help or advice
Posted by nyc on 21 November 2013.
I'd like some help please. My partner is 30 and has relapsed. She uses opiates but has a fascination with needles. She hasn't used in a couple of months but recently got me to obtain a pain med proscriptions. She misused them greatly. Then obtained another and misused those too. We went to get help for her addiction. She has almost taken and tried to take her life with heroin overdoses. I have seen her high. Its horrible. The needle addiction too is there. We were given naloxone I think its called but I'm nor sure. That stuff comes in a syringe. She even tried to shoot up with that needle and water. I struggle to get it. We are newly marries and I feel so helpless. So far she has been given methadone and this is here second day. I'm finding it hard coping too. I feel hopeless. What should I do?
