Caller: 27-year old man calling on behalf of his friend
Problem: OxyContin addiction
Seeking: Drug recovery program that will work with his insurance
Reason(s): The caller states that there was no real reason for his friend to try OxyContin, he did not suffer an injury, nor did he even pretend to be injured. The caller states, “It was one of those things where he heard a lot of people talk about it, and he just decided that he was going to try it. He is funny like that, he will experiment with just about everything once, but honestly, I have seen him do lines of coke before throughout the weekend and never touch the stuff again.” However, according to the caller, the use of OxyContin was different. He stated, “It was different when he took those OxyContin pills, he started talking about how relaxing it was and how it would make him feel better after work. Well, eventually he decided that taking them during work would not be such a bad thing either. Until he got caught sleeping on the job and was sent home.” The caller said that both him and his friend did some research on OxyContin addiction and understand that it is not something that can be resolved overnight. The caller stated, “He understands that he might lose his job if he continues to use and he is also feeling the effect financially. Buying OxyContin at market price is not cheap.” The caller’s friend has expressed interest in finding a drug recovery program that works with his insurance.
