Drug Addiction?

Question by mia333: Drug addiction?
Please help!!! My best friend came to me with a problem that i had no idea was going on. She has been addicted to a pill called ultram for 3 years. She said the moment she wakes up she takes it and takes about 7 a day. I thought she’d be dead by now! She knows she has a problem and wants to get help, but the problem is that she has a 1 year old son and is in college. She said she couldnt afford going to treatment. She couldnt bear with the fact of someone else having to take care of her son knowing that she was in a rehab. So what i wanted to ask if there is a possibility to recover without going away to rehab or something. Are there any recoverers out there that can help me help my friend. Also her doctors prescribes her this medicine and it’s not even a narcotic (or so she said) so im also wondering if you had to rate would you think this drug to be a little better than vicoden or anything like that?

Ultram is a type of narcotic-like oral pain reliever that is often prescribed to treat low back pain. Ultram (tramadol) was approved by the FDA in 1998 and acts centrally (in the brain) to modulate the sensation of pain; it is not an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) does not have the anti-inflammatory effect of an NSAID, however. Its mechanism of action is similar to acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol), but Ultram is a stronger pain reliever than acetaminophen and has a weak narcotic effect.

i copyed and pasted that shes lying and its just as bad as vicodin
