I never had a problem with drugs, until moving away with an abusive ex. Once I returned home a year later, I began taking which ever prescription meds that were handed to me. It soon spiraled so far out of control that last year I began stealing my mother's medicine that she needs and is prescribed. I've been caught over and over again, and have come very close to completely destroying my family. I've wanted to stop, I want my life back, I don't want to fiend for pills any longer. My family is not sure how to help me, and I am terrified of withdrawal; I'm hoping its nothing like the withdrawal from antidepressants. Any advice about what has worked for others to get past this would be appreciated, as well as what to expect.
