choose a good and dedicated rehabilation center not the one which makes money.your responsibility will not end by joining him to the rehabilitation center but you have to co operate to the norms so that your child do not revet back to the drugs again

yes i was a drug addict, i use to take marijuana. the rehabiltation center is very good they boost you morale, give mental support, love and affection. so i advice every drug addict who has made the mind to quit drugs, to go for a rehabilitation centre.

certainly it helps as I heard about their work in bringing the life back. choose a good centre near your area so that he should not feel as if he is abandoned. Give moral support.

I have a concern that a friend my be using drugs again. Before he got treatment he use to go to the bathroom after each meal and didn t even eat much. Maybe this has nothing to do with drugs but it s the samething he did before he entered treatment and it stopped when he came out.

Hello,

I have a 24-year-old daughter who has been dealing with a drug addiction for over ten years. She recently had consumed a gread dealm of PCP ("Angel Dust") and was admitted into the hospital because she was roaming around the streets naked, acting delusional, and having severe mood swings. She was putting herself in harm's way. After being admitted for only a day or so, I spoke to her doctors on the phone. They said that she would be released if she could answer a few questions, in a sane manner. My other daughter and I picked her up, and she was still in bad condition. She had chopped a great deal of her hair off, talking in a strange voice, and behaving insanely. After bringing her home, she slept, woke up, and threatened to hurt me physically. Then, she ran out the door. I could not catch up with her. A few hours later, I located her and brought her to a rehabilitation facility, but they were allowing her to make her own deciscions because she simply sounded sane and voiced a plan of action to eliminate her addiction to marijuiana, pain killers, and other recreational drugs. Sadly, I discovered she has been doing thse drugs behind my back, while still in her rehab outpatient program. Since she is an adult, it has been difficult for me to find laws that would permit me to have her taken away to a drug rehabiltiation facility, where she can stay against her will. She has been putting herself in danger by doing these drugs and I do not see her improving. Are there any laws or medical rules that would permit me, or a physician to have control over her medical affairs, since I am her parent? I know she is not a minor, but I am afraid she will die because she has no home of her and and does not want to live with me. Drugs are easily accessible to her , wherever she goes. She needs to have a psychiatric evaluation, couseling, and permanent drug rehabiltation. How can I make this happen?

I am a school psychologist- I just interviewed a parent who reported that her newborn used to sweat a lot at birth and required salt shots. The father was a drug addict. Mother denied that she took drugs. Could the excessive sweating in the baby be a symptom of withdrawal?
