I am planning to speak to my Gp tomorrow, requesting that he/she prescribes Naltrexone so that I can begin my road to recovery safley. Looking for some advice/tips on how to get my point across that I need something now whilst I remain highly motivated to tackle my addiction?
I a have been to my Gp several times in the last few months seeking support to come off alcohol. I was admitted to hospital for 3 months in 2008 as an inpatient pin order to detox. Have had a on/off relationship with alcohol since, but have been drinking half a litre of vodka in the evening for the past few years, I can't remember when I last had a dry day. The Gp has referred me to alcohol services but I am currently number 14 on their waiting list and don't feel I can wait that long. I have tried to cut down on several occasions since Xmas but my withdrawals symptoms have been severe enough for me to up my intake.
Any advice on how to get my needs met sooner by the Gp would be gratefully appreciated. I feel like I am fighting a losing battle to stop drinking due to lack of support, whilst fighting an equally losing battle with my addiction to alcohol.
