Hey everyone, I am wondering if I could get an opinion concerning my mother's ongoing addiction to opiates. I'll describe what I remember as best I can, as I am wondering what chances she has at recovering, if any. At the peak of her addiction she was on a whopping 900mg of oxy a day. She did everything from steal money from her children to pawn family heirlooms, and yet she still will not admit to ever even being addicted. She doctor shops under the ruse that she is in pain, and more than often her injuries are self inflicted. I know for a fact (Dont ask me how i know) that she is still doctor shopping, seeing a different doctor at least twice a week. I know she has not been able to get her old dose of 900mg a day, since her old doctor kicked her out of his practice. I don't know how much exactly she has been taking for the past year or two, but i think its safe to assume she is still seeking as many opiates as she can get. I recently talked to an addiction psychologist who said that at the rate her addiction has progressed nothing short of 3 months in in patient rehab and living in a halfway house for a year would help her stay clean I'd like opinions on two things: If her rate of doctor shopping continues in Colorado, how long should it take her to get caught? What are her chances of recovering from 900mg a day oxy habit without admitting she is an addict or ever has had a problem? I appreciate you advice.
