Well hon, I will tell you what worked for me. I was hooked on ultram. Some people say it is not addicting. But I am here to tell you it is. If I couldnt get ultam, I would take anything, like percocet, oxycotin,vicodin, anything, because if I didnt my body would just ache.I wanted to stop, God knows I did , but I couldnt function feeling sick all the time.I am sure that is how your relative feels. No rehab or detox is going to work because it didnt for me. I bet your relative is hurting bad without anything. I was on the verge of suicide. I couldnt live this way anymore. Some days I couldnt get anything because I didnt have any money or I couldnt find it anywhere.And oh, I would be sick.I would sit on the toilet with a bucket in my hand because I would be throwing up plus diareaha at the same time.I heard people talk aboout methadone before but I thought it was only for heroin addicts. I went to talk to a clinic about it and they said I could sign up. That pain pills was just like herion, it was an opiat. I cant spell that word. I hope you know what it is.People say alot of bad things about methadone, but it sure saved my life.I would tell any body hooked on pills to get into a methadone clinic. I have been clean of pills for five years now.ISo I would tell your relative about this as soon as you can.I will have you both in my prayers.
