I'm not an addiction specialist, but I have some knowledge on the subject.
First, however, you really need to provide more information regarding your boyfriend's OxyContin usage, which does not appear to be medically legitimate or legal, since you state he does not have a prescription for it (or otherwise, please clarify what you mean by this). For starters, please answer the following questions:
1) How many pills does he take on a typical day?
2) What strength are the pills?
3) How does he take the pills (meaning, does he swallow them whole, crush them & snort
the powder, etc.)?
4) How LONG has he been taking OxyContin on a REGULAR basis?
If you can reply with the answers to all 4 questions, I might be able to give you a little more direction. Without these answers, it's pretty much a crapshoot.
