Thanks a million for creating this forum DocJohn . I need a place where I can talk and not be afraid of getting in trouble for how I feel or what I say. When I tell staff how I feel here at this rehab they 'watch' me.

I told them I was feeling angry one day and all of a sudden all the counselors where watching me and making mental notes of everything I said. It was scary and I haven't opened up since.

You may think I'm being paranoid but I'm not. I've been to more than 10 rehabs and I know when staff are watching someone closely.

Hi, still a new member, haven't checked back in here for a while... I'm dealing with substance abuse( drug of choice, amphetamines )... to the point that it's become a drug dependence... But most doctors that I have seen always say it's social anxiety, coz I don't like being around people... I'm in Adelaide and I just want to find out who would be the proper person to see....

By the way well done to the people on there sober days.. You show so much strength... Well done

I would like to share my story, I had a part-time job as a bartender fitted in perfectly with my addiction. I always drank enough to black out nearly every time. During this period in my life I had a lot of panic attacks. Then my family took me to an accepted alcohol recovery center. With their help and the solid recovery program made a good change in my life. I am no longer addicted to any habits. Good luck guys.

DocJohn et al: could we please have a sub-forum for partners of the addicted?

I don't want to step out of line and post where those with problems want to feel safe, but on the otherhand I really want to connect with others going through what I am, are perhaps struggling, share stories, and learn coping techniques from.

I've made a few posts in the Relationships Threads but it just seems the wrong place.

Also new here. Been clean 16 months and recently started going to meetings. I'm searching for an online sponser bc my area lacks people from NA. Hope this helps me.

Maybe having a conversation with your husband will make you feel better about the situation. He may be able to help you and might not even think of it as you being a "pill head."

Have you tried to mention it to him? Or explain your concern for the things he has been doing and the problems you have seen? It is possible that he knows you you but does not want to be the one to bring up the conversation because he is worried about what you will think.
