling them,it makes me so angry.I know you just want a direct answer but there some things i'd need to know more about,like does she want to get off these herself?will she go to councelling?I know its very hard for you i completely understand where you're coming from and the worry you're going through.If i add you to my list of friends and you friend me back,we can talk privately if you like?
I will probably get a lot of back lash for saying this but I really dont feel this is the fault of the Drs. They have to trust their patients to be honest with them! I am a patient in pain and how does the Dr know without my telling him. There is no way to measure how much pain someone has. There is no test to tell if someone is in pain. Sure-they can do an MRI but people can have herniations and disc degenerations and report no pain at all while others with the same conditions are in horrible pain. Pain is subjective and cant be measured. You cant have it both ways. You want the Dr to treat you when you are in pain but you say you are mad when he gives others pain meds and that person sells them on the street! It is those who sell these drugs to be mad at!!! they are playing the DRs and they are playing and preying on those sick with addiction!!! Most Drs who give pain meds try to be careful but it is easy to fool safegards. Urine tests can be adultrated etc.These people who push these drugs on the street are very clever at getting around safegards. I know there are some unscrupulous Drs out there but for the most part they are honest practitioners trying to help people. They have to trust the people who come in for help. Be mad at the pushers not the Drs. I have said my piece-sorry to have taken over your post but the comments touched a nerve there!
I am very sorry for your daughter. People in the US are stupid enough to think the health system you all have in Canada will work great here. Many want the government to run healthcare here so you tell them loud how crappy government run healthcare is! There are many on this site who have battled addiction and won! You might try posting on the forum too. Robert 325 on the forum is very knowledgeable.
