I would try and get your niece on a subutex or methadone program i have not took gear for 3 or 4 years if i can she can.Giving her valium is ok as long as you dont let her get a habit on them because they are ten x worse to come off than heroin.Hope i have helped you ps try to get her drinking plenty of fluids cos coming off heroin makes you dehydrated.
it seems to be that 17,any help we have asked Dr,s for isnt available with her being 17 im not niave,im giving her valium on a nite and they seem to help a little,but she hasnt been out of my sight for a week the 1st couple of nites were hard.this morning she awoke and said had a good nite sleep,which im guessing is a good thing,she is like any other 17 year old,with tantrums,and mood swings.it seems that if she is occupied with something,she is fine,she has never cleaned up in her life.yet my flat is spotless.in your experience would you say the worst is over?i no it is gonna take time but the people she use to hang around with,would u say keep her,away from these so called friends thanks for your advice
Hi Welcome to the forum!
I have a few questions for you. has your neice ever thought of rehab or a tampering med like methadone or suboxen? it s really hard to come off heroin cold turkey. How many days has it been since she last used? She is very lucky to have you to help her, be sure to tell her all the time how good she is doing staying clean and that your there for her no matter what! Its always good to hear these things, I will wait for your responce,. Best of luck..... oh and has she thought of after care programs to help her remain clean?? If you need any help setting anything up i would be more than happy to help find a doc who subscribes suboxen and after care programs. Stay Strong she needs you!
