My little sister has been taking Vicodin for 2 years now and I just found out today. I have no idea how many a day she has been taking. She wants to get help and stop taking them but we do not know how to go about it. Can anyone please help???

My sister has been trying to stop herself but she can't deal with the pain. Says her body hurts all over and she has also started drinking.

She was taking on average 3 pills a day along with Loratab.

UPDATE: I guess she is not ready to get help. She is still hanging around the same people and says she can do it on her own and she feels fine. She is being just downright nasty to our Mom. My Mom took her car away from her yesterday because my Moms name is on the Title, Loan and Insurance and my Mom doesn't want anything to happen and it come back on her. Right now all my sister cars about is getting her car back and nothing else. I guess she is going to have to hit rock bottom before she sees she has a problem. She is just telling lie after lie and lie to cover up lies. This is just a crazy mess and I feel so bad for her because she is only 20 years old and has her life ahead of her. All she has done this morning is call my Mom all morning calling her names and telling her she is going to call the police on her for taking the car. I have no idea at this point what to do until she truly admits she needs help and wants to get it. She has said she needs help but that is the extent of it.
You can try the thomas recipe or suboxone and methadone treatment. Or you can see if a doctor will give your sister a small amount of vicodin to help her ween off of it down to like one or two a day so the withdrawls wont be so bad. Or she can just kick it cold turkey this would be the hardest way to get off the vicodin but is the most beneficial if you ask me cause going on suboxone or methadone its still an opiate of a sorts. I do hope one of these methods could be of some use i wish you and your sister all the best of luck. Please let me know how it goes.
