    The doctor does not have to talk to you, all he has to do is listen. This doctor knows addiction is a risk with this treatment. He needs to adapt her program or risk his practice. You were pulled into this so no one can complain about anything you do.

    Part of me says walk away and don't look back and be glad you didn't get married, it may not be nice but she is a mess and nothing short of a treatment center will do her any good.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I am married, just not to this girl. :D

    I want to help her out. The whole situation kind of sucks. However, before I go poking about in her business, maybe I should see if she actually wants or asks for the help. :(

    Though as you can all tell, I'm an expert in this field and am in a perfect position to offer precisely the help she needs. ;)

A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Malloc, if she is going to the black market to supplement her meds, she is already in trouble. These are the most difficult patients to try to deal with, because there is a need for the pain relief that is legitimate. You should tell her doctor about the issue. But that is all you have to do to help. Addicts don't accept help until they are ready to want it themselves, not because someone else realizes they need it.
