Congrats!!! Wanting to quit is great . I quit a year ago. Anyway at the community hospital here they have a preventative care dept where they offer help with these things. Perhaps they have a department like that at your local hospital. Also some drug manufacturers will offer some help for various drug needs. For some patches you should contact nicoderm company to see if they can help at all. Maybe the cancer society can help too. It never hurts to check these places out. Good luck and I hope this helps some.

mu son said Inderal can be used to help stop smoking. I say Inderal is NOT a stop smoking drug. I know it is used for high blood pressure and irregular heartbeats. Who is right? I didn t want to challenge him because maybe I m wrong. Thank you. YYYY@YYYY

Dear Advisor, I have recently stopped using cocaine after being a social (1-2 times per month) for a number of years. Will using Calpol Soothe & Care Saline Nasal Spray help to repair the persistent scabs I have at the base of my septum? Any advice on self treatment would be gratefully received. Regards.

Our 31 year son has thoracic back issues. He is an addict, alcoholic and liar. He has been through rehab twice. At age 14 and again in his early 20 s. He is on MS contin prescribed by a pain doctor in Austin, TX. We just read the web information on MSContin and believe he should not be prescribed this medication as an addict. He is also a patient with MHMR. We believe he needs a dual diagnosis. Mental and Substance Abuse. Are there rehab centers that work with patients with no insurance with a dual diagnosis? He does not have a job. He got his TXDL back yesterday after a 180 day suspension for DUI. He still has not gone before the judge due to lawyer extensions. His biological father paid an attorney $2500 to represent him in court. The lawyer keeps putting extensions due to his schedule. The first court date was December. The second date was January and has now been pushed to February. We are concerned that his mentally ability combined with substance abuse (even though legally prescribed) keeps him from functioning. Do we stand to the side and watch the fall? Do we attempt to find a dual diagnosis treatment facility and try and get him on the new health care system (Obama Care)? We see the gravity of the situation and need guidance. If you can discuss dual diagnosis treatment facilities and the likelihood of Obama care paying for rehab? Thanks,
