My SO is now 4 weeks clean from prescription pain killers. It hasn't always been easy but it's looking on the bright side. Ask away!!

No questions here. He's at the 7 month mark. He had been 3 years clean when he fell of the wagon for about a month. This time he went to a shrink that specializes in recovering addicts. It's made a world of difference. He was diagnosed with clinical depression and started on an anti-depressant. Within a week I noticed a difference and he says that this time he isn't even really craving. Just keep in mind that relapse is possible and good luck.

I know, that's why I put it in quotations. I've dealt with addicts my whole life, maybe I should become a rehab person! >_<

He was clean a year or two before I met him and fell off after being prescribe them when he broke his ribs playing soccer He goes tomorrow back to his doctors and has therapy afterwards. I keep on the edge of my seat because I know how high of a percent of him relapsing is. Thank you!
