my family is dealing with addiction. i was raised by my grandparents, and my mother and aunt, my grandmas only two daughters, are both drug addicts. they do not use street drugs, except occasionally crack when they have the money. They arent considered drug addicts because they are addicted to prescription drugs prescribed to them. My mom once told us she takes up to 30 oxycodones a day. We deal with this on the daily. Them fighting about drugs and trying to get more. She wants to get help now, but i have lived with this since i was very little. i dont believe when she says she wants to get straight. I'm just wondering about how many people deal with addiction in the family or addiction in their own lives. tell me about it. i would like to know your experiences. thank you.

Experience has not only heard of the need for perseverance to treatment .
