I a 22 year old soldier that just returned from iraq. While in Iraq i was wounded and underwent emergency surgery. I was prescribed heavy amounts of opiate pain relieve. including morphine injections 30mg oxycodone and eventually 80mg oxycontin. I spent 3 months in the hospital. when i left the hospital and came home i had one script left for the 30 mg oxycodone.. to make a long story short i am hooked. I went to my primary care tried explaining the problem about how sick i get when i withdraw. she gave me a scrpit for 5m oxycodone said take 3 a day for a few days then 2 then 1 then none and ill be fine. if this doesnt work she said she will check me into a rehab/ detox. needless to say her little attempt to weem me off failed. so now i have turned to the streets and have been getting pills illegally. this is everything im against. ive always wanted to serve on law enforcement and put drug dealers and scum away and now im associating with them. I dont want to go to detox because that will ruin my chances of ever being a police officer as i will be obligated to inform them of any drug treatment i received. are there any options for me ? should i just book a flight cross country for a week and force myself to go through with drawel ? thats all i can think of. any help would be great.
