Katie is a 35 year old woman, wife, mother of 2 young children, daughter, and rising professional. Mostly pain medication and soma muscle relaxant. Lewis husband called to discuss the possibility of doing an Intervention with his wife, Katie. He believed she had relapsed back into using pain meds about 4 months previously.
All the signs of the previous addiction were coming back. I'm not going to go through this again. Lewis said he had been talking with Katie's dad who lived across the country and that he was very concerned and asked if he could call me as well.
We set up a time to meet again the following day. Katie had been to a residential treatment center 3 years before.
The reason for her admission at that time was that she was abusing pain medication. She spent 4 weeks there and appeared to benefit from the program.
She did not do any kind of follow-up. She felt that she had gotten the pain med abuse under control and behind her.
She didn't care to go to the meetings because they reminded her of a low point in her life. Her husband did not attend the family program offered at the treatment center and agreed with Katie that they could put this unfortunate incident behind them and move on with their lives.
Katie initially began taking pain meds because of a low back pain she experienced in a car accident while in her mid's. She took the medication as prescribed at the time but remembered how wonderful it made her feel about her whole life.
Over the next several years there were times she had reason to visit her doctor about one thing or the other and usually was able to walk out of the doctor's office with a prescription for some pain pills. As Katie's life became more complicated with marriage, a child, her career taking off, and the day to day pressures of life, Katie looked for ways to make herself feel better.
She began to seek out pain pills from friend, family, co-workers.
If someone she knew had injured themselves in some way she was quick to inquire whether or not the doctor had given them any pills. When Katie found out how to get pain pills through the Internet, her abuse turned to addiction in a short time.
Things started moving quickly. Pain pills can be very expensive over the internet. Lewis became aware of the situation because of the financial stress on the family budget. He talked with her about this. She claimed she was only getting vitimaim. Then he talked with her parents.1 Dr., Thomas A.
