I assume she is on Oxy. She states she cannot sleep, has sweats and muscle cramps.
She stated she wants to be seen by a doctor (outpatient only) especially since she has a job now and likes it. We want her to drop her boyfriend who she followed into this mess. She use to be a leader versus a follower so... This is difficult for us to see her like this.
Are you someone who knows first hand? I'm ignorant and naive. I just want her to get help. I've given her the #'s to the drug/alchol clinics in her area. She did say she had to act fast. Because I assume the withdrawal will only get worse. She did say this was serious.

As to being treated by therapy,has she stated the reason,other than she knows she has a problem?Misdiagnosing your own problem and self-treatment aren't conducive to long term recovery.
NA meetings and in house treatment is suggested from the first.
Detoxing from any addiction like this can be deadly!This is a fact,not a myth.
You have to be the clear thinker in this situation,your opinions and guidance have to be the deciding factors in your daughters recovery,treat her as a baby,taking her first steps.
This may be a tough time for you,and her,but in the end,recovery is quite a relief to all around the addict.
I hope this helps you see a little about this disease,and I will be back in the AM to see if we can discuss this further.(it's 2:32 AM my time,got to get some sleep...
