I think you should talk to your dr and get his advice on detoxing from the drugs. I'm glad you found us and I really hope you feel better soon.

Scott - the fact that your doctor can't see you until Tuesday does not mean you have to wait until Tuesday to get help. As Dee pointed out above, there is free help available. I was able to get into an outpatient detox for zero cost because I didn't have health insurance. It took about a dozen phone calls to find a place that could help, but they're out there - all you have to do is look and be determined. Best of luck to you. Hang in there.

I do have health insurance but am worried to see anyone in my small community because i am well know throughout my county. i cannot afford to lose my job, but so need to stop because of the financial burden and i feel i have changed and this is out if control. Just want to be the best husband and father i can be. Without pills to makes me happy.
