Hi, my dad has been addicted to pain pills for god knows how long and I have been trying to think of ways and read on how to get him off of them. I once felt the need to take percocet more than I should be she. I broke my arm but I didnt. I just want my dad back because right now I basically feel like I don't have a father figure in my life. I miss my dad so much and just want him to get better so we can be like best friends again instead of strangers. I have looked through his drores and he is taking A LOT of acetamophine( or howeveryou spell it) with codeine. Could somebody please help me get my dad back because I don't know what I'm going to do if this keeps up.:(

dear I want my dad back, sweetheart, I went thru something similar with my mom, but it was alcohol and one of the national support groups did help, it is called Al-anon and it is for the family and loved ones of those who are addicted, they even have ala-teen for teenagers. I am saying some prayers for you and your dad. You may see his problem but it is likely he doesn't, so be patient. I also had a dependence on rx pain killers and used a medication called suboxone to help me live my life opiate free. If you will go to YouTube.com and look up SuboxDoc, he has many truthful easy to understand videos and almost any question you might have on suboxone.i suggest you watch the 2 part video on how suboxone works first and then others he has listed on his channel. He is not only a dr, he has a phd, and used it himself, now he switched to being a psychiatrist who treats addiction. The other person on YouTube you can watch is Maple2609, he is a young patient who tells how suboxone changed his life for the better. You also go to suboxone.com's webpage and read info there that might help you understand it and they have a tollfree number and a here to help program. does your dad know of your concerns about him taking the tylenol3, and does he have an injury or condition that might really cause pain, or do you feel he is abusing them. This site is slow sometimes on Sundays during the day, please be patient, I am sure others will answer, but it might take awhile. Also realize that a hurricane hit up the northeast coast and many are without cable, power, phone and internet, I know of several members here who normally post but may be without internet right now. WELCOME to our site. I offer my support and Prayers, keep checking back, others will answer sooner or later.
