Dr. Drew's patience was pushed to the limit this week. Take a look at this recap to see why!
Man Dr.Drew needs to let the man who played on Grease go.He don't want to get clean.
I would like to know where you found that ugly thing you call a male counselor, yuck, if he walked into a room and said he was my counselor I would get up and run, well in my condition I would limp out of the room. He doesn't even know what the hell he is talking about. He said in one clip that he had sex for drugs, come on, he would be lucky to get sex at all, I know there isn't anyone alive who would pay him for sex, like I said, YUCK
I watch the show now religiously! I have been on opiate pain meds for 9 years and when I try to quit the withdrawals are so intense I can't take it and start again! Question? Amber was so sick that night but the next day before visitations she seemed to be alot better. Was she prescribed anything like Clonodine, Naltrexe, or buprenephrine? It was like a complete turnaround. I wish so much that I could make my withdrawals tolerable to reach the next step of sobriety.
Dr.Drew,you are the best.I only wish you could of been my counsler at the awful rehab center I was at 4 years ago,a nightmare.Anyhow,please don't have a stroke,everyone needs you.
One thing I do not understand,since I am a recovering opiate addict.Now they have Suboxone for withdrawal,why Did Amber have such severe withdrawals when there is the Suboxone that gives you no withdrawals.I felt her pain and anguish while she lied ton the floor.Been there and it is pure hell.I did not get the chance to have that,but have friends who are on it and its a breeze.I had Clonodine and that helped.
Everyone hang in there.Gary stay on the Depokote and Jeff stay in there,and I hope they keep you seperated from Vicki,she is no help for your sobriety.She is a crybaby.Very unhealthy for you.Take care of yourself.
Amber,I hope you stay clean and your Mom makes it also.Julie you are to cool,I hope your life gets better,and I am glad your secret came out.You did not deserve that.
Julie...you FINALLY said it out loud...you were sexually abused! I know, from personal experience, how freeing and frightening that is. Don't EVER believe for one second that YOU had anything to do with what happened to you. Guilt over someone else's abuse is a killer of the soul! YOU DID NOTHING TO DESERVE THAT! Believe that! You are a beautiful person and I am really enjoying getting to know JULIE! I always liked Tawny, I even named my daughter after that name (only her name is spelled Tawnee), but I LOVE JULIE! That's who you ARE! Think about this....you changed your name at 12...you lost Julie when you were abused. Now mother her, let her know none of what happened was her fault and LOVE HER, because she is you! You are an inspiration to those of us SURVIVORS of abuse...the "V" on your forehead stands for VICTOR...not victim!
Much love, respect and prayer is coming your way from me!
I am trying to get in touch with Dr. Drew. I
have been where Jeff is. I have had 10 back
surgeries, a failed fusion, and broken screws all
over inside me. The broken hardware can not be
removed or I would bleed to death. Before my
initial soccer injury, I competed and won a number
of biathlons. The back injury was as much an
emotional trauma as it was physically painful.
The rebound pain from all the pain medicine made it next to impossible to get off of. I was about to lose my will to live. I ended up
tapering off the medication knowing very well
that each time I reduced my dosage, I would hurt TERRIBLY for 3 days. After the 3 days, I
would slowly adjust to the lower dose. It was
quite possibly the hardest, most painful
experience I have ever been through. I never
seemed to be able to get completely off the pain medicine with legitimate reason.....UNTIL
A MIRACLE cure!!! I was at the end of my rope. I tried steriod injections, acupunture,
miofacial release, laser stimulation, biofeedback, hypnosis, stimulator implants, ...
Then, it happened... I had a botox injection in
my back!! It was the miracle that I longed for.
I get a botox injection every year and I actually have pain free days!! I no longer take
pain medicine and my life has turned around. I
simply do not understand why this procedure is
not used more often. The botox injections in
my back have truly changed my life!! (Of
course I wish they could slip some botox over to my aging face, but the pain relief in my back
and sciatic nerve is unbelievable!!) I hope
someone reads this message and can determine its
applicability to Jeff. It just may be the
miracle he has been searching for. (Don't get
me wrong, however. You have to get off the pain
meds to really realize how wonderful this solution is. You will experience excessive pain
as you get off the meds...It does get better)
You're the best Dr. Drew!
OMG Jeff and his back pain. He needs to read Dr. Sarno book. I laugh at him, he's a real Betty Davis, always going home! lol
Dr. Drew, you're the best, and all the best know it! Triple love the show, when Rod Stewart son going to get with the program?
This show is eye opening. Dr.Drew is just the best. I only wish Jeff and Vicki would end it and get sober apart from each other. Gary is another story. There is more to him than addiction. Everybody keep up the good work
This was an amazing episode. The raw emotion and truth held alot of healing power. I
commend them all for their honesty and strength to let it loose. This is helping me; and I have not doubt - MANY others. It opened many doors to my own journey. Thank you!
I love this show !
