Caller: Man seeks treatment for neighbor across the hall
Problem: Percocet addiction
Seeking: Non 12 step rehab for prescription drugs
Reason(s): The man states that he has become close with his neighbor who lives across from him. Because they both moved into the apartment complex at or about the same time and did not know anyone else nearby, he said that both he and his neighbor would play videogames together or watch movies. However, the neighbor’s recent behavior over the last two months concerns him. He states that his neighbor has become lethargic, will not answer the door, and rarely leaves the house anymore. The man said, “After a while, I just decided to confront him. Not because he owes me an explanation about why he will not hang out with me, but because I was worried about him. Anyway, I asked him and sat on his couch a while and he finally told me that recreational use of Percocet of all things turned into what he called ‘a nightmare’. He said he is buying the stuff from people he knows because he does not have a prescription for it. Apparently he is losing money hand over fist.” He said that he believes the negative mindset that his neighbor is in, combined with the Percocet addiction is a dangerous combination. The man also promised his neighbor that he would look for help. He said that he does not know what type of insurance coverage his neighbor has, which means that he will need to look for something that would work with a payment plan.
