Not to worry. Let me help you out.
Welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thank you for posting your query.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the entire post.
The black spots in the feet are probably due to the METH addiction.
People who abuse crystal meth for long periods of time at very high doses often develop medical issues . These symptoms might include:
Persistent skin sores
It would have been great had you posted a picture of the dots.
Don’t believe the commonly held notion that there is nothing you can do to help an addict until he wants help.
meth users have often found denial to be the only effective form of self-protection.
You need to understand that.
While it might be true that she can’t kick an addiction to methamphetamine alone, it is true that she can recover from it. Make her believe that.
With counseling and perhaps medications, she can learn to control her addiction and she can slowly repair the physical and mental damage the addiction has caused.
Assure her that she might not even need to get admitted in a hospital to get the help she will need. OPD programs for about three months are considered the ideal way to begin treating the problem. Once that program is complete, she may need less-frequent counseling and support
Assure her that it can be cured with proper evaluation and treatment . Hopefully she will agree to visit the ER.
Hope this helps.
