this person has been on this medication regularily for oVer 2 yrs now, makes sure he gets his prescription refilled by his doctor by a calender just about...
I'm assuming you're the mother of this person based on your screen name. Has the person's dose consistently increased over time along with their tolerance? Has this person slacked off on their responsibilities or demonstrated other signs of deterioration?
A person could have a legitimate reason for using vicodin for two years so do not hasten to judge. But it's also easy to find oneself in an abusive situation in that same amount of time. Two years is an amount of time where either they have a drug problem or else some dr needs to find some way to help this person. The pain meds don't fix anything period. I'm not judging, I've been there too.
I would need more specific information before making an objective judgement. You just haven't given us enough information to go on with credible advice.
