Dealing With a Family Members Addiction to Ambien PLease Help?

Question by smaceroni: Dealing with a family members addiction to Ambien PLease help?
OK my sister has been addicted to Ambien for about 4 years now. She has through detox and rehab twice and hasnt gotten better. She is still very much addicted and supoosed to be going into another detox/rehab. She has been supposed to go nor for 2 weeks but everyday comes up with new excuse or chickens out. I have been supportive or encouraging but now its getting hard for me to be that way cause it hard for me to believe that she is actually going to go. She gets mad when I try to give her “tough love”. She gets mad that my parents and I never went to some type of counseling to learn about her problem. She says that since I have never been addicted I dont know what its like. I understand that, but it doesnt take a rocket scientist to know that its going to be pure hell to go through detox and rehab and stay clean. I just dont know what to do or say to her anymore. Has anyone been in this situation? What should I say or do? She is 34 and Im 26

How to Deal With a Drug Paraphernalia Citation in Texas?

Question by Eddie: How to deal with a drug paraphernalia citation in Texas?
A friend and I were pulled over a few hours ago by a Texas State Trooper. They searched my friends car and found a glass pipe as well as marijuana (it was less than 2 ounces). We were both given a citation for the pipe and the small amount of marijuana. We are being asked to appear in front of a judge. We are both 20 years old and in university. I want to know how we can handle this with as little damage as possible to our professional and educational reputations. I’m deathly scared right now. I feel as if my life has been put on hold. I am begging for some sound advice right now. Are we in deep, or can we handle this situation without any blemishing on our records?
This is a first “offense”, for the both of us.

How Are Prescription Drugs So Abused if Ppl Dont Have a Legitimate Prescription?

Question by rtinsley30: How are prescription drugs so abused if ppl dont have a legitimate prescription?
I am inquiring for a paper I am writing for College Composition, on Drugs in Juvenile Justice. It shocked me that prescriptions are more abused than any other drug besides marijuana. However Marijuana hasnt caused any documented deaths, and kids are oversoding on medication. I realize millions of kids are prescribed meds for ADD, and ADHD, but I am curious about the ones who arent? Where do they get them from? Street prices are expensive, so are they stealing from their parents? Thanks for any suggestions, plz answer my other question if you can, I appreciate, and I am not looking for drugs, lol. Thanks
