Hi everyone. I’m new here and I need help from others who has been in my shoes. I’m a nurse and I’m addicted to meds. I never dreamed it would be me to fall into this but I did! It all started about 4 years ago after knee surgery and all those meds handed to me. It felt so good to be pain-free and the feeling u get from them is amazing! I never dreamed tho that I could get addicted to the pain meds tho. I thought I was stronger but I wasn’t. My question now is I want off these meds. I read about suboxone treatment and how well it worked if ur in a program with therapy involved. My question is can I start this without telling the board? Will they find out anyway? And can I lose my license if I do? I’m so scared but I want my life back!! .. I am prescribed the pain meds but I can’t stop! I need a program like this to help me I believe.
–Also, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this group it’s so encouraging to know I’m not alone that addiction can happen to anyone. And I wanted to let u all know once I realized I had a problem I quit working. It’s been a few months now and I really need to go back, I don’t know tho if I’m allowed to if I get into a suboxon treatment program. I don’t know if I can wait till I finish the program either financially . I’m jus scared and need some real advise thank you all so so much for having me and helping me!
