Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Has anyone taken the vivitrol shot? what was your experience? Positive/negative? My son also takes other prescribed drugs such as quetiapine fumorate, zoloft hcl, gabapentin, and trazodone. Seems like too much medicine to me and add to all that the vivitrol shot??? He has just gotten out of inpatient treatment and has moved into a sober living home.

I have several health issues that require me to get pain meds from my doctor. I use them as prescribed. It has gotten to the point that my doctor and my family thinks I am addicted to pain medication. I don't take pain medication everyday.... Only when medically necessary. Feeling frustrated.
